Welcome to PS


I am not an expert on Asschers, you need Storm as he is great with them, but to my eyes that is a fantastic looking diamond and the vendor does seem to sell some incredible diamonds of this shape, Jon at GOG is well versed and experienced with them. Some here have bought Asschers from him in the past and have been delighted with them, Kaleigh bought one from Jon I believe.

Thanks for the feedback hopefully I hear positive things about the stone. To me it looks good, but want some reassurance before I pull the trigger.

Good Old Gold has been great to work with so far. Glad people recommended them.

I''m not an expert, but I have been through the asscher buying experience - I bought mine from WF.

So my 2 cents - the symmetry looks a little off with this stone. To me, it is quite noticeable. I checked the stats and indeed the symmetry is "Good". You have to decide if this is acceptable to you.

nope I wouldn''t... too many pattern symmetry issues and the culet area is miss cut.

thanks. I''ll see if they have anything else they want to show me. Any winning suggestions out there somewhere now? Looking for a stone between 5-6k

The symmetry does look off but that could be the angle of the stone or the picture, personally I think the windmills are too wide.

Can you clarify what seems wrong with the symmetry?
Hi asschersearrcher.

If you can''t see how the symmetry is off, maybe this diamond is good for you. If you can''t see it, it won''t bother you.


What I see is the square patterns look out-of-plumb. It looks kinda twisted or crooked or something - it''s subtle though.
