It took DH a long time to find the right Asscher cut (aka Square Emerald when shopping). It was also hard for me to find good pictures of this cut. Many jewelers showed him a different cut or “hybrid” cuts to try and make a sell. An educated buyer will get the best deal, so hopefully mine can be of help to someone.
My e-ring – Asscher cut 2+ ct. in a four-prong Cartier 1895-style* platinum setting. I may want to change this in the future, but being as indecisive as I am, a solitaire works well for now.
My wedding band – Cartier 3-diamond platinum band.
DH’s wedding band – Tungsten, the current metal of choice it seems with the men. I do love the sophisticated tone and smooth masculinity of the ring. And at under $200 was well under budget!
* Cartier-style because Cartier didn’t carry any Asscher cuts and wouldn’t sell the setting alone.
