ASSCHER-CUT DIAMOND RINGS
Adored for their distinctive square shape, asscher-cut diamonds are a striking alternative to the more popular round, princess and cushion-cut stones. The asscher cut’s step-cut facets and large, open table emphasize diamond clarity and color – with extraordinary effect.
The asscher-cut’s antique silhouette makes it a wise choice for those looking for a diamond engagement ring that stands out from the crowd. Elizabeth Taylor, Zooey Deschanel and Gwyneth Paltrow are just some of the famous women who have worn asscher-cut diamonds over the years. Here are 5 unique ring styles that capture the fancy diamond cut’s brilliance.
For a contemporary twist, this design features tapered baguettes that emphasize the asscher-cut’s geometric appeal. A plain band allows the center diamond to draw focus, with its eye-catching ‘X’ table and cropped corners.
This micropavé halo engagement ring complements the asscher-cut diamond’s cropped corners, for a style that’s bursting with vintage charm. More micropavé diamonds adorn the band, accented with delicate milgrain beading.
A split shank draws the eye to the center of your stunning asscher-cut diamond. French-set diamonds bring further brilliance – a counterpoint to the clear, large table of this fancy cut. This ring blends classic and vintage details for a look that’s wholly unique.
A subtle parting in this ring’s band meets your asscher-cut center diamond, highlighting its bold angles. An embellishment of micropavé diamonds across the band allows brilliance to reflect from all angles.
It’s easy to see why this French-set ‘V’ halo is one of Ritani’s most popular designs. While its classic brilliance complements a variety of diamond cuts, we particularly love its effect as a setting for step-cut diamonds, such as the asscher and emerald shapes. The elegant halo accentuates, rather than hides, these diamonds’ distinguishing silhouette
