Asscher Cut Diamonds
The Asscher Cut was developed by Joseph Asscher, who was commissioned by the Royal Family to cut the world's largest diamond in history; the 3,106ct Cullinan diamond, after which he invented the now-famous Asscher cut. This cut reached its peak of popularity in the 1920's in very limited production. Up until 2001, the Asscher cut was a hard to come by commodity and available mostly in antique shops or from art deco jewelry dealers.

In 2001, the cut went through considerable research and development and was re-launched with new specifications and additional facets for a more brilliant shine. Because Asscher cuts have been revitalized, especially with the increasing popularity of square shapes, Princess and Asscher cuts are in demand more than ever.

The modern Asscher cut:

You can expect to pay a 10-20% premium for Royal Asscher cut diamonds, but they really need to be seen in person to be appreciated. They're not necessarily any more brilliant than Round Brilliant cuts or have more flashes of light; however, they are spectacular diamonds to look at with a very uniquely cut pattern.
