Joseph Asher Diamonds
Natural Diamond Options
These diamonds are ‘colorless’ (FGH color grade) which means they will have a crisp white, bold appearance.
The diamonds used in the Candlelight Collection are considered ‘near colorless’ (JKL color grade), characterized by very faint body color which gives them a soft, warm, and romantic appearance.
Lab Created Option
These diamonds are created in a laboratory and are physically and chemically identical to those that are mined in the ground. Our High-Tech collection share the same ‘colorless’ grade as the Starlight Collection.
More About Diamonds
Understanding your Options
- The cut of a diamond refers to how well the diamond has been cut by the diamond cutter. There are 58 facets on each round brilliant diamond. Each of these facets is carefully measured and meticulously fashioned to unlock the beauty within. A well cut diamond will take in light from the outside, bounce the light beams around within the crystal, and return the light to explode from the top of the diamond in a brilliant scintillating balance of color and white light.
- Every single diamond in the Joseph Asher Collection is carefully chosen for its pristine proportions and exacting cut.
- All of the rings and pendants in the Joseph Asher Collection are slightly included, (SI1-SI2 clarity). Inclusions are present within the diamond, however they will show no visible inclusions to the naked eye. Typically these inclusions are noticeable only by a trained diamond grader and analyzed under 10x magnification with a jeweler’s loupe or microscope.
