Asscher Cut

Asscher cut diamonds are a simpler shape to create compared to other diamond shapes such as pear cut diamonds. Less technical expertise and time is required to shape such a beautiful and intriguing cut. The cost of labour is also significantly reduced which can then be  passed on to you as the end consumer. 

Asscher cut diamonds are well priced. Choosing a square cut diamond such as an Asscher cut or a fancy cut diamond in general is a very efficient way to reduce wastage when transforming a diamond from a rough stone into a stunningly polished and shiny diamond ready to be worn by the elite/modern women of the world. Around 20% more of the diamond rough can be effectively used when shaping a fancy cut diamond as opposed to a round brilliant cut diamond. In layman’s terms less carat weight is lost in the transformation process from a rough diamond to a polished and certified diamond.

(Should you get very technical it is safe to say that Asscher cuts are more durable than square cuts, for instance a Princess cut diamond. Unlike a Princess cut which has very distinct and sharp corners, an Asscher cut has rounded corners making it less prone to get caught on clothing etc. Also less likely to chip when accidentally knocking the diamond hard as you go about your day.)

Why Choose Asscher Cut diamonds

Asscher cut diamonds are special for various reasons.

You can expect nothing less in the year 2020 than compliments all the way with an Asscher cut diamond easily being compared to a needle in a haystack. It is unlikely to find another woman out there wearing such a stone of  individualized choice being in a different class of exclusivity all together. Another factor or two to take note of is that natural inclusions will be seen easier in an Asscher cut as in a round brilliant cut diamond for example.

 The reason being is that the light is less distorted in an Asscher cut making it difficult to ‘hide’ the inclusions that may be visible to the naked eye upon close examination. The yellow tint in a natural diamond is more visible in an Asscher cut when buying a diamond with lower specs. To avoid seeing a yellow tinge and or the inclusions or marks in a very special diamond such as this immaculate Asscher cut we are talking about, you will need to look at better clarity and a better colour subsequently increasing the price of the respective diamond exponentially.

(It is and will always be first prize to view diamonds before making a purchase considering the above mentioned. There will always be many more options that fall well within your budget and are very affordable by looking at one or two colours and clarities less and sometimes even reducing the carat weight ever so slightly to get a once in a lifetime bargain.

 These lowered specs are not always as intriguing and enticing when looking at the specifications on paper or via email. We feel it necessary to again clearly state that you will be doing yourself the biggest favour by booking an appointment and having a look at the diamonds yourself. Your eyes see what they see.

To your surprise you will be astonished to see the collosal difference in price when comparing diamond A, B and C. The big and most important question is whether or not you can see the difference in price when looking at the various options with the naked natural eye. So often the answer is no and therefore perhaps it will be smart to choose the diamond that offers the most value or visual miles for your hard earned money and on top of that remains budget friendly.)
