Asscher Cut Diamonds are extremely popular. It may surprise you to learn that this cut is actually a vintage style with a modern update. The modern asscher cut diamonds have more facets, a larger table, and smaller clipped corners than their vintage counterparts.

You can find a large selection of Asscher Cut Diamonds at Judith Arnell Jewelers in the Pearl District.

To mix it up a bit, try the necklace in a combination of aqua, lime and clear individually hand-blown hollow glass beads.

Magma is a distinctive line of lamp-worked glass jewelry. Each one-of-a-kind piece is individually hand-crafted by Blake Van Roekel in her Portland, Oregon studio through gentle manipulation of molten glass and metal with fire. Blake endeavors to infuse her colorful beads with the intangible qualities of beauty, vitality, and passion in the hope of igniting these qualities in the wearer.
