Frequently asked questions about Asscher Diamonds

Explore VRAI’s inventory to buy diamonds. Browse Asscher cut diamonds to make your selection, then choose “Purchase without setting” to complete your purchase. Loose VRAI created diamonds of 0.5 carats and more are sold with a Lifetime Warranty, so you can choose your lab-grown diamond with confidence.

Asscher cuts can appear smaller than other diamond shapes of the same carat weight. This is because an Asscher’s cut is deep, not wide; some of their carat weight is therefore concealed from view. For those who want the Asscher cut diamond in their engagement ring, for example, to look larger, it’s easiest to simply move up in carat weight.

However, when it’s time to buy an engagement ring, certain settings like Halo, Signature Bezel, and Three Stone engagement rings can make your center stone appear bigger should you not want to move up in size.

Although both Asscher and Emerald cut diamonds feature step-cut facets that create a “hall of mirrors” effect, they are not the same shape. An Emerald cut diamond is rectangular in shape, while an Asscher is squared. An Emerald has an elongated form that maximizes carat weight and can make it appear slightly larger, while an Asscher carries most of its carat weight through its center and can actually appear smaller than other diamond shapes of the same carat weight.

An Asscher cut diamond produces brilliance — what gemologists say when referring to “sparkle” — unlike most other diamond shapes. Its large step facets and a high crown produce a “hall of mirrors” effect, similar to that of an Emerald cut diamond. But because of the Asscher’s deep cut, this effect is accentuated by the addition of a distinctive x-pattern at the diamond’s center.
