The Asscher cut diamond engagement ring is a timeless beauty that has been a favorite since its creation in the early 1900s. The stone’s square shape and angled corners give this diamond shape an outline that is almost octagonal and is often compared to the bright and clear emerald cut diamond ring. This shape was chosen when Joseph Asscher realized that he could capitalize on the rough shape of some stones and retain more of the finished diamond.
The 58 facets in the Asscher are created by cutting a series of step-cuts (like stair steps) in three rows on the top of the diamond and three rows on the bottom of the diamond. The intersection of these facets create a concentric pattern of light and dark as seen in the image above. These beautiful facet patterns create a windmill appearance that radiates outward from the center of the diamond.
The center Asscher diamond in this halo style engagement ring setting is 0.86ct and GIA certified as E-IF; it is internally flawless, exceptionally white and has an excellent cut. Everything about this Asscher is perfection. This center stone is brightly accented with a halo of equally white round diamonds. The split shank and filigree accented center basket is also highlighted by more micropavé set round diamonds in this gorgeous and sparkling platinum ring.
This incredible 18k white gold diamond engagement ring showcases a 1.01ct Asscher as its crown jewel. The center stone has incredible sparkle and is nearly colorless. It is immediately surrounded by six round cut diamonds. The top of the shank highlights princess cuts which are channel set in an 18k white gold ring that is delicately adorned with a gorgeous milgrain design. The sides of the shank also feature additional round diamonds that also accent the criss-cross connectors for the center basket. There is no angle in which this ring does not visually dazzle and sparkle.
