Story

The Asscher cut diamond was developed by Dutch brothers Joseph and Abraham Asscher. Known for its deeply angled corners and remarkable depth, the diamond is cut with a series of parallel steps which creates more internal refraction and fire. The deep culet at the base of the gem accentuates depth by drawing the viewer in with its astonishing clarity.

With a 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.

A radiant Asscher cut of 1.09 carats (I-J color; VS2 clarity) stair steps its way to heaven in a sophisticated platinum mounting with chic and classic lines. On each side a trio of baguette diamonds, six (6) in all with a total estimated weight of .20 carats appear very clear, clean and white to the eye. Attention to detail and fine azuring set this mid-century ring apart from its peers.

The ring is accompanied by an EGL USA certificate for the center diamond which has been graded in mount and has a retail replacement value for the center stone alone of $7840.

Date: Circa 1950.
