The Pointed Diamond – One of the Earliest Cuts

February 5, 2013

We love history here at Joseph Schubach Jewelers. Since we’ve been in business for over 100 years, we’ve seen many styles come and go…then come back again.

Here’s one of the oldest cuts of diamonds: the pointed cut, also referred to as a writing diamond.

Polished with very few facets, almost the entire original eight sided crystal of the diamond is left intact. There are usually four facets which lead to a pyramid shape. Popular in the 15th – 16th centuries, this cut flourished for generations.
