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.
