Asscher Diamonds

Very similar in appearance to the emerald cut, the asscher cut is differentiated by a more square shape and the presence of a pavilion with rectangular facets. It is also charecherterised by its distinctive rounded corners. Developed by the Asscher Brothers of Holland in 1902, this cut has had a dramatic increase in popularity with exposure in shows like "Sex & the city" and on celebrities like Kate Hudson, demand for the asscher cut diamonds has dramatically increased. Very eye catching, the asscher diamond draws the eye to the diamond. It is recommended that when considering these diamonds, emphasis should also be placed on a diamond with a good clarity grade. A good length to width ratio for these diamonds would be between 1 and 1.05.
