Emerald & Asscher Cut Diamond Engagement Rings

Situated comfortably between very chic and classically elegant, vintage emerald cut and Asscher cut diamond engagement rings are timeless pieces! While these styles were especially fashionable during the Art Deco era of the 1920s, both cuts have remained popular and are highly sought after today!

Emerald Cut vs Asscher Cut Diamonds

 While vintage Asscher and emerald cut diamond engagement rings appear similar, there are a few key differences.

The Cuts

Both of these styles are step cut. This means that they both have straight facets. The key difference is that emerald cut diamond engagement rings feature a rectangular stone. Asscher cut diamonds have a square shape to them!

Emerald cut diamonds also have wider, more open tables—but Asschers have more facets. Asscher cut diamonds will also have a distinct X-shaped facet pattern. The culet on an emerald cut stone is more trough-shaped. Both cuts give the appearance of concentric squares, creating an intriguing and distinct hall-of-mirrors appearance!

The Histories

As its name suggests, the emerald cut was adapted from the process for cutting emeralds. While the emerald cut was not standardized until 1940, its history dates all the way back to the 1400s, with little variation.

 The Asscher cut was first created in 1902 by Joseph Asscher and became popular during the Art Deco era of the 1920s. Asscher’s original process involved cutting a square-shaped diamond with 58 facets. Later, the Royal Asscher Company would improve the brilliance of the cut with 74 facets.

Benefits Of These Cuts

 Whether you choose an emerald or Asscher cut, there’s much to love in these gorgeous vintage engagement rings. Here are just a few of the benefits these cuts have in common:

  • Give your hand an elegant, slender look
  • Perfect for shorter fingers
  • Goes well with almost any setting
  • More durable, less prone to chipping
