CARAT of London 2ct Baguette Asscher Cut in white Gold

Product Ref: 6196

RRP: £265.00

Price: £245.00


Set in 9K white gold, this shape is nearly identical to the emerald-cut, except that it is square. Also, this shape has a pavilion that is cut with rectangular facets in the same style as the emerald-cut. The original Asscher cut was very popular in the early 1900's, before the Great Depression and the invention of the modern diamond sawing machine made it uneconomical to cut. Its beauty, however, is breathtaking and thus this cut has been revived and improved with the addition of 16 extra facets to add even more brilliance and life to this outstanding cut.

Founded in 2003 by Englishman Scott Thompson, the concept of Carat is one of timeless glamour and the charm and allure of a bygone era mixed with modern wearability. Carat jewellery represents the brand philosophy that pieces should be chosen rather than invested in, and worn rather than kept locked up in a safe. The brand delivers a modern take on classic, vintage inspired styles, and rewards the customer with affordable luxury.

Carat have achieved this by creating its own unique gemstones, aiming to design the best alternative to a diamond one can find, as nothing sparkles quite like a diamond. They created a diamond simulant which boasts optical characteristics so close to that of a diamond that hundreds of jewellers have agreed they have difficulty telling Carat stones from naturals. These stones are extremely hard, measuring close to the hardness of Sapphire and Ruby, and are available in multiple colours and cuts including Princess, Round Brilliant, Cushion and Emerald. The stones typically yield a clarity of “IF” (internally flawless). Each stage in the preparation for the creation of the stimulant stones is carried out by hand, from pre-forming and faceting, to polishing and setting. It is these personal touches that ensure customers that Carat workmanship is second to none.

Carat jewellery is loved by celebrities all over the world including Lisa Snowdon, Michelle Williams, Kara Tointen and the cast of Gossip Girl, which serves to make the brand ever more popular amongst the general public.
