Asscher-Cut Diamond Shape
Avital & Co.
If you can imagine it, we’ll create it since 1957
The Asscher-cut diamond is similar to the emerald-cut diamond only that it is square vs. rectangular in design. The cut was originally created in 1902 by Joseph Asscher, a diamond jeweler from Amsterdam and became popular in the 1920's and 1930's during the Art Deco Period. Recently the Asscher-cut diamond regained popularity thanks to being featured on Sex and the City and by some celebrities.
The Asscher-cut diamond, also known as a square emerald-cut diamond, is characterized by a high crown, small table facet, and deep pavilion, which allows it to have more fire than the emerald cut. Similar to the emerald-cut diamond, when choosing an Asscher-cut diamond, it is important to take into consideration the cut, clarity and color or the diamond. Due to the way this type of diamond is cut causing a mirror effect that is created by the beautiful facets of the Asscher-cut, inclusions are more visible in an Asscher-cut diamond than in other diamond cuts. Thus, the color of an Asscher-cut diamond is more noticeable. Therefore, at Avital and Co., located in the heart of the world famous Diamond District in New York City (NYC), we recommend when choosing an Asscher-cut diamond, you choose a diamond of a higher clarity and color.
