When Art Deco jewelers discovered the Asscher cut diamond, it was a match made in heaven! While the cut was first developed by Joseph Asscher in 1902, it didn’t quite catch on until the 1920s. Why did it suddenly become so popular? Art Deco jewelry was all about sleek, modern designs with bold geometric patterns. An Asscher diamond offers excellent clarity with a unique facet style. Looking through the table of the stone, the diamond almost becomes a kaleidoscope. You can see concentric squares crossed by an X shape. The square cut of the stone often features cut corners, creating an octagon as well. So many shapes are contained in this sleek, cohesive style!
There are plenty of reasons to love a vintage Asscher cut ring! For one, they have a distinct “hall of mirrors” look, which gives them a unique depth. An Asscher cut diamond looks great in any setting and will often make your hand appear slender and elegant. A vintage Asscher cut engagement ring is always a unique and stunning treasure.
