European Cut

eu·​ro·​pe·​an cut | ˌyu̇r-ə-ˈpē-ən kət

noun

The style of diamond cutting popular from approximately 1890 to the 1930s, typified by a round girdle, a smaller table in relation to the diameter of the stone, and a large culet

The large culet appears to create a hole at the bottom of the diamond when viewed from the top, since the large culet lets light escape instead of reflecting back to the viewer
