(item # 102739)
This classically-inspired engagement ring features an asscher cut diamond prong set in yellow gold, with split prong set diamonds on the shank. It was created for a client from Renton, WA, who tried on a few pieces in our Bellevue, WA showroom to get a feel for what she wanted before beginning the custom design process.
We communicated with her primarily online after her initial visit. We went through several sets of revisions as well just to make sure that every detail was exactly right.
Asscher Cut Center
An asscher cut is similar to an emerald cut, but it is always square, and it’s generally more brilliant thanks to some slight differences in the size of the table and step facets. It was first developed by Joseph Asscher in 1902 and was quite popular in the following years. This beautiful cut recently began making a comeback. Diamond Engagement Rings
The particular diamond in this piece is 1.30 carats, and the style of cut helps to reinforce the ring’s antique overtones. It’s cradled by four talon prongs, and the way these come to a point across each of the stone’s truncated corners helps highlight the intricacies of the shape and cut.
Small round diamonds are split prong set all the way around the band of the ring, helping to minimize the amount of metal shown between the stones while also adding some vintage flair. The fact that the diamonds go all the way around makes it an eternity band, and this brings overtones of eternal love to the design as well.
There are additional diamond accents on the sides of the prongs and the basket surrounding the lower portion of the diamond. These are round and bright cut set, and they ensure the piece sparkles no matter what direction it’s viewed from. Inverted V shapes form the sides of the basket below the main diamond, and these were one of the details our client worked closely on with our designer. Design Your Own Engagement Ring
