The Asscher shape diamond was developed in 1902 by the Asscher Brothers of Holland and is a variation of an Emerald cut. The Asscher cut is a stepped square cut also known as a Modified Square Emerald cut. This cut offers a small table (largest facet on a stone) high crown (top portion of the stone) deep pavilions (lower portion of the stone), and cut corners. With its 72 wide step facets it resembles that of an octagon and sparkles like the Round Brilliant. This cut is designed to draw your eye directly into the diamond.
