Frequently asked questions about asscher cut engagement rings
An Asscher cut engagement ring is any engagement ring that features a solitaire Asscher cut diamond, or a three stone setting with an Asscher cut at its center. A Asscher cut diamond features step cut facets and is similar to an Emerald cut diamond, only squarer in shape.
Because of the Asscher’s deeper cut, some of its carat weight is actually concealed from view. This means that, on the finger, an Asscher ring will look smaller than a Round Brilliant of the same carat weight. Consider moving up in carats for a more substantial looking diamond.
Match your Asscher cut engagement ring with a wedding band based on style or metal color. For Solitaire, Halo, or Three Stone engagement rings, for example, choose a petit Eternity, Infinity, or Devotion band in matching platinum or solid gold for the perfect pair.
For certain engagement settings, like the Signature V or Curator, consider pairing with their matching wedding band styles.
Choosing between an Asscher or Cushion engagement ring is not simply choosing between a rounded or squared shape. Each diamond creates a unique look, so it’s important to consider how they would pair with your own style.
Both diamond shapes have an undeniable vintage appeal and feature predominantly in Art Deco inspired engagement rings. Their facets are what make these shapes stand apart from one another the most. An Asscher dimond ring features step cut facets that create a hall-of-mirrors effect in the light, while Cushions feature brilliant facets that resemble crushed ice. Think about the shine you want your diamond to produce before choosing.
