@stillwaiting88:  Wow, that sounds like a beautiful combination–I absolutely adore rose gold! I am sure you could find a setting you love, order the Asha, and have a local jeweler set the stone. My mom purchased the elongated antique cushion, and had it set in a simple white gold setting. It looked amazing! What shape of center stone are you leaning toward?

@stillwaiting88:  I’d tell them about the stone beforehand, and give them a print out of the nature of the stone.

@stillwaiting88:  Thanks! I’ll have to have her take a pic so I can post it one day! πŸ™‚ Princess cut stones are so gorgeous, they have those amazing flashes of iciness! I actually chose a square cushion because I couldn’t decide between a round or princess stone!

As far as setting your stone, you are not mistaken at all. There is some truth to this. It would be wise to consult the jeweler you choose on the matter, and ask if he or she feels comfortable setting your Asha stone. I think as long as the jeweler knows and makes a note in his/her files that your stone is an Asha, then the appropriate precautions will be taken πŸ™‚ I say to avoid a chain jeweler (such as Zales, Kay), just because more attention will be given to your ring if it doesn’t go through many different hands.

Wow, you are going to have one heck of a gorgeous ring!! You’ll have to post a photo of it when you receive it!

@stillwaiting88:  Any time, doll! Oh, I found a photo of a ring that is identical to my mom’s (in case I don’t get a chance to see her in the next little bit, we live about an hour away from one another and she’s NEVER on the computer to post pics, haha) The only difference is that hers is a 2 carat stone, and this one from Pricescope is 3.5 carats, I’m thinking. Aren’t Asha stones just too gorgeous for their own good?!

@stillwaiting88:  Isn’t it flippin’ PHENOMENAL?! Ahhh, now I’m gonna have to hunt mom’s ring down and make a video if I can’t find one on YouTube or Vimeo! baaahahaha! I’m obsessed with the thing!!

I’ve got a 1 carat solitaire on a size 5.5 finger, and that sucker looks BIG on my hand! Your Asha will look good in any size, no doubt!

@stillwaiting88:  To be honest, I think rose gold will be about the same price as yellow or white gold. I’ve heard that 14k gold is harder and more scratch-resistant than 18k gold, plus it’s cheaper! πŸ™‚ 

Excited for you x 100000000000!!

@gardenroses:  WOW amazing you totally can’t tell its a diamond coated CZ!  How long has your mom had hers?

Are Ashas and Ziamonds the same thing?

@Lupe V Bachmeier:  It’s scary how much it resembles a mined diamond, isn’t it?! I think I may develop an Asha obsession…I’m now scoping out the web for Asha porn!!! hahahaaa!!!

From what I know, the difference between an Asha stone and a Ziamond is that Asha stones have an amorphous diamond coating that the Z lacks. Apparently, this amorphous layer penetrates the surface of the stone, thus BTD giving the Asha the title “hybrid diamond simulant”. The core of both is CZ, so chemically, they are most likely identical (give or take an additive). They are both hand-cut, which IMO makes all the difference.
