The Asscher cut diamond was developed in 1902 by the Asscher Brothers of Holland. This shape is similar to the Emerald, except it is specifically square, boasting 74 facets. Although there are many facets, they are still long and rectangular which means, just like the Emerald, they highlight the clarity of the diamond. All that to say, make sure you have a great quality diamond so you don’t have to worry about flaws showing.
The high crown step facets of this diamond have an incredible mirror-like ability to capture and reflect light, making them a very desireable choice for those out there looking for a shine. Its distinctly angled and cropped corners give it a one-of-a-kind look.
Also, for the ladies that were heart broken that Emeralds do not flatter wider fingers, the Asscher shape is extremely flattering for most hands and finger sizes! You see, all’s well that ends well.
