are you still thinking about the pattern in YOUR stone? I would recommend posting pictures of your stone with like "question about an asscher" in the subject and see what storm and others have to say....Date: 4/11/2007 1:25:28 PM
Is this a reflection on the EC in the Leon M. setting? Is this just the way some EC''s respond to certain lighting situations?
asschers dont have bowties.. they have contrast patterns and contrast patterns is what makes an asscher an asscher.Date: 4/11/2007 3:15:24 PM
Well, here''s how it went-- when I bought the stone I thought it was sooo beautiful--h, vs1 (large table--but nice spread) without a hint of detectable yellow to me. I saw the shadowing in certain lights, and thought it was a very pretty optical illusion. Then i started reading all the posts about asschers and started getting paranoid ''do I have a woofer and not realize it?'' ''is the shadow a dreaded bowtie?'' So, I think a little knowlege is dangerous in my case!

I have to agree with Deco, especially after seeing both pictures. I strongly believe the 2nd picture has head obstruction, hence more shadowing showing in the center. Just like the stepcut ECs, the look will change as the diamond is tilted, and what you are seeing is very normal. As Deco mentioned in her post, it is possible that you don't like this effect and it may mean that this cut is not suited to your taste. Personally, I think the cut looks FAB.
