If you take 58 step-cut facets fashioned in a quadrilateral parallel array, you create a mirror-like reflection of light that is the signature look of the Asscher cut diamond ring. This turn-of-the-20th century creation was the namesake of Joseph Asscher, whose family still designs diamonds today. Often loosely referred to as a “squared emerald cut”, this label simply describes the shape of the stone, since the facet patterns are very distinctive in an Asscher cut diamond. This special cut is reminiscent of the Art Deco period, hitting its apex of popularity during the 1920s-1930s. If you love the jewelry of this era, look into the incandescent beauty of the emerald cut diamond ring as an alternative to the Asscher.
