Asscher Breathless!

In our  Breathless rings  we feature beautifully cut diamonds set in elegant hand-crafted platinum and gold rings.  Here we feature a striking 1.03 carat Asscher-cut diamond accented with two Fancy Pink diamonds.  The striking beauty of the diamonds and the elegance of the setting will leave you breathless!

We crafted the ring in platinum to complement the cool geometry of the Asscher cut and the vivacious sparkle of the pink side diamonds.  The center Asscher-cut diamond is set in four sturdy platinum prongs.  The Fancy Pink side diamonds are set with three prongs to give the line of gemstones a tapered look.

The shoulders of the ring sweep upward and gently narrow as they approach the side diamonds.  When creating a beautiful ring it is the small details,  like Fancy Pink diamonds and gently tapered shoulders,  that give the ring an air of elegance.

The platinum prongs that hold the diamonds are tapered from top to bottom,  giving the setting a graceful, elegant appearance.  The Asscher diamond is set slightly above the side diamonds,  so the gemstones will flow across the top of the wearer's finger.

Note the thickness of the ring's band and the strength of the setting.  This ring was created to be an heirloom that will be passed from generation to generation.

The inside of a beautifully crafted ring should be as nicely finished as the top.  Note the smooth, even cut-outs beneath the diamonds,  the seamless transition from setting to setting,  and the graceful narrowing of the band as it approaches the diamonds.

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 of popularity.
