Asscher-Cut Diamonds

Square-cut or Asscher-cut, diamonds are a popular diamond shape that are characterized by a step cut. This cut results in less light return when compared to their more brilliant alternatives, but offers a more vintage appeal. Square-cut diamonds feature cropped corners, which give it a unique, almost octagonal shape. Square-cut diamonds became very popular during the 1920s and as a result, are a desirable diamond cut for a vintage looking engagement ring.

Pear-Shaped Diamonds

Pear-Shaped Diamonds are typically a combination of a round and a marquise shape. A quality Pear diamond ought to have very good or excellent symmetry, and the point of the diamond should be in line with the apex of the rounded end. A pear-shaped diamond should be set with a prong at the point of the stone – this ensures that most flaws and inclusions will be covered by a prong. Pear diamonds typically contain 58 facets, which allows light to pass through the diamond much in the way light passes through a round diamond.
