Asscher and Pink Diamond Ring

Asscher and Pinks!

Our client wanted to create a ring with classic elegance and a dash of pizzazz.  He wanted the ring to celebrate his and his fiancee's unique personalities and their special commitment to each other.  She also loves the color pink;  so he knew that he had to include something special and something pink for this once in a lifetime occasion.

We began by helping him select the center Diamond,  a gorgeous Asscher-cut Diamond weighing 1.36 carats.  To help him make the best choice we brought in a variety of Asscher cuts through our  Diamond Brokering Service.  We focused on stones with high color and clarity grades and classic Asscher cut features.   He selected a diamond with clean geometric lines, dramatically beveled corners, a small table, exceptional color and clarity grades, and, of course, a mesmerizing "Hall of Mirrors" effect.

For a unique center Diamond you need to find special side stones.  We happened to have in inventory a stunning pair of natural Fancy Intense Pink Diamonds.  The Princess-cut Pinks were the perfect complement to the stunning Asscher Diamond.  The strong visual geometry of the Asscher cut is perfectly balanced by the intense pink dazzle of the side Diamonds.

Our client wanted a ring that was elegant and not overstated,  so that the emphasis would be on the striking combination of rare Diamonds.  We hand crafted the platinum ring based on our  Breathless design.  The gently rising shoulders and gracefully tapered prongs are ideal to accent these unique Diamonds.

We created the prongs with a graceful taper from top to bottom and then finished the top of each prong with a "spear tip" to best showcase the Diamond.

Note the thickness of the ring's band and the strength of the setting.  This ring was crafted to last a lifetime and become a family heirloom that can be passed to future generations.

The inside of the ring is as nicely finished as the top.  Note the smooth, even cut-outs beneath the Diamonds,  the elegant taper of the prongs,  and the graceful narrowing of the band as it approaches the Diamonds.

We love the trilogy of the Asscher-cut and Pink Diamonds.  They create a striking interplay of crisp white light and dazzling pink brilliance.

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.



We love creating beautiful rings with striking Asscher-cut Diamonds.
