Asscher cut diamonds showcase a gem’s unique luster and clarity through an alluring hall of mirrors effect seen through their wide-open facets.
Asscher cuts are less expensive than round brilliant cuts because less of the rough diamond is lost during the cutting process. However, because of their wide-open tables, inclusions are more visible in Asscher cuts, which means they need gemstones with higher clarity grades, which could drive up their price.
About 2% of diamonds are Asscher cuts, making them quite rare and harder to find.
There is no large difference in price between Asscher and emerald cuts, emerald cuts can be slightly cheaper because they are less rare, however, both cuts require higher quality stones as they do not conceal inclusions well, this could increase their price tags.
Asscher-cut diamonds tend to look smaller than other diamonds of the same carat weight cut in a different way like emerald or round-brilliant cuts.
