A Beautiful Choice for the Classic Bride - Asscher Diamond Engagement Rings

A woman never forgets her engagement ring. A symbol of the promise of ever lasting love, commitment and loyalty, it is one of the most precious pieces of jewellery she will ever own. People grow up dreaming of the perfect wedding. The beautiful dress, a lovely venue, the person of your dreams and a gleaming ring on your finger proclaiming your betrothed status to the world.

You have your classic brides who love the tradition, the timeless elegant wedding and a look to match including the outfit, the jewellery and the aesthetic for the day. The love for vintage has bloomed all over the world and everything from movies to events to  yes, weddings have been touched by the hand of vintage nostalgia. The old world glamour and charm of vintage jewellery cannot be denied and it is a perfect fit for that classic bride who wants the tradition, the romance and the beauty that sometimes only the not so new can provide. When it comes to diamond rings for the vintage and classic style inclined woman an ideal choice are asscher diamonds, engagement rings with a precious gem cut in this style are a sight to behold.

The asscher cut diamond was the brainchild of the Asscher brothers from Holland and was first produced in the year 1902. They were renowned at the time for cutting the stunning Cullinan diamond, which was the biggest rough stone in the world at over 3000 carats. Becoming extremely popular in the 1920s, the asscher cut diamond had a re-emergence in the early 2000s. This beautiful cut is often seen in antique and vintage stores carrying fine jewellery. Its old world appeal has made it immensely popular today. It adds that special sparkle of antique glamour that few other cuts of diamonds provide as eloquently.  It is no wonder then that asscher diamond engagement rings are seen gracing the hands of stars and celebrities both in real and reel life.

The asscher diamond, similar to the emerald cut with its squarish shape and cropped corners. These corners also tend to make the diamond look a little octogonal in shape. You will find slightly rectangular varieties as well, although a square is the more traditional asscher design. With a higher crown and larger facets, asscher diamonds have a beautiful brilliance entirely their own. They make for a dramatic choice when an usual emerald cut, does not seem unique enough!

With a touch of the old and modifications today of the new, asshcer diamonds pop beautifully on bands since they are placed elevated and still maintain their squarish shape on the setting. They make for eye catching solitaire rings and also look beautiful when set with other precious stones like rubies and sapphires. The vintage look of such a gem makes it ideal also for a more vintage style band with a little bit of work on it. Whatever you choose, it definitely stands out!

When purchasing an asscher diamond ring, check for the length to width ratio of the stone. Also as always with diamonds consider the 4 C's – cut, carar, clarity and colour.
