The Asscher brothers created this glamorous cut in 1902. However, it wasn’t until 1920 that the Asscher diamond became a people’s favorite. 


Many have compared this spectacular cut to the emerald cut diamond. You may wonder why. A close look at this stunning diamond will tell you why.


The Asscher diamond features the same kind of step cut as an emerald. The only difference is that Asscher is a square diamond while an emerald diamond is rectangular and elongated. The squared shape of an Asscher is even more unique with its cropped edges which make it octagonal.


Another special feature of the Asscher diamond is that its facets are large, and it has a pointy crown. These combine to produce an exceptional shine and brilliance that speaks a language of glory. 


The nature of the cut creates ripples of clean lines following after the other in vibrant succession. Because of this linear progression in the cut, many refer to the Asscher diamond as an architectural cut. 


Last but not least, Asscher diamond settings abound. This diamond cut is flawless because it integrates smoothly with most jewelry settings, especially vintage. So, with this diamond shape, you can step up your look with a bizarre but eccentric style.

Is Asscher Cut More Expensive Than Emerald

If you’re wondering about an Asscher diamond price in Singapore and contemplating getting an emerald diamond, this is for you. The price of an Asscher diamond per carat is on the same level as that of an emerald diamond. The reason is that both are step cuts that cost less than the brilliant round diamond and their similarities put them in the same price category. 


However, despite the lesser carat price, these cuts require diamonds of exceptional clarity since they expose inclusion. Hence, the cost of clarity grade hikes price a bit. So if you intend to make your decision by the cost, there’s no difference between the both.

An intrinsic creation from the Art Deco era which can still rock your world today.

Its 58 straight, sharp, and clean cut facets are seated gallantly among its special features. The organizational brilliance of these facets creates its boisterous vintage look. Other than the look, the artistic description of this cut “hall of mirrors” was culled from the facets. 


I dare say that the Asscher diamond’s facets are its most prized possession. The Royal Asscher capitalizes on this to create 74 extraordinary beautiful facets. 


The Asscher cut gives a regal look in addition to class and elegance. There’s no reason for you not to have an Asscher diamond.

What Should I Look For in an Asscher Cut

If you’re bent on buying an Asscher diamond for your jewelry piece or set, there are certain things you should know. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. So, let’s get up to date on what to watch out for when shopping for an Asscher diamond. 


An Asscher diamond’s surface table is flat and open, meaning you can look clearly into the diamond. This feature is nice, but you won’t appreciate it if obvious imperfections mar your diamond. Therefore, clarity is the first thing you should look out for in an Asscher diamond.


With a flat table surface and prolific step cuts, color is quite obvious in an Asscher diamond. While some fashionistas may not mind the color, others do because it tones down the brilliance of your diamond. 


So, depending on your spectrum on the radar, you may have to mind the color. A good place to begin is the color grade I. You can hoist up the grade if it doesn’t cause a dent in your account.


However, if you have the clarity and color in check, you will dazzle in any Asscher diamond jewelry. Consider an Asscher cut diamond necklace in a halo setting to enhance its brilliance. The look will be cut-throat gorgeous.
