This beautiful Asscher cut diamond ring has a 2.24 carat square emerald cut diamond set in a custom platinum Verragio engagement ring with three rows of princess cut and pave diamonds with 0.80 total carat weight.
The Asscher cut diamond measures 7.72 x 7.53 x 4.85 mm so it has a length-to-width ratio of 1.02, 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 64.4% depth percentage and a 59% 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 inspired the Asscher shape diamond. The asscher cut diamond has a similar appearance to the emerald cut but the asscher shape is most notably square shaped. The asscher cut diamond distinguishes itself from the emerald cut diamond with a high crown, smaller table and larger step facets, which produce more light and fire than the emerald shape diamond. The asscher shape also features striking cut corners, which make the setting process easier than setting the pointed corners of a princess cut diamond. The asscher cut diamond facets create a wide windmill reflection in a concentric square pattern. The asscher cut diamond is a great option for women that prefer a compelling glisten of the old world to the crushed ice appearance of a brilliant cut diamond.
The custom Verragio diamond ring displays the asscher cut diamond with three flowing lines of alternating pave and channel set diamonds. The four prongs gently curve up from the shank with beautiful pave diamonds. While the center row of diamonds on the band consists of channel-set princess cut diamonds. The four prongs curve out from the base of the band to create an attractive design from the profile view. This custom diamond ring provides a unique look by combining three different diamond shapes; the asscher diamond, round diamond and princess cut diamond. The glisten of the asscher cut diamond contrasts with the sparkle of the diamond engagement ring to provide a graceful and sophisticated appearance. Often, diamond rings are set too high and are at risk for damage. This Verragio mounting is set at a nice height to exhibit the brilliance and sparkle while protecting the asscher shape diamond.
