“With the advent of new technology in the 1920s an effort began to take shape to create a standardized round cut diamond. The old European diamond began to "transition" to what some call early modern cuts or early American cuts i.e. the transitional cut diamond.
Transitional cut diamonds are most often seen in jewellery from the 1930s to the 1940s.
They featured larger tables, a lower crown, and a smaller culet than the previous old Euro”.
