We cut our princess to optimize for sheer
whereas most natural princess diamonds are cut
to save as much weight as possible. This is
a tradeoff between cutting the stone smaller and
thus more beautiful, vs. leaving it fatter and
able to handle light properly.
The results speak for themselves based on our
many happy Asha®
"I just wanted to say that I purchased a 2.5 princess cut stone February 2006, after much research about your company and other online companies.
No one can compare to the quality, brilliance and realistic look of your stones! When I recently had my stone reset, I advised the jeweler that the stone was not real. He was floored as he stated that my princess cut was the most prettiest and most flawless stone he had ever seen!
I will definitely purchase more from you. Thanks for having such quality products at a reasonable price! Satisfied customer from the South!"
cut is called a square/rectangular modified
brilliant in GIA grading reports. Unlike most
are correct princess cuts, 76 facets, the same as natural diamond.
princess cut simulants are
cut via a modified radiant,
rather than a true princess cut, which also is an easy sign for
knowledgeable eyes to suspect it is a simulant as most diamonds are not cut
In order to ensure that our princess cut was produced as ideally as possible, we asked David Atlas, inventor of the AGA-CERT diamond cut classes, to review our Asha princess.
The full report is available
here, but the takeaway summary was this:
"I don't think anyone could do a better job on a princess cut and I have no cutting suggestions.
It looks better than most princess cut diamonds as it is.
The three diamonds it was compared to total $15,518 at wholesale cost.
I doubt anyone can tell which is which unless they are paying for one of the four."
