Colored Stones: Jeweler Israel Itzkowitz Debuts Asscher-Cut Princess Sapphires & More

The Princess DiariesIn 1902, Amsterdam jeweler Joseph Asscher developed the Asscher-cut diamond. More than 30 years ago, Israel Itzkowitz created the princess-cut diamond with Ygal Perlman and Bezalel Ambar. And in 2008, Itzkowitz combined the features of both to create the eight-corner Asscher Cut Princess Diamond (AcP). Now, Itzkowitz is branching out beyond diamonds with a patented line of ­Asscher Cut Princess sapphires from Quadamas.“Lovers of colored stones have a beautiful new look to add to their fine jewelry wardrobe,” says the Quadamas CEO. Asscher Cut Princess sapphires are available through Stuller in various carat weights and colors including pink, yellow, white, and (of course) blue. The cut will soon be offered in aquamarine and tanzanite.For more colorful gemstone talk
