Asscher Cut

£336.00£7,000.00

The Asscher cut dates back to the early 20th century when jeweller and diamond cutter, Joseph Asscher, developed the design in his Amsterdam atelier. This new design coincided with the birth of the Art Deco movement. Perhaps one of the most famous diamonds of all time, worn by Elizabeth Taylor, was a jaw-dropping 33.19 carat Asscher called the “Krupp Diamond.”

The Asscher cut diamond can be seen as a 21st-century update to the Emerald cut. Also known as a step-cut, the Asscher cut features longer facets which give it a staircase appearance. It flashes long lines of sparkle, instead of the typical all-over sparkle.

This cut features a square shape with a flat table (top surface), many small step cuts along the top edges, and longer facets underneath for a Hall of Mirrors effect. Like the Cushion cut, the Asscher cut has an open culet (the bottom of the gemstone) and a facet plan that draws the eye into the gemstone and gives it depth. This is a highly unusual design, often favoured by those with a more with a vintage taste, but also with a modern sense of style.
