Asscher-cut Diamond and Fancy Pinks
Custom Engagement Ring

Asscher Tingle!

Recently we created a ring with a Royal Asscher diamond and six Fancy Vivid pink diamonds channel set along the shoulders.  We called the ring  Royal Asscher Tickle.

A couple loved the design and requested several modifications.  Instead of a modern Royal Asscher cut they desired the more sedate optics of a traditional Asscher-cut diamond.  They also wanted the diamond to be bezel set instead of prong set.  Their custom designed engagement ring is pictured above.

The ring is hand crafted in platinum with softly rounded edges and a glowing satin finish.  The center diamond and fancy pinks nicely complement the cool white of the platinum and the magical geometry of the Asscher cut contrasts beautifully with the smooth, rounded shape of the band.

The bezel setting raises the center diamond above the pink diamonds.  The setting is sturdily crafted and securely holds and protects the gemstones.  The band of the ring is thick and gently tapers towards the base,  creating a comfortable fit.  Like all Bijoux Extraordinaire jewels,  this ring is made to last a lifetime.

The underside of the ring has crisp,  symmetrical windows beneath each diamond,  an exceptional polish,  and beautifully finished edges.  At Bijoux Extraordinaire we believe that fine jewels should be finished as nicely on the underside as they are on the top.

The Story Behind Asscher-cut Diamonds

The Asscher cut was first created in 1902 by a renowned diamond cutter,  Joseph Asscher.  Several years later Joseph Asscher was chosen by King Edward VII to cut the famed Cullinan diamond for the English crown jewels.

Asscher-cut diamonds are usually octagonal in shape or a square with beveled corners.  They have a deep step-cut crown and pavilion that create what we call the Hall of Mirrors effect.  When you look directly into a well-cut Asscher diamond you see a wonderful illusion like an infinite hallway of reflecting mirrors.

The Asscher cut of the early 1900s evolved into the elegant Emerald cut that became so popular during the Art Deco era.  Many of the antique diamond cuts  - Asscher, Old European and Rose cuts -  are now experiencing a revival in popularity.



We enjoy creating rings with the less traditional, more unusual diamond cuts.
