History Of Asschers
The Royal Asscher Diamond Company, formerly Asscher Diamond Company, makes Asschers. These gemstones are named after the Asscher brothers, and they first appeared in 1902. Asschers had their peak popularity in the 1920s during the Art Deco era, and they have some of this period’s designs. The family patented Asscher cut diamonds up until WW II when the family was deported from the Netherlands. The government seized their diamonds, and the 25 individuals that remained couldn’t return to the company after the war.
Joseph and Louis Asscher rebuilt the company in 1946. They changed its name to the Royal Asscher Diamond Company after Queen Juliana of Holland awarded it a Royal title. The company improved the original cut’s quality and cut by using modern diamond cutting procedures. The new patented Asschers had raised crowns and 78 facets.
