Asscher Cut Diamonds

Developed in 1902 by Joseph Asscher, the Asscher cut diamond has been experiencing a comeback recently. Much like an emerald cut diamond, but with a square shape, Asscher cut diamonds are recognizable by the ‘X’ faceting pattern visible on the stone’s table. Asscher cuts are praised for their vintage, Art Deco style.

Vintage Asscher cut diamonds had 58 facets, but the modern Royal Asscher cut has 74 facets for added brilliance. Like other step diamond cuts, clarity is the most important 4C grade to watch in Asscher cut diamonds. An Asscher cut’s open table will reveal inclusions more than a round or princess cut diamond, so it is important to look for Asscher diamonds with the best clarity grades possible. In terms of Asscher cut diamond proportions, diamonds with a ratio of 1.05 or lower will appear square. Any length to width ratio higher than that will appear at least slightly square.
