Asscher Cut Diamonds
The asscher cut diamond dates back to 1902. The cut was created that year by a man named Joseph Asscher, founder of the Royal Asscher Company. His creation became an instant sensation in the diamond industry for many years after. In the past few years, experiments with new jewelry styles brought back the asscher cut to today’s diamond buying public. The beauty of the asscher cut is that it doesn’t have set proportions. Of course there are the basic measurements but each cutter will cut the asscher to maximize its brilliance and fire.
If you like the emerald cut, but prefer a more brilliant, clean cut diamond, an asscher cut is the perfect choice for you.
Just like most of the fancy cut diamonds, color is slightly more visible in asscher cut diamonds.
