Wholesale Asscher Diamonds in Dallas by Shira Diamonds
The Asscher diamonds are not heard of very often. Created by the Holland based Asscher brothers in 1902, these diamonds are known for their uniqueness. While resembling an emerald cut in many ways, this particular diamond is shaped like a square instead of a rectangle. It has not been much in vogue recently however until the main lead of the television show, ‘Sex and the City’ started wearing it. The popularity increased many folds eventually with several Hollywood celebrities brandishing their niche Asscher diamond engagement rings. Kate Hudson went a step forward by showing off her whopping 5-carat Asscher diamond ring too. Gwyneth Paltrow followed suit when she received an Asscher diamond engagement ring as well. The cut remains a bit uncommon though and you may not be able to find it in every Dallas store offering diamond jewelry at present.
The wide facets of the diamond may vary from 58 to 72, which along with the clipped corners actually make the diamond resemble more of an octagon than a square.There two different kinds of Asscher diamonds though. The one that is more common consists of 58 facets and is not patented. The Royal Asscher Cut was, however, introduced in 2001 and patented subsequently. You will not be able to buy it from anywhere else but from the company of the same name. The prefix of Royal was given by Queen Juliana of Holland in 1980 to the Asscher Diamond Company. An authentic Royal Asscher Cut diamond will also have a miniscule logo of the company inscribed by laser into the diamond.
