How to Identify the Best Asscher Diamonds
There are many ways to identify the best cut, however when it comes
to Asscher diamonds they must pass one important test. When looking
straight at the gem, the angles should make it appear as though you are
gazing into infinity. This unique trademark alone makes the Asscher one
of the most romantic diamonds in the world. The diamond should also
carry an ideal length to width ratio of .95 to 1.05. Finally, inclusions
are easier to see in step cut gems. To be unnoticeable your Asscher
diamond should be rated VVS2 or higher.
Choosing a Setting to Complement the Asscher Cut
Because the Asscher cut diamond is so striking by itself, a minimalist
setting is recommended although not required. Asscher cut engagement
rings look amazing in simple, four-pronged settings or a band that shows
off its angled corners. Hard edges look great because the mimic the
Asscher’s strong lines, but rounded bands look just as beautiful too. If
you choose to pair the Asscher with smaller accent stones, square gems
tend to complement the diamond’s strong lines best.
Who Can Wear the Asscher Cut
The Asscher is a strong, statement cut. It complements the confident
woman who appreciates the classic simplicity of symmetry and who
doesn’t necessarily believe that more sparkle makes a better diamond.
She will appreciate the gem’s mathematical precision, regal history, and
the romantic notion that whenever she looks at her ring, she is indeed
gazing straight into infinity.
