Asscher Cut Diamonds
Brilliance from any angle.
Asscher cut diamonds were first introduced by Holland's Asscher Brothers in 1902. Sometimes referred to as the square emerald cut - to which it is similar, the unique Asscher cut features cropped corners and is a recently revived fashionable cut for diamonds. Asscher cut diamonds begin with a rough diamond with precise proportions to get absolutely perfect length-to-width ratios and a pointed culet.
The Asscher cut diamond's features give it the appearance of concentric squares held within its brilliance - magnifying its ability to reflect light. This, due to the cropped corners, gives it an octagonal shape. Additionally, the Asscher cut diamond's square silhouette makes it the perfect choice for those who prefer the classic four prong setting.
