What is an Asscher Cut Diamond?

The Asscher cut diamond was developed in 1902 by the Asscher Brothers of Holland and is a variation of an Emerald cut.  The Asscher cut is a stepped square cut also known as a Modified Square Emerald cut.   This cut offers a small table (largest facet on a stone) high crown (top portion of the stone) deep pavilions (lower portion of the stone), and cut corners.   With its 72 wide step facets it resembles that of an octagon and sparkles like the Round Brilliant.

The Asscher was designed to draw your eye to the center of the stone.  Because of this, cut, color, and clarity are very important factors to consider when choosing this cut.  Always purchase the best stone within your budget.  When choosing an Asscher weight should be the last thing you consider.
