Asscher Cut Diamonds
Asscher, or square emerald, is a step cut diamond as well. Because of this, they hide color very well but will show inclusions in SI1 or SI2 clarities We recommend staying in the VS2 Clarity Range or better. Their large step facets, higher crown, and smaller table allow them to produce more brilliance than their emerald cut counterparts. The cropped corners give the asscher cut a somewhat octagonal shape. Asschers will appear smaller on a per carat basis then Emeralds.
