The Ashoka cut diamond - a classic diamond cut, the Ashoka, based on the famous diamond of the same name.
The original Ashoka diamond, a 41.37carat D flawless diamond named after the Buddhist warrior-emperor Ashoka Maurya, was mined in the Golconda region of southern India.
Due to its unique cut and exceptional beauty, it has attained legendary status as it has passed through the hands of countless buyers through the years.
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND CUTTING ISSUES
The Ashoka cut diamond is a modified version of the antique cushion cut diamond, with a rectangular girdle outline and rounded corners that capture and disperse light to create a strong brilliance.
This diamond cut displays 62 facets. The rough needed to cut the stones is extra long, and weight loss varies according to the specific piece.
The scarcity of extra-long rough on the market today makes it difficult to widely distribute the cut at this time.
Diamond is the hardest naturally occurring substance known to man—the only thing that can cut a diamond is another diamond.
