Cutting-Edge Diamond Fashion

By: Jeffrey M. Bertman Graduate GemologistThe round brilliant-cut diamond may be the most popular diamond shape, but it is hardly the only one. Women with a strong desire to wear a diamond that reflects their unique style may be drawn to fancy shapes such as the Asscher Cut. This modified version of the Emerald Cut is more brilliant, has a smaller table (top facet), a deeper pavilion (bottom portion of the diamond beneath the girdle), and bigger step facets. The shape of a 57-facet Asscher Cut diamond also tends more toward the square than rectangular. This bold cut, which is best utilized on highquality diamonds, was featured on “Sex and the City” and was the engagement ring of choice for both Reese Witherspoon and Kate Beckinsale. What diamond shape a woman prefers can say a lot about her personality – is she traditional and conservative, or flirty and adventurous?
