by asha » Oct 2, 2001 Hello, My wedding rings were stolen. In the process of dealing with the insurance company, I was told that instead of having the radiant cut I thought i had, i really may have had a rare cut. The source of the confusion was my EGL certificate, which listed the stone as a "octagon modified rectangular cushion cut". After several jewelers in their replacement program expressed their confusion, the insurance company called the GIA for an answer. They were told the best they could guess is that my stone was an "Asher" or "Baron" cut. I have never heard of either of these. My stone looked like a radiant as far as I could tell, and my husband did not knowingly purchase a 'rare' cut. Any opinions? Thank you!
