Diamonds a sparkly, dazzling, gift from nature, captivating us since centuries and people all over the world have been enchanted by the mysterious allure of the Diamond!!
While the round brilliant is always a classic favourite, fancy shaped diamonds are also popular, particularly for those looking for a different diamond vibe!!
Beyond the fancy diamond shapes, like princess, oval, emerald and even heart shapes, there are really different cuts and shapes popping up from time to time.
Thanks, to speciality jewellers like William Goldberg, for creating their own patented diamond cuts to make the designs more exclusive and rare for their clients.
One such is the ASHOKA CUT®, which is essentially a modified cushion-cut, with a rectangular shape and rounded corners. First introduced by William Goldberg in 1999, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has recognized its distinctiveness by issuing a federal trademark registration covering the configuration of the stone. It is exclusive. It is extraordinary. And it cannot be duplicated.

The original stone after which it was named, was a 41.37 carat, D color, an internally flawless diamond that was legendary for its beauty, unique cut, and size. It is essentially a modified cushion-cut, with a rectangular shape and rounded corners
