A Stunning Pair of Asscher Cut Diamond Earrings
A few weeks we worked with a customer to created these stunning single stone Asscher cut diamond earrings. Although the design of the earrings is simple, we worked closely with the customer to source a pair of spectacular, dazzling Assher cut diamonds. The diamonds are both GIA certificated and have a total carat weight of 2.02cts, roughly 1.00ct each. The diamonds have a matching colour and clarity grade of G, Vs1 – meaning they are a clear white colour, near colourless and only very slightly included. Any marks, blemishes or inclusions in the stones can only be seen through magnification.
About the Assher Cut Diamond
The Asscher diamond is a distinctive cut with prismatic brilliance. The shape is mainly square with cut corners, but can sometimes be slightly rectangular. The diamond has 58 facets and has a traditional step cut, similar to an emerald cut. For the diamond to appear perfectly square, a recommended length to width ratio is 1.00 to 1.05. The classic diamond was created by Joseph Asscher in the early 20th century during the stylish and popular Art Deco movement. The diamond was the first cut to be granted with a royal title, in recognition of the role of the Asscher family.
