The beautiful Asscher cut diamond ring has a 0.94-carat square emerald cut diamond set in a custom platinum Richard Landi antique mounting with 0.89 total carat weight matched square cut emerald side diamonds.
The Asscher cut diamond measures 5.70 x 5.64 x 3.68 mm so it has a length-to-width ratio of 1.01, which appears square to the eye. The GIA considers shapes square when the length-to-width ratio is 1.05 or less. The asscher cut diamond has a 65.2% depth percentage and a 61% table percentage. For asscher shape diamonds, we suggest a depth of 58-69% and table of 50-65% with smaller percentages producing larger size for the carat weight and better cut.
The table cut diamond rings of the Renaissance Era inspired the asscher cut diamond. The Asscher shape has a similar visual appearance to the emerald cut but the asscher cut is most notably square in shape. The asscher shape diamond is different from the emerald cut shape due to a high crown, smaller table and larger step facets, which produce more light and fire than the emerald shape diamond. The asscher cut diamond also features dramatic cut corners, which make the setting process easier than setting the pointed corners of a princess cut diamond. Asscher cut diamond facets create a wide windmill reflection in a concentric square pattern. The asscher cut diamond is a great choice for women that prefer a mesmerizing glisten of the old world to the crushed ice appearance of a brilliant cut diamond.
The matched square emerald cut side diamonds measure approximately 4.34 x 4.33 x 2.91 mm. The width of the Asscher shaped side diamond needs to be a little shorter than the length of the adjacent center stone to allow the prongs holding the clipped corners of the side Asscher diamonds to fit inside the prongs holding center Asscher diamond. As you can see, there are four prongs, which protect the Asscher-shaped diamonds without overwhelming the appearance with too much metal. This is a sign of excellent artisanship.
The diamonds are set in a custom platinum antique mounting created for these specific diamonds and the client’s finger size. The finest three stone diamond rings are custom-made so that the side diamonds fit closely next to the center diamond and appear as non-stop diamonds across the finger when viewed from the top. The four-prong basket style head holding the diamonds provides a sturdy and secure base for the diamonds. This one of a kind three platinum mounting has yellow gold filigree on the sides of the baskets and milgrain edges on the shank with a hand carved floral pattern between the miligrain and on the sides of the shank.
This exceptional antique mounting accentuates the beauty of the three Asscher diamonds. This diamond ring is particularly attractive to those who love the elegant look of the three Asscher diamonds set in a custom platinum mounting that reminds you of generations past. This ring is sure to stand out in a crowd because of the distinctive Asscher shaped diamonds and the graceful platinum mounting
