So Exceptional That It Has Been Patented: the Ashoka® Cut
This cut, which was patented by the renowned New York diamond dealer William Goldberg, is known as one of the most unusual of its kind.
Fewer than one percent of all the rough diamonds in the world have the potential to be transformed into an Ashoka® cut. It is basically a modified emerald cut with a rectangular shape and rounded corners, however, because of its 62 facets the diamond appears 30% larger than an emerald-cut diamond of the same carat size.
Connoisseurs appreciate it because thanks to its extremely varied angles it generates additional brilliance and light reflexes to create a striking effect.
An Encounter on Fifth Avenue and a Brilliant Idea
This initial meeting let to a friendship and to the idea of creating a Wempe line based on the Ashoka® cut. It’s a cut that is meant to bring joy to the eye and the spirit alike. “As my father used to say, the perfect diamond is the one that makes you completely happy,” says Eve Goldberg.
