Two extraordinarily precious Asscher-cut diamonds totaling 9.95 carats dazzle in these classic earrings. The GIA-certified stones are beautifully matched, weighing 5.02 carats and 4.93 carats, respectively, and each with F color and VS2 clarity. They are also graded as having very good and good symmetry, respectively, a key component of a successful Asscher cut. Set in platinum, these diamonds are among the finest of their type.
True Asscher-cut diamonds are uniquely difficult to find, as very few stones feature this highly complex step-cut design. Asschers have more facets than any other diamond shape — 72 in total — so cutters often choose more conventional cuts. Finding a diamond that is suited to the cut is also complicated, as a stone must have exceptional symmetry in order for the unique, tapered Asscher pattern to neatly form. Therefore, finding one Asscher-cut diamond that has the perfect combination of carat weight and quality is extremely difficult. To find two that are so perfectly matched in size, color, clarity and symmetry is exceptional.Download the GIA Certification
