Hi all,
Hope it's ok to post a MMD in SMTB, but wanted to share my new piece with the broader forum.

Jon recently created this new asscher cut, and I got the first one :)

Had him set it in a setting I own with NSEW prongs, and i love it!

Also for the sake of full disclosure and bc I think it's important for buyers to have all the info before buying, I do want to say one slightly negative thing.

Because of how the stone is cut (aka a combo of traditional "steps" in the center and sharper angles similar to the octavia on the outside), there can be almost a "black out" effect in the 2nd/3rd step in some lights. Usually this is in indoor lighting at specific angles when the steps are reflecting black from my head blocking the light source (I think).

Pics here:

I talked to @Dr_Diesel (aka amazing king of asschers) yesterday and today, and he told me something that really resonated. He noted that the stone I got is optimized for brightness (and omg it is so dang bright!!!), but that there are always trade offs with asschers.

My point here is that I think asschers always have pros and cons, and the most important thing is for the buyer to find something that ticks all of the boxes *for them * despite any small drawbacks.

For me, after spending the day with the ring, this does tick all my boxes despite the fact that there are some lights in which the look isnt my favorite. The stone more than makes up for it in brightness, insane fire, and huge flashes. But I also want to be totally transparent so that other buyers can decide for themselves.

Sometimes I think on PS we only speak about all positives or all negatives (rather than pros and cons), so I think it can be helpful to talk openly about both the things we love and things we dont.

Congratulations @lovedogs!! She is a beauty and the simple setting allows her to shine. Thank you for sharing about the times when that step goes dark. You’re right that people should know and decide if it’s for them. Im so happy for you that you’ve found an asscher you love.

So glad this ring got a SMTB thread!

Thank you for the fantastic photos, as well as your detailed assessment of the pros and cons of this particular asscher cut. It still takes my breath away, but I'm glad to know of the "black out" effect in certain lighting.
