Asscher Breathless!

In our  Breathless rings  we feature beautifully cut diamonds set in elegant hand-crafted platinum rings.  Here we feature a striking  0.89 carat Asscher-cut diamond set with two Fancy Intense pink diamonds.  The beauty of the diamonds and the setting will leave you breathless!

We created the ring in platinum to complement the cool geometry of the Asscher cut and the vivacious sparkle of the pink side diamonds.  The band of the ring is fashioned from half round platinum wire that sweeps upward and narrows as it approaches the side diamonds.

The Fancy Intense pink diamonds are round brilliant cuts that we set with three prongs to create a tapered line in the design.  When creating a beautiful jewel it is the small details that are most important.

Each of the diamonds is set in rounded platinum prongs that taper in width from top to bottom,  creating a graceful setting.  The Asscher-cut diamond is set slightly above the side diamonds,  so the gemstones flow across the wearer's finger.

Note the thickness of the ring's band and the strength of the setting.  This ring was made 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.
