Amaze Her with a 2.46ct Asscher Cut Engagement Ring

Posted on January 23rd, 2015

The unique Asscher cut engagement ring boasts a square shaped diamond with beveled corners and a mesmerizing pattern of concentric facets. Designed in 1902 by Joseph Asscher, his namesake design was the first diamond cut to hold a patent.  Though often described as a “square shaped emerald cut”, this statement is a simply a broad description since there is a unique cutting technique and facet pattern that makes the Asscher shape distinct.  These unique diamonds rose to the apex of popularity during the Art Deco Period of the 1920s and thirties.  Since that time, Asschers have always been in high demand amongst antique jewelers in search of the stones to repair vintage pieces. Many of the original Asschers were later re-cut into different diamonds since the stones were high quality in color and clarity.
