For Asscher shape diamonds, we suggest a depth of 58-69% and table of 50-65% with smaller percentages producing larger size for the carat weight and better cut.

Joseph, along with his brother, Abraham, formed the Royal Asscher Diamond Company in 1854. The Asscher brothers were famous at the time because they named the individual diamonds they cut after the royalty of the times. They started out working with cushion cuts, but later, inspired by the Renaissance table cuts, the Asschers invented a cut that they patented and named after themselves. Joseph Asscher of Holland patented the famous Asscher cut diamond in 1902.
