We just created these spectacular Asscher cut, baguette cut and round brilliant cut earrings and it made us think of the interesting history behind Asscher cut diamonds.
This unique cut was developed in 1902 by the Asscher family and features a stepped square cut with 58 facets.
Bringing together antique and modern, Asscher cut stones are often associated with royalty, luxury and wealth.
They are a lesser requested stone cut, but those who seek to wear it will covet them for life.
With cut corners, more light enters the diamond, making it maze like in appearance, drawing the eye deeper into the centre of the diamond.
The Asscher cut was a staple of art deco and art nouveau era jewellery, producing outstanding brilliance and creating a ‘hall of mirrors’ effect.
Celebrities who have worn Asscher cut diamond engagement rings include Elizabeth Taylor, Kim Kardashian, Mariah Carey, Gweneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, Ashlee Simpson and Zoey Deschanel.
