I got my asscher back last week in its new setting! :love: I previously had a 1.5mm pave shank and felt that it was too delicate so I had the stone set in an identical setting but with a 2.1mm shank. Anyway, I feel that asschers and EC's get a tough rap when it comes to fire and brilliance so I wanted to show just what these pretties are capable of! :Up_to_something: AND of course invite all of my fellow asscher and EC lovers to post pics of theirs as well!!

OK with that said I am still a newbie around here and apologize in advance for not knowing how to post mulitple pics in one post, and I'll apologize again for the number of pictures that I'm going to post......but I'm soooo in love with this ring and you all said that I could shamelessly show it off! :naughty:

Oh yeah my specs are...

carat weight 1.01
clarity VVS1
color I
measurements 5.76 x 5.44 x 3.66
l/w 1.06 (tech. an EC not an asscher but still quite square)
flouresence none
table 66
depth 67.3

the setting has .32 of .02 melee although a few of the pics show the diamond in my old setting which had .20 of .01 melee

OK here we go....

It must be blinding in-person :sun:


Can we get some non-fire shots to show the faceting? I couldn't find a pic in your post history and I'd love to see!

It is a lovely stone :love:

Try reducing the file size - I haven't yet figured out what it is on PS, but my own files are usually too large. There's no daily quota or anything like that :))

wow, everything that I try to do just tells me that the file is invalid. I've never seen that before. I'll still be obsessing over it tomorrow so I'll try again then. ;))

Whaaa! Its not working again! I'll try to get some better pics up tomorrow. In the meantime, I would LOVE to see everyone elses Asschers and Emerald Cuts! I haven't seen a thread just for these particular cuts, but I have seen alot of posts asking about them. And like I said at the beginning of the thread, I think that alot of jewlers steer people away from them, or cause them to have second thoughts by saying that they just don't have any sparkle or fire. I was almost scared off, and now I am so happy that I wasn't. I wish that I could get a good pic of the big bold flashes that it shoots off. Thats what I was trying to get when I got all the fire shots. I'm not sure why its so difficult to capture. If anyone has any tips on how to get a good shot let me know please! I've been using a sony cybershot with macro.

Anyway, please post YOUR pics. Maybe I could change the name of this thread or start a new one so that ECs get some well deserved attention. I hope that I haven't overlooked a thread, if I have I apologize and would love to view it!

So come on everyone and show me YOUR pics!!!! :appl:
