I'm now in the process of designing a ring for my new Asscher. I was always of the school of thought that the corners of step-cuts should be protected by prongs or bezels, but after playing around with my loose stone, I couldn't help but notice that a lot of lovely fire comes off the corners. If by covering them up with prongs, am I losing out on sparke? Obviously the case with bezel set but should I aim for a single claw, or double claw that sits close to the corners but let enough light to dance with the edges? Or am I just imagining things and covering the corners up won't make much difference? Thanks in advance!
