The Asscher belongs to the Step cut type. It is a very unique square shaped stone that strongly resembles the rectangular shaped Emerald cut diamond. It also contains rectangular shaped facets that are cut in steps through the pavilion of the stone. It is highly recommended to choose a higher clarity grade stone for this cut-cornered diamond since the table is quite open.
