This squared/octagonal shape diamond was first patented in 1902 and has become a favorite in fine jewelry ever since. It features a small table, high crown, broad step facets, deep pavilion and square culet. The Asscher cut was inspired by the table cuts of the Renaissance. However, it was a big departure from the brilliant cuts that dominated the 1800s and was a forerunner of today’s standard emerald cut. The Asscher cut was developed prior to 1910, when the rotary diamond saw revolutionized modern diamond cutting. Features dramatic, cut corners and more light and fire than an emerald cut, the Asscher is one of elegance and refinement. These earrings, handcrafted in precious platinum with Euro-wires for comfort and security, contain perfectly matched 5.01 Asscher-cuts, each VS clarity, for a total weight of 10.02 carats. The diamond setting contains 14 round diamonds for a total weight of .15 carats. GIA certified.
