All About the Asscher Cut
The Asscher cut is a striking square-shaped gem that is a gorgeous blend of the princess cut and emerald cut designs with X-shaped facets from its corner to its center. As a result of this unique faceting pattern, Asscher cuts emit a dazzling glimmer unmatched by other stone cuts. The step cut of the Asscher diamond also emphasizes the clarity of the stone and can mask certain inclusions in lower color grades. Featuring a pointed cutlet that draws the eye to the center of the diamond, the Asscher cut is sure to mesmerize with its stunning depth.
History of the Asscher Cut Diamond
Named after the brothers and founders of the Royal Asscher Diamond Company, the Asscher cut first appeared in 1902. The original cut featured 58 facets, peaking in popularity in the 1920's Art Deco era, and still emits ultimate vintage glamour. The Royal Asscher was developed using modern cutting methods to bring the cut to new heights of perfection. Eventually, the cut would have the crown raised and more facets added for a dazzling 78 facets. The development of the Royal Asscher has catapulted the beautiful silhouette back into the spotlight and grown in popularity in the last decade.
