Asscher Cut Diamond Stud Earrings Shopping Guide
As a jeweller with many years of experience, I would say that asscher cut diamond stud earrings are an uncommon, but beautiful, choice in jewellery.
The many facets of an asscher cut diamond and the stepped squares of its design allow light to reflect off the diamond brilliantly. If you want a great sparkling effect that perfectly suits the stud earring style, then the asscher cut may be what you’re looking for.
Just as with any other kind of diamond, though, there are both good dealers out there and bad dealers. Because of this, it’s extremely important that you stay as informed as possible. No one wants to pay a lot of money for a diamond that is cut poorly or is just plain ugly.
If you don’t know absolutely everything that there is to know about diamonds, you can get a better idea of what to look for in an asscher cut diamond by reading this guide before you buy.
Symmetry is Important in Asscher Cut Diamonds
What makes the asscher cut diamond so great is its symmetry and geometric shape. It should be a perfect square and the step facets should appear even. As you look down on the diamond, there should be a pattern of concentric squares.
Basically, it should look perfectly symmetrical on all sides to the naked eye, or else you are dealing with a poorly cut diamond. The asscher cut relies on this structure and symmetry for its beauty and sparkle. The light will reflect off every one of those facets, and give it that regal look.
If you want a diamond that is cut well and proportioned correctly, you will want to hire an experienced jeweler to choose the diamond for you.
Colour is Easier to See in Asscher Cut Diamonds
Since asscher cut diamonds have such wide and obvious facets, you can often notice any colour in them more easily than you can in a round cut diamond. This doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing, as some people like a little bit of colour in their diamonds.
However, if you are looking for a colourless diamond that shines with a white light, then you will probably want a diamond that is closer to the colourless end of the spectrum, graded from D to F.
Much of the time, the degree of colour is hard to see with the naked eye, so you may not know exactly what you’re getting just by giving the diamond a quick look. It’s best to go to a jeweller who can thoroughly inspect your diamond under magnification. An expert’s eye is much better at spotting imperfections and helping you get your money’s worth.
Clarity is More Important in Asscher Cut Diamonds
Often, because of the balance and geometry of an asscher cut diamond, it is easier to see inclusions that mess up the clarity. Inclusions are flaws that can make your diamond less beautiful and give it less of a brilliant sparkle.
As with colour, you need to have your diamonds inspected carefully before you decide. Having an honest jeweller who will tell you about the flaws in the diamonds that he’s selling is extremely important, since there will always be some flaws and no diamond is perfect.
Your diamond should also be GIA certified, as they are the most reputable source in grading diamonds.
Always Look for a Jeweller With a Warranty
Working in this business, I often see people making mistakes when choosing the right jewellery. For example, they might choose settings that don’t go well with their diamond colour or they might choose a diamond shape that doesn’t sparkle as much as they would want. The biggest mistake by far, however, is not choosing a jeweller who stands behind his work.
There are many companies out there that are happy to sell you the cheapest, most low-grade diamonds around. The price is often nice when it comes to these inferior diamonds, but in the end it’s usually not worth it because the diamonds are ugly and don’t sparkle as much as a better diamond would.
Other times, the company might provide you with a decent diamond, but the settings will be cheap. For example, they might break easily and cause the stone to fall out, or they might be made of a low quality metal alloy that turns your ear lobes green after your wear your earrings.
All of this can be extremely embarrassing, especially if you’ve bought your diamond jewellery to wear to a special occasion.
If you want to find a jeweller who will sell you high quality diamonds at a reasonable price, having a warranty that covers defects and protects against future problems is a good sign.
If you consider nothing else about a jeweller, then at least consider their warranty and service plan. If they are any good, they will expect a long-term relationship with you and will offer these things.
