French Cut

The French Cut diamond is one of the oldest diamond cuts that had appeared first, according to various researches, in the 15th Century.

It was developing over the time, in order to first become fashionable in the 17th century, and was certainly popular in the Art Deco period of the early 20th century, as can readily be seen from jewellers’ magazines and advertising materials of the 1920’s, featuring watches with French Cut sapphires surrounding the watch face. The French Cut appears to have remained a popular cut for stones set into watch faces and can be seen in watches advertised in the 1940’s.
