The platinum band is finely chased on both sides of the ring, a style so reminiscent of the Art Deco era. This particular ring has a very contemporary look, it has a timeless quality that comes from being such a simple, refined design.
The Asscher Cut
In 1902 Joseph Asscher designed and patented his namesake original Asscher cut. This emblematic cut was the world's first patented diamond cut protecting it from replication by other companies. The Asscher Diamond Company held its exclusive patent until the Second World War and saw strong sales internationally, particularly during the 1920s and 30s when the cut and company were both at the height of success.
The original design had 58 Step cut facets, a small table, high crown and steep pavilion with cut corners. An accurate description would be a cut cornered square emerald cut diamond.
The Asscher cut was a staple of art deco and art nouveau era jewellery, with its straight lines and faceting arrangement making it perfect for clean and graphic elements brought to life by the movement.
Because of their facet arrangement, high crown, and depth, Asscher's can produce outstanding brilliance and are known for creating a ‘hall of mirrors’ effect.
