    Can you please post the rest of the specs from the cert? Carat weight? Depth %? Table%? Girdle? Culet? Crown and pavilion angles, if you have them? And which lab, if any, graded this stone, and how much does the vendor want for it? You'll get more responses this way. [​IMG]

    Hi AsscherLover.

    The stone described is a very shallow square emerald cut with a large table and a low crown. It's what dealers refer to as a "spread", or "spready" stone, and is not an Asscher Cut, nor a generic Asscher.

    It should look large for it's carat weight, and could possibly be pretty in it's own right, but technically ranks below average in it's proportions.

    The characteristics of an Asscher are a high crown, small table, slightly bowed pavilion, slightly deeper than average stone, with a wide "windmill" pattern reflection in the midst of a "house of mirrors" square pattern going deep.

    A good article on the Asscher can be found at the following URL address, written by David Wolf of Just Appraisers out of NYC:

    I have paid 2749 for this stone to be set into an 18k white gold setting with 2 .20 baguetees and a matching band with 3 .20 baguettes, did I get a fair price for the set...it is being delivered tomorrow. I know it isnt a true asscher, one day perhaps...

    Hi,
    I would be a tad concerned about the thin girdle in conjunction with the shallow depth...could be susceptible to chipping. Make sure you get it insured and are covered for loss in value due to damage just in case. Cindy

    Well, if you've already bought it and can't return it, then just enjoy it. It's never a good idea to second guess yourself if you can't change things.

    I think you should have asked what we thought Before you purchased it. Rich gave you the straight word. Enjoy your diamond if it is yours. If you can return it, you might give that some thought.
