Diamond Shape Guide – Asscher Cut

Often mistaken for emerald cut diamonds, asscher cut diamonds are similar, however, they are square in shape rather than rectangular. Created in the early 1920s, the asscher cut has seen a recent resurgence in popularity.

This cut shows off the clarity and color of the stone, so keep these facts in mind when shopping for your diamond.

While a diamond’s SHAPE is not part of the Four Cs of Diamonds, it still will have a significant impact on the appearance of your stone. Each diamond shape is cut to different specifications, which will reflect light in unique ways, contributing to the fire and brilliance of the stone.
