no culet = not an oec??
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 09-28-08 , 12:31 PM


One of my treasured rings has a diamond with no culet. I estimate that the stone is at least 1.5 carats. Does this mean it's not an OEC but possibly a transitional cut?
The stone is definitely not a RB as it looks "lumpy" but gives broad flashes of color under most lighting conditions. The ring is yellow gold with a basket setting. Recent posts show rather large culets on reportedly OEC diamonds. I'm confused and would like inputs from those who know.
Thanks in advance.

The culet has little to do with the style of cutting. Most of the OEC's that I've seen are pretty round and so you may have an even older cut style called an Old Mine Cut, which were kind of a lumpy cushion shape. Most have culets, but I have seen those that didn't. Got a picture ?
