Story

An Asscher cut diamond is spectacular. Developed (and later patented) by Joseph and Abraham Asscher of the Netherlands, the cut is known for its deeply angled corners and remarkable depth. It is cut with a series of parallel steps which create more internal refraction and fire and has a deep culet at its base which accentuates its depth by drawing the viewer in with its astonishing clarity. With its distinctive shape, this cut is sometimes referred to as a square emerald cut as it is nearly identical to the emerald cut and has a pavilion which is cut with rectangular facets as is the emerald cut. Modern Asscher cuts have a total of 74 facets per stone.

Only a platinum mount of fine azuring and exquisite detail such as this one can do justice to an Asscher cut diamond of 1.51 carats (I color; VS1 clarity). Simply prong set, the lovely diamond is accented with mille grain work throughout the mounting. Flanking each side are two platinum tiers set with four (4) single cut diamonds for a total estimated diamond weight of .16 carats. The tiers are rectangular and pentagonal shapes which segue into a gently tapering shank with patterning on the top and sides. A pierced and open work under gallery sports intricate forms and curves akin to the structural components of a futuristic bridge.

This ring is accompanied by an EGL USA certificate for the main diamond.

Date: Circa mid to earlier 20th century.
