However, nothing is ever really that easy. Because most people who use the term refer to a standard developed in 1919 by Marcel Tolkowsky.

‘Tolkowsky cut’ was once an early moniker for the brilliant cut. The cut employs 58 facets (or 57 if no culet). Twenty-five on the pavilion (below the girdle) and 33 on the crown (above the girdle). Each radiates out from a central point to the girdle edge.

The Difference Between Old and New Modern Brilliant Cut

What distinguishes a regular old and new modern brilliant cut diamond is a real head-scratcher to some. Although they may appear to be relatively similar, the two have several significant differences.

Custom diamond engagement rings with an old mine cut have square corners that are slightly rounded. The old European cut, on the other hand, is nearly round.

However, diamond cutters were able to begin mass-producing diamonds with rounder edges in the late 1800s. This is mainly due to the invention of steam-powered bruting machines.

However, it wasn’t until the early 1900s that motorized diamond saws gave rise to the flawlessly circular form of the modern brilliant cut.

The diamonds with old brillian cut have a top facet, or “table,” which is often tiny. Compared to the modern brilliant cut, the crown (or the region of the stone above the width of the stone) is often a little taller.

The old cut diamond’s pavilion depth, which is the area beneath its broadest point, is often deeper. Old cut diamonds rarely have a nib at the end. In contrast to the modern brilliant cut bespoke diamond rings, which has perfectly pointed tip resulting from cutting-edge technology advancements.

Instead, custom old cut diamond rings have flat culets. Diamond cutters back then believed having flat culets allowed more light to enter the stone and boost its brilliance.


Custom Old cut diamond rings lack the uniformity of modern brilliant cut bespoke diamond rings because they were faceted by hand or with crude equipment. Although exact symmetry is required for the modern brilliant cut, vintage cut stones usually have facet alignment issues or uneven shapes.


The old brilliant cut bespoke diamond rings look best with vintage and antique settings, which honor the cut’s historical roots and origins.

On the other hand, nearly any setting is suitable with the modern brilliant cut custom diamond rings, contributing to its enduring popularity.
