Our High Crown Radiance® Gemstones is often imitated but never duplicated.
Antique Cuts (High Crown Radiance® Gemstones)
The Schubach’s High Crown Collection is a full line of Radiance® Gemstones cut and polished to the highest standards. Our High Crown Collection has gloriously tall, pillowy crowns, small tables, tiny culets, and all of the charm and character you look for in old cuts. The High Crown Collection is truly reminiscent of old cut diamonds. As with our standard Radiance line, our High Crown Collection is cut to maximize brilliance, beauty, and crispness, making our stones the most authentic on the market.
Our High Crown Radiance® Gemstones is available in two colour grades, summer white and antique lace. Our summer white is a near colourless material, equivalent to GHI on the diamond scale. Summer white will face up white, but some tint will be noticeable though the profile of the stones. Our antique lace colour is a warm and ethereal shade, perfect for antique cut stones. It is JKL diamond equivalent but due to the depth of the stones, larger stones could be warmer. Our antique lace lends to the authenticity of our High Crown Collection, but it does show through the table. If you do not like to see colour in your stones, summer white is a better option for you. But if you love the warmth, characteristic of old cut diamonds, you will love the warm glow our antique lace stones have. Please note that diamond equivalent grades are approximate, and that the larger the stone, the more colour it will show.
Square Antique Cushion Cut
We have two amazing square old cushion cuts for you to choose from! The first is what we call our ACC, or antique cushion cut. As with all of of the cuts in our High Crown Antique Moissanite line, the ACC has our signature high crown, small table, chunky facets, and small culet. The difference lies in the faceting. The ACC faceting pattern features a contrasting or illuminated windmill or star pattern under the table, through the corners of the stone.
Our other old cut cushion is our old mine cut, or OMC. This differs from the ACC because instead of the illuminated windmills under the table, the OMC has an illuminated Maltese cross. Please watch our cushion video, paying close attention to the light and dark contrast that you see through the stone as it moves in the light. Neither of our cushions are superior to the other, but we have found that clients tend to prefer one cut over the other. Both of our old cut cushions have the romantic and charming characteristic you look for and expect in antique cuts. Their pillowy tops and chunky pastel fire are sure to make you swoon.

A transitional cut is a round cut, that historically, was cut from the 1920s to the 1940s. These are round cuts that were formed at the end of the old mine and old european era, but before the modern day round brilliant. As such, transitional cuts have elements of both antique and modern stones. Transitional cuts have many old cut characteristic, like an open culet and high crown, but they are blended with a more modern faceting pattern under the table. Transitionals are known for their incredible fire and their unique, one of a kind look.
Old european cuts are a classic in the world of old cuts. The old european cut, or OEC, is a round stone, with a beautiful high crown, small table, open culet, and chunky faceting pattern. The most highly prized OECs have a floral pattern under the culet, and ours is no exception. Our OEC is feminine and ethereal and full of bold fire and brilliance that you expect from old cut stones.
