The Asscher cut is a step cut similar to the emerald cut and is sometimes referred to as a ‘square emerald cut’. Asscher cuts are typically square, ideally with a width to length ratio between 1-1.05. This cut was created in 1902 by well-known diamond-cutter Joseph Asscher. The Asscher is known for its wide-open table and fine symmetry, which show off a diamond's sparkle. As inclusions are very visible in an Asscher cut, it is recommended that gems with better clarity are cut this way.

Although this elegant cut was originally designed for diamonds, it also goes well with colored gems such as emeralds or sapphires. Asscher cut gems are known for their subtle beauty and uniqueness, they are usually set in solitaire, to showcase their unique designs. However, Asscher cuts are also popularly used in Art Deco settings, which made the cut very popular in the 1920s. Halo settings and pave diamonds also work well with Asscher cuts to increase a ring’s sparkle.
