Asscher diamond cut

Asscher shape


A not so common but very beautifully unique shape and nearly identical to the emerald-cut, except that it is square. Also, this shape has a pavilion that is cut with rectangular facets in the same style as the emerald-cut.  When choosing SI-clarity be sure to view the clarity plot on the diamond certificate, because this shape highlights the clarity of the diamond. When choosing a colour grade, consider that while the price of a J-colour non-round diamond is exceptional, colour may be slightly visible in its corners.

Do you remember when I started talking about the 4 C's? the first what's color now we go with cut and here are some tips: 

Diamonds cut is undeniably ther most important of the 4 C's. Even with the close to perfect colour, size and clarity. If a diamonds cut is not correct in proportions  all other characteristics will not be as highly valued. The way in which a diamond is cut will determine how the diamond reflects light and hence determine its brilliance and sparkle. A poorly cut diamond will appear lifeless and dull. 

From the diamond authority here's a gorgeous diamond asscher shape ring:



but can I tell you a secret? I am not a big fan and I couldn't even find an interesting ring that will make me want to be post. Only this one above...


And for now cheers from the land of down under xxx
