The unapologetically elegant Asscher cut first rose to popularity during the roaring 1920s, when the world embraced modernity and dynamism. The Asscher cut is the square cousin of the emerald cut, a step cut, which provokes flashes of light from a distinctive cropped square shape. Step right up (get it?) and take a look at some of our favorite Asscher cut center stone engagement rings.
This first engagement ring could be an ode to the Asscher cut gem. The exquisite moissanite center stone is turned on its cropped corner in a kite setting, enhancing the kaleidoscopic effect of the cut. The rose gold bezel hugs all edges of the Asscher cut stone, embracing its unique shape. Moissanite accents embellish the winding gold band, which almost looks as if it has been twisted by the power of the Asscher cut maze itself.
If you go bold with cut, why not go bold with color as well? We love the blazing orange of this Asscher cut citrine, especially paired with deep red ruby side stones and a glittering trail of pavé diamonds. The two-tone vibe is strong in this ring, with yellow and white gold entwined through the twisted band.
The roaring 20s rise again with this fantastically bold moissanite and blue sapphire bridal set! There is nothing subtle about the flash and sparkle coming off this handsome Asscher cut moissanite surrounded in a dazzling moissanite halo. The bezel set around the center stone creates the illusion of a floating halo, and two deep blue sapphire side stones round out the engagement ring. Combined with the pavé white gold wedding bands that add the illusion of a second halo, this set is a feast for the eyes.
Our next Asscher cut engagement ring is a moissanite and rose gold beauty that weaves gently flowing curves together with the bold, repeating lines of the step cut stone. The large square gem sits between two round cut moissanite side stones adding an extra touch of razzle dazzle. A dainty rose gold band bonds the three stones together with a sweeping trellis setting, bringing softness and flow to the ring’s profile.
We wouldn’t blame you for getting lost in the mirror maze effect of the Asscher cut stone’s repeating step pattern — especially with this mesmerizing engagement ring! The hypnotic geometry of the Asscher cut is only amplified by the deep mystical purple of the amethyst center stone, and magnified again by the echoing shape of the yellow gold band. We’re dazed and confused in the best kind of way!
This Asscher cut moissanite center stone is bold and beautiful, and it only seemed right to give it a stunning frame! A dazzling halo of moissanite accents of varying sizes resembles the points and curves of an antique style frame. Oh yes, this Asscher cut engagement ring is a vintage inspired delight!
X marks the spot! We can’t get over how beautifully this glassy Asscher cut morganite displays the captivating X shape the cut is known for. This blushing gem sits on a yellow gold band intricately engraved with swirling vines and leaves. The band gently tapers to a point where it meets the center stone, as if it’s leading us to promised treasure.
