Studio Photo: Version 5 - 2.75ct Asha H&A Round Brilliant

"I just wanted to let you know that we recently purchased a 1.5 carat Asha round Version 5 and took it to the LA Jewelry Mart to find a setting.
Three certified gemologists did not know it was a simulant, and even when I told one of them he wanted me to prove it!

  • You will be pleased or a full refund will be promptly issued:
    See our 40 day, any reason satisfaction guarantee here - you must be thrilled with your
    purchase, or we will gladly issue you a refund.
  • Lower pricing!  In order to answer our customers #1 request of lowering the 
    price of Asha without sacrificing quality, (and in opposite of Moissanite's recent price hike) 
    we have introduced an additional 25% price reduction due to manufacturing 
    efficiencies gained by our increased volume of rounds, and by our
    no longer offering the lifetime limited warranty.  
    Customers who purchased before May 24, 2005 are still covered by the original Asha lifetime warranty.   
    Purchases from 5/24/05 and forward still have the 14 day return policy with no lifetime warranty (but lower purchase price).  
  • Learn more about Hearts and Arrows (H&A) cuts - Heart and Arrows, Ideal cut and standard round brilliant all have the same 
    number of facets (57) - however, the difference lies in the angles, proportions, and symmetry of the facets.  
    These difference result in widely differing brilliance (light return), with H&A offering the best light return in exchange 
    for significantly more weight lost during cutting, and substantially more cutting time due to the precision required.  Learn more here.

Wondering what size would work best for you?  Here are two links that can help in that decision:

 

News:  Volume sales of our 4mm (.25ct) have exploded.  As a result, we are sold out until December.  However, due to the increase in volume, we have achieved significant economies of scale savings  and will be passing those along with the restock.  Pricing for 4mm will be $36 (previously $48) per stone with the next restock.

Version 6 Asha (US Patent Pending) is now available for most sizes.  We now only produce version 6. 
Details on the new version are here.
