Aset Tool images for different diamond cuts

Aset Tool Images

The more Ideal the cut and symmetry, the more Color! a poor cut will have less colour = Simple ..

As I mentioned in my other articles on the Ideal Scope and the Aset Tool, neither are the ideal way in which to determine a well cut Diamond. They each have their place. The list below is of many differing diamond cuts and their optical variations. Please don’t follow these to the letter, all Diamonds will vary. Inclusions can have a big impact on what is seen. 

Colors seen and what they mean;

  • Red – Red is good. Well cut stones will have alot of red showing their accurate symmetry
  • Blue – Blue is good.  Any blue should be symmetrical (arrows) and bright not faded.
  • Green – Green is still good but not much should be seen. What is seen should be bright and not washed out.
  • Black – Black is bad, keep black to minimum
  • White – White is also bad, keep white sections to a minimum.

Having said all that, the Aset Tool is round. I own one and use it regularly but in my opinion it is really only designed for round stones. BUT, it still can help with all other cuts as you can easily see.p three online Diamond Retailers, WhiteFlash.com, Brian Gavin Diamonds, James Allen.com

Round Brilliant Cut Diamonds would by far be the most popular cut out of all the diamonds used in teh Jewellery world. Cutting them right has long been a battle between companies and cutters.  Going from Excellent, to Ideal to Super Ideal etc.  But basically it does’nt matter what they are called, all we want is a well cut stone. 

I’ve selected two that I liked, one from Brian Gavin Diamonds and the other from White Flash Diamonds. Both these diamonds display fantastic Aset optical images. Both Diamonds are just over a carat and both are D – IF and have excellent Ideal Scope images.

Last Say:

These are just a few images from an ASET Tool.  There are hundreds, if not thousands of different variations since each diamond is cut slightly differently. The only real hurdle you will find is that most diamond dealers do not supply these images.  The most common ASET Images are of course of round brilliant cuts since those are the most popular.  If you have found a stone but there are no images, just ask. You might have to email and wait a day or two, but if it’s a stone that your serious on, then it’s worth the wait.  I would advise against buying a diamond online if theere are NO scientific images you can check and double check what they are claiming.  

Cheers

Wow, thanks Mark I'm so glad I found your site. There's so much info out there and it's hard to believe everything. Those Aset images were just what I was looking for.
