Great jewelers through the ages have struggled with how to improve on perfection. It wasn’t enough to just shape and polish. A cut needed personality and style. And, such a cut was perfected in 1902 by the Asscher brothers of Amsterdam. The brothers had already cut the 530 carat Cullinan diamond for King Edward VII. So people paid attention when Abraham and Joseph introduced their variation on the emerald cushion cut. Their octagon-shaped, stepped cut was enormously popular during the 1920s and has enjoyed a resurgence as an A-list accessory on Hollywood’s hottest celebrities.
In celebration of this ingenious cut, we present the Asscher Cut Earrings, sparkling with the dazzling brilliance of Stauer’s exclusive diamond alternative, DiamondAura®. Mined diamonds almost always have small imperfections. The Ultimate Diamond Alternative®, DiamondAura does not. Weighing in at 4 1/4 carats, the earrings deliver a lot of sparkle for a little price. For vintage-inspired indulgence, these beauties definitely make the cut.
