An asscher cut diamond is a square cut with multiple brilliant cut facets. Named for its creator, Joseph Asscher, this stone is more brilliant than other square and rectangular cut diamonds due to the multitude of facets which allow more light to shine through he stone.
Although the asscher cut has been steadily gaining in popularity and can be seen on many celebrity ring fingers, it is sometimes hard to view a wide selection of asschers at your local jewel because they are not sold at the same pace as more popular round cuts.

Tips for Selecting Your Asscher Diamond
Search Criteria to Pick the Perfect Asscher
To create a sparkling asscher cut diamond, you must start with a very high quality diamond as this cut in particular highlights the stone's color and clarity. For this reason, it is recommended that you search for diamonds with a color of H or above, and a clarity of VS2 or better.
Jewelers also recommend a table of 54 to 63, and depth of 64-72 to create the highest quality asscher cut diamond.
When you search for a diamond on Blue Nile it is easy to enter these criteria into their search tool and then shop their wide selection of asscher cut stones, and then select a perfect setting to show off your stone.

Higher rated stones are always more expensive. That is why it is recommended to shop for them online where you do not have the high markup or a small boutique jewelry seller. And, since asscher inventory is generally small in stores like these, shopping online gives you the ability to compare multiple diamonds side by side.

A four prong setting need not be boring. You can go for a simple platinum knife edge setting, or an ornate pave setting, or even one with side stones.
My personal favorite, and many jewelers would agree, is a split claw prong setting, also called a double prong setting.. These settings have each prong split into two to allow the diamond to show through on the corners, showcasing the clipped corner cut of the asscher stone.
