Story

The ASHOKA Emerald and Diamond Boutique Collection Watch is covered with more than nine carats of ASHOKA emeralds and more than 33 carats of ASHOKA. Jacob & Co. is one of the few companies in the world authorized to sell the rare and exclusive ASHOKA diamond, a uniquely shaped and faceted gem created by the William Goldberg diamond firm.

The brilliance of the ASHOKA gem is unmatched as is its uniqueness. This makes this boutique exclusive timepiece a prized possession that easily warrants its $680,000 price tag.

THE ASHOKA DIAMOND

William Goldberg made his mark in the diamond industry as one of the premiere dealers of exceptional diamonds and jewels through his eponymous New York jewelry firm. In 1999, he introduced the ASHOKA diamond, named after a famous 3rd century BC ruler of India and based on an historic 41-carat diamond. Its 62-facet cut is so unique it received a U.S. patent. With its unique cut and arrangement of facets, the ASHOKA appears 30% larger than an emerald cut diamond of the same carat weight. Ashoka cut diamonds are exceedingly rare because making them requires a large rough diamond—one that's at least three carats in size and essentially flawless.

The ASHOKA Emerald and Diamond Boutique Collection Watch adds a row of emeralds on the bracelet for a contrast of color.

Jacob & Co. is one of the few companies in the world authorized to sell the ASHOKA diamond. It has appeared on several Jacob & Co. diamond encrusted watched and rare jewels. It is with a sense of pride and a great privilege to make these exceptional, exclusive diamonds available to you.

DIAMOND AND EMERALD SETTING

It takes a skilled artisan upwards of four months to place each of the 58 individual ASHOKA diamonds on the case and bracelet 16 ASHOKA diamonds on the dial, and 23 ASHOKA emeralds on the bracelet of the of the ASHOKA Emerald and Diamond Boutique Collection Watch. This detail becomes more important because of the unique cut of the diamond and emeralds. With 62 facets and a shape similar but much larger than a traditional emerald cut with its 57 facets, the ASHOKA is exclusively produced by the William Goldberg diamond firm. It is a rare, exclusive diamond with a unique brilliance that is enhanced further by the quality of the setting.
