ERM115:  I’m always impressed with the ladies who manageto get clear shots of their rings showing all the detail. I’m a rubbish photographer and never manage to do this ring justice. 

Regardless, here’s my asscher.

sporting: Well, I didn’t… But now I do! Ha!

is this what you were thinking re:side view?

 

?

Please, please ignore the scrotty polish. I’m going for my weekly mani tomorrow. 

And I tried a head on shot once agin. And I now realize that the dark shadow shows up in the pics because my iPhone is black! Duh!

Hope these help!

I think your ring is beautiful and unique.  I love the sapphires flanking the center stone.    Thanks for sharing the photos.

sporting:  thanks! And as I can take no credit for it, I’ll pass along the compliment. 

 

Are you considering an asscher? If you take the plunge, please post pics!

ERM115:  That is the one drawback- asschers do face up smaller so do take that into consideration. However, I think you get an awful lot in exchange as you’ll see fewer asschers that are lower in clarity, color or cut. Due to the size of the window, the cut almost demands you have a very high quality diamond. It really can’t work- and give you the flash you’d want- otherwise. I just think they’re incredible and I am so happy to wear it. I get a ton of comments on how unique it is and I also like that I don’t see them very often at all. 

But here’s some photographic food for thought… We got engaged in October and I was stunned with the ring he designed all on his own. The center is 4.5 carats (my finger size is omewhere just north of size 4 due to my crazy boney knuckles.) And in December my fiancé got me 5 carat diamond earrings- 2.5 carts each. (Let’s not discuss how nuts he is… He’s so lovely… I’ve been advised to just enjoy it.) 

It was immediately clear to me that while my asscher is gorgeous, if you want to maximize finger coverage and you’re not going to go super big on carat size, umm….asscher ain’t where it’s at. Lol! Not that that’s the end all for everyone– to each their own– but if it’s important to you then you should think carefully. Lol! As you can see on the hand pic, a 2.5 carat round faces up pretty well next to the 4.5 carat asscher. The stone in the ring is definitely bigger, but the round really holds its own. 

Hope that helps. And I hope this doesn’t totally turn you  off the cut. Asschers really are unique and gorgeous.

Maleny_Bride:  love that you posted a pic with the band. I’m still trying to figure out what might work well with mine and your set looks great. Beautiful solitare and The band compliments it really well. 

Miss Mauverick:  your ring is stunning, too! And you take a great picture. I need to develop skills as good as tiers.
