Q&A: Looking for Asscher Cut 1.2-1.5 Carat Diamond

The following is a real email conversation between The Diamond Pro and a reader just like you who contacted us. Personal information is always removed. Learn from these posts, or contact us yourself to get free personalized help.

Please help me chose an asscher stone 1.2-1.5 carets in the price range up to 6,200.00 not including the setting. I am 99% sure on the six brilliant diamond engagement ring in 18kt or platinum.

Thanks for your help. I love your site and all the things I (think) I learned. I did pick out #1316061 what do you think?

Thanking you in advance for your time Ira!

I’m so sorry for the delay in writing you back. I’ve been a bit under the weather lately. Anyway, I took a look for you, and I think there are two stones out there that are better value than the stone you suggested. Here’s the links:

The only real reason is that they’re both higher in clarity, yet their prices are basically the same. Have a look and let me know what you think!

I hope you are feeling better.

Thank you for your help in choosing a diamond. The one I wanted and was on my “wish list” and you recommended was sold this afternoon.

May I ask why do you do this, help people on the internet? It is so nice of you. I learned so much from the internet and you.

The diamond I wanted that you chose and I had on my list was sold. I am still looking. You don’t have to help me but I would like to wish you a Happy Hanukkah! By your name I hope that is an appropriate wish for you!

I did check out the diamonds you chose and they looked awesome. I also looked at #: 1336821, and a few others. I hope my future husband moves faster on my new choice!

I wish you good health and happiness!

If you’re buying it with a ring, then don’t forget to apply the TAD0611 coupon code to get 10% off the setting.

Yes, happy hanukkah is appropriate! Thank you very much. It’s not just my name, I live in Israel as well 🙂

As for why I do this, I received this quesiton so often, I wrote an article answering the question:

I hope you are enjoying your holiday and feeling well!

Well, I need your help again. I really want an asscher cut diamond and it should be a good one. My problem is I want the largest stone I can have in an asscher without it looking crappy. I read that the color of an asscher has to be great . The price point is 8,000.00 for the total cost. My setting is about $1,100 white gold, $1,600 platinum. I love JamesAllen because I can view the stones.

What do you think ?

Lets see what we can pull together for you.

1) After applying the TAD0611 coupon code, your settings prices go down to 990 and 1440.

2) That leaves us between 6560 and 7010 for the diamond.

3) G color really is totally fine for an asscher. You cannot see any yellow whatsoever in a G color stone.

4) Here’s what I like in addition to the others:

Well I am happy to say we were able to order one of your original picks (https://www.jamesallen.com/diamonds/G-VS1-Ideal-Cut-Asscher-Diamond-1332568.asp?a_aid=dmnd1357) as it became available again! I chose the Common Prong Ten Brilliant Diamond Engagement Ring in platinum.

Now I received your email and am doubting the pick because these stones are higher on color scale. I checked them out and I can see flaws though in the center of the stones so all & all I hope we selected the best quality stone.

Thank you so much for your help and your coupon code.

I can’t wait to see it! I hope it will be as beautiful as the online pictures.

Thanks again, enjoy your holidays

That stone looks amazing. You’re going to be very pleased, I’m sure! Please let me know what you think when it arrives!

Thanks Ira. I will let you know after it arrives! I am so excited!

Q: We changed the stone to the one below. I researched a bit more and think I made a better choice. Wondering if you think the same if you have the time to check it out. i am so excited to get my ring with a F stone! OMG! 😉

1.21 Carat F-SI1 Ideal Cut Asscher Diamond

Specifications for Item #: 1336814

Did you have the people at JA confirm it’s eye clean? If so, then that’s fantastic!

No I did not ask if it was “eye clean” I didn’t think the customer service reps knew anything; I thought they just take orders. Oh well, I hope and pray it is what I viewed on the screen. If not it will have to be returned. And I hope it makes it here for Christmas!

I’ll let you know 🙂

Ok, just know that SI1s on asscher cuts are usually visible to the naked eye. Good luck!
