Asscher Shape Diamonds

A diamond's shape is its outline when viewed from the top and is one of its most important defining characteristics. Asscher cut diamonds are perfectly square with cropped corners and are crafted using step cutting and faceting techniques. Like an emerald cut, the faceting of a well-cut asscher will create an illusion likened to a hallway of reflecting mirrors. We recommend choosing an asscher with an SI1 clarity rating or higher, as this shape diamond is more transparent than others.

Diamond Shape

When selecting a certified diamond, shape is one of the most important factors to consider. The contours and outlines of a loose diamond have a significant impact on its appearance. At Brilliance, we offer the ten most popular shapes in our certified diamond search. Round diamonds have long been the most popular, although many modern consumers prefer alternative shapes, including emerald, princess, radiant, and asscher, among others. Each diamond shape has its own unique traits, aesthetic properties, and markings of quality.

Asscher Cut Diamonds

Introduced in 1902 by Joseph Asscher, the renowned loose diamond cutter from which it got its name, this diamond shape utilizes many of the same cutting techniques as the square emerald cut. What sets the asscher apart are its uniquely angled and cropped corners, considered a revolutionary concept in diamond cutting when it was first conceived by the owners of the Royal Asscher Diamond Company.

Many diamond experts compare the facets of a properly cut asscher to a hallway lined with reflective mirrors, radiating a great deal of brilliance. The shape is preferred by avant-garde jewelry connoisseurs for its art deco appeal. Although new cutting techniques are always emerging to optimize the sparkle and fire of the asscher, the same basic characteristics have endured for more than a century.

Since the cutting style of an asscher diamond makes imperfections more visible, it’s recommended to choose a clarity grade of SI1 or higher.

To achieve optimal symmetry and light performance in a loose diamond, the stone must be cut to specific depth and table percentages. The depth percentage of a diamond measures the ratio of the stone’s depth to the diamond’s total diameter. The table percentage is the ratio of the width of the diamond’s top facet in relation to the width of the entire stone. For asscher cut diamonds, the depth and table ranges below will yield different qualities of cut.

  • Depth Percentage
    • Ideal: 72% - 60%
    • Excellent: 76% - 56%
    • Very Good: 78% - 54%
    • Good: 80% - 50%
  • Table Percentage
    • Ideal: 72% - 60%
    • Excellent: 74% - 55%
    • Very Good: 76% - 50%
    • Good: 80% - 50%

Every diamond shape has a length-to-width ratio, which determines how a certified diamond will appear when viewed from above. When selecting an Asscher shaped diamond, look for a length-to-width ratio between 1 and 1.05.
