What Is an Asscher-Cut Diamond?

An Asscher-cut diamond is an octagonal square-shaped diamond with layered facets. It is very similar to emerald cut diamonds, but with a square shape rather than a rectangle. Some refer to the Asscher diamond cut as a square emerald cut.

Asscher diamonds do not have sharp corners. Instead, the corners are blunted, which gives it eight sides. Asscher-cuts have a deep pavilion and a high crown.

The 74 facets make Asscher-cut diamonds sparkle like no other diamond shapes. A perfect center stone for engagement rings, Asscher-cut diamonds will wow your significant other.

History of Asscher Diamonds and the Royal Asscher Diamond Company

While not as well known as its more famous "cousin," the emerald cut, the Asscher-cut diamond has a long history.

Dating back to 1902, this diamond was first created by Joseph Asscher, a diamond cutter from the Royal Asscher Diamond Company, who aptly named the diamond cut after himself. He is one of the many diamond cutters of the Asscher family.

The Asscher cut design was a step cut and square shaped but with faceted corners to increase light intake and create a stunning sparkle.

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 its brilliant shine.

Although originally popular for vintage jewelry design and art deco style, the Asscher diamond shape can now be seen in an array of designs, modernizing this royal-worthy cut.

In fact, Elizabeth Taylor was famously known for wearing a 33.19ct Asscher-cut diamond ring, which was given to her by Richard Burton in 1968. Burton reportedly purchased the stone for $307,000, famously called the Krupp diamond.

Is an Asscher-Cut Diamond More Expensive?

Asscher diamonds are more expensive than other fancy shapes, but they are not the most expensive.

Round brilliant diamonds are still the most expensive, with pear-shaped and marquise-shaped diamonds following.

Asscher-cut engagement rings are more expensive than emerald-cut, heart-cut, princess-cut, and cushion-cut diamonds.

The 4C's of an Asscher-Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

Cut — Approximately a century after the Asscher-cut was first introduced, Joseph Asscher’s great-grandnephew revamped the design of the original Asscher-cut diamond — increasing the number of step facets from 58 to 74 and calling his new design the Royal Asscher Cut.

While a diamond shape describes a diamond’s basic outline (round, square, etc.), an Asscher-cut diamond is created from a cutting style, creating the diamond’s large step facets and high crown, which accentuate a diamond’s clarity.

The Asscher-cut diamond, similar to its more rectangular cousin, the Emerald, has an almost octagonal shape, with three rows on the top and three rows on the bottom.

Clarity — In measuring a diamond’s clarity, diamond experts use a grading scale. The best clarity is VVS1 followed by VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, and SI2.

Unlike other diamond shapes, such as the round or oval, the Asscher-cut has less of a "brilliant" appearance and more of a mirror effect — its appeal comes from its clean and sharp angles.

Because of its glassy, smooth top, similar to an emerald cut diamond, an Asscher-cut requires a higher grade of clarity to look its very best.

Since this cut allows inclusions to be easily seen, VS2 Clarity or higher is recommended for this step-cut diamond.

Color — In case you’re new to the 4 C’s, the scale that measures the color in diamonds is actually measuring the absence of color, graded on an alphabetical scale from D to Z, with D being a colorless diamond and Z being yellow.

There’s nothing to hide when it comes to these diamonds, so color is another important aspect of this spectacular diamond.

We would recommend that you go no lower than an H color rating, as a near-colorless range works better with the bold facets.

Carat Weight — Although due to their history and the precision it takes to cut this diamond, it may make it seem more expensive than others, it isn’t!

This is good news for you if you have your eye on this stunning diamond, as they have a relatively low carat weight. And if you’re stuck between an Asscher cut and an emerald cut, the Asscher-cut diamond tends to offer more sparkle, while emerald diamonds often appear larger.

It always comes down to personal preference and what style your partner wants; we are here to give you the facts!


Tips for Buying Asscher-Cut Diamonds

One of the most important qualities to look for when shopping around for an Asscher-cut diamond is the way it’s cut. Since this diamond has a deep cut, the majority of the diamond lies below the surface.

You want to make sure you are choosing an Asscher-cut with a shallower depth, between 60% to 67%, which gives you a larger-looking diamond.

Lab Grown Asscher-Cut Diamonds

This diamond is so unique and sure to dazzle anyone receiving it! We love this diamond for its geometric shape and rare qualities. To show off its unique shape, we love a simple setting, such as our solitaire setting, to properly show off the cut of this diamond.

A halo setting is also recommended if you’re picking a smaller carat size to allow for a diamond with better clarity and color, as the smaller diamonds surrounding the stone will allow for maximum sparkle while staying within your budget!

Because lab grown diamonds are typically 20-40% less expensive than mined diamonds, you are getting an even better price allowing you to use that extra cash on a dazzling setting, matching wedding band, or bigger stone!

Furthermore, your choice of a lab created Asscher cut diamond signals your dedication to supporting companies against the harm that mining practices do to the Earth and its inhabitants. The distinctive asscher cut diamond is something we adore, and we believe you can get it and any other diamond cut you'd like, ethically.
