Asscher (cut)

Similar to an emerald cut diamond, an Asscher cut appears as a square cut diamond, but truncated corners make it, in fact, an octagon. The shape was first introduced in 1902 by the Royal Asscher Diamond Company. The stepped facets and high crown of an Asscher cut are balanced for excellent brilliance.
