While not as well known as its more famous ‘cousin’, the emerald, the Asscher cut diamond has a long history dating back to 1902, when this diamond was first created by Joseph Asscher, a diamond cutter, who aptly named the diamonds’ cut after himself. Later it came to be known as the Royal Asscher, and by the 20th century, this cut became widely popular both for its scarcity and brilliant shine. This diamond was originally popular for vintage designs and art deco styles, but now the Asscher cut diamond can be seen on an array of designs, modernizing this royal worthy cut. In fact, Elizabeth Taylor was famously known for wearing a 33.19ct Asscher Cut diamond, which was given to her by Richard Burton in 1968. Burton reportedly purchased the stone for $307,000.
