It’s probably the most expensive piece of jewelry that you will ever own. It’s what lets the world know that you are engaged. As the visible evidence of your engagement, your engagement ring should make a statement.
If your style and taste tend to be a bit unconventional and the customary diamond engagement ring is not your style, you can find an engagement ring that is both gorgeous and totally unique. There are many dazzling non-diamond engagement rings available that sparkle just as bright as diamonds. But, if it is a diamond that you prefer, then asscher-cut diamond engagement rings are an awe-inspiring alternative to the more popular round, princess and cushion-cut rings.
Here are 5 asscher-cut diamond engagement rings, from Ritani:
Adored for their distinctive square shape, asscher-cut diamonds are a striking alternative to the more popular round, princess and cushion-cut stones. The asscher cut’s step-cut facets and large, open table emphasize diamond clarity and color – with extraordinary effect.
The asscher-cut’s antique silhouette makes it a wise choice for those looking for a diamond engagement ring that stands out from the crowd. Elizabeth Taylor, Gwyneth Paltrow and Zooey Deschanel are just some of the famous women who have worn asscher-cut diamonds over the years.
Here are five unique ring styles that capture the fancy diamond cut’s brilliance.
For a contemporary twist, this design features tapered baguettes that emphasize the asscher-cut’s geometric appeal. A plain band allows the center diamond to draw focus, with its eye-catching ‘X’ table and cropped corners.
This micropavé halo engagement ring complements the asscher-cut diamond’s cropped corners, for a style that’s bursting with vintage charm. More micropavé diamonds adorn the band, accented with delicate milgrain beading.
A split shank draws the eye to the center of your stunning asscher-cut diamond. French-set diamonds bring further brilliance – a counterpoint to the clear, large table of this fancy cut. This ring blends classic and vintage details for a look that’s wholly unique.
A subtle parting in this ring’s band meets your asscher-cut center diamond, highlighting its bold angles. An embellishment of micropavé diamonds across the band allows brilliance to reflect from all angles.
It’s easy to see why this French-set ‘V’ halo is one of Ritani’s most popular designs. While its classic brilliance complements a variety of diamond cuts, we particularly love its effect as a setting for step-cut diamonds, such as the asscher and emerald shapes. The elegant halo accentuates, rather than hides, these diamonds’ distinguishing silhouettes.
