A diamond is forever, and forever it shall be a gal’s best friend. Her favorite diamonds are going to be those found in the ring he gives her when asking for her hand in marriage. This ring will be a part of her, as will his love for her. When a man steps forward and seals his destiny, he wants everything to be perfect, as perfect as she is. So finding the ring that will forever be a symbol of their love is hard to do. There are many beautiful rings on the market, too many to even count. However, there are some which stand out above the crowd. A great example is the asscher cut rings. Asscher engagement rings have a sort of majestic brilliance that is not seen in other cuts.
This style of cut has been around for a very long time and was devised by a man named Joseph Asscher while he was looking to make a cut similar to the emerald style. This particular cut is a big hit with women all over the world. Those fond of the emerald cut stones generally choose Asscher’s cut because of its similarity. Nearly all fine jewelers proudly sell asscher cut rings, and offer loose stones that can be put into practically any style of ring chosen by a customer. This cut of diamond is commonly found in engagement rings, but can be placed in other rings as well as other types of jewelry.
Several jewelers have discovered the demand for asscher cut engagement rings, and now offer many blank styles so that either the customer’s personal diamond or a loose beautiful asscher cut diamond can be placed in them. Many of the rings are done in 14k white gold, but are available in platinum as well. Other jewelers have the asscher cut diamond already set in 18k rings and blank settings in a variety of styles that are so beautiful they will dazzle any woman lucky enough to get them. This cut has been around for a long time, and many of the original rings are still around from the early Nineteenth century. They are rare and highly coveted.
The styles the asscher cut diamonds were placed in many years ago are now available through many fine jewelers. These rings are very popular for their vintage look and feel; many artisans are even creating new styles that represent the eras gone by. Vintage jewelry styles are being incorporated in many fine jewelry pieces now that nearly everyone has a taste for the treasures of years gone by; perhaps a style of antique ring they remember their grandmothers wearing.
