About Asscher Cut
Asscher Cut diamond was first developed by Joseph Asscher in 1902, and its design was patented in name of Asscher Diamond Company.
In 2001 - after almost 100 years - Edward and Joop Asscher introduced the Royal Asscher Cut, the design of which is again protected by an international patent.
Royal Asscher Cut was conceptualized on top of Traditional Asscher to enhance the brilliance of polished stone. The improvisation to traditional design gave a fresh momentum to popularity of asscher diamonds in market.
Besides maximizing the brilliance of stone, Royal Asscher utilizes
rough more efficiently. Due to this, it looks larger for its weight face
up because of less total depth.
When viewed from top, modern asscher resembles a regular octagon due to its deep truncated corners. Royal Asscher has wider corners and additional pavilion facets leading to 74 facets as against 58 facets of Traditional Asscher. Read more about Asscher Cut.
