Asscher-Cut Diamond Engagement Rings
Gaining in popularity, the Asscher-cut diamond puts a twist on traditional diamonds and is sometimes called the "square emerald." Here, we share a few of our favorite Asscher-cut diamond rings.
It doesn't get much more glamorous than an asscher-cut diamond engagement ring. Steeped in Old World elegance, asscher cuts just have that extra-luxe look to them. Square in shape with beveled edges and step-like facets within the diamond, asscher-cut engagement rings are inherently Art Deco, which is exactly what sets them apart from other square- and rectangular-shaped stones, like princess- and emerald-cut diamonds. Asscher-cut engagement rings are guaranteed to give you a precious piece of jewelry that's totally one of a kind. Because the stone itself has such a specific aesthetic, asscher-cut rings tend to be designed in more classic or vintage-style settings. Asschers are their best in a three-stone setting, with the intricate cut of the diamond itself stealing the show, and complementary pairings like a trillian or pear-shaped diamond flanking the stone at its sides. It can also stand on its own, with a vintage-style band complementing its Gatsby-era qualities. Of course, that's not to say you can't make asscher-cuts more modern. Brooklyn-based jeweler Mociun used a show-stopping asscher as the centerpiece of a multi-color, multi-shape cluster ring, while designers like Kwiat and Brilliant Earth set these stones on their side, creating a more diamond-like shape. And for the more minimalist bride, there's nothing wrong with setting this special stone as a solitaire—in fact, because this diamond shape is more unique, a solitaire might be all an asscher needs!
