An Asscher Cut engagement ring is a unique shape that is cut in a similar
style to the emerald cut diamond but with a square shape. The popularity of
an Asscher cut for an engagement ring stems from the desire for a high clarity
diamond as the structure of the facets in an Asscher cut diamond require a stone
to have a high clarity (VS2 and above for GIA and VS1 and above for EGL, to ensure
it is completely eye clean). The standard number of main facets on an Asscher cut
is usually 58 and the typical ratio for the more popular square-shaped Asscher cuts is 1.00 to 1.05.
The width of the cut corners may vary. With its deep pavilion, faceted culet, high crown and small table, the Asscher cut allows for tremendous lustre and creates a fascinating optical illusion known as the “Hall of Mirrors” effect.
With its clean lines and complex structure an Asscher cut engagement ring makes for a purely original choice for your engagement ring.
