ABOUT ROYAL ASSCHER
Royal Asscher was established in 1854 in the Netherlands and has had a very influential presence in the diamond industry. The company cut the worlds largest diamond to date and has also been awarded the title "Royal" two times from Queen Juliana of the Netherlands for being the top in the industry. Royal Asscher has provided jewelry to Royals for over a century now including Queen Elizabeth II and the Late Princess Diana.
Recently a more contemporary collection with a charitable tie-in was created called ‘Stars of Africa’. The collection represents one of the greatest innovations in the jewelry industry- floating diamonds! Diamonds encased in a fluid filled dome move around freely creating an effect that is utterly mesmerizing. Royal Asscher’s beautiful modern twist on traditional diamond design is helping rebuild Africa, which makes each piece have an underlying beauty as well. Royal Asscher refuses to work with conflict diamonds that originate from war torn countries that are unethically sourced and sold to fund warfare and civil destruction. Royal Asscher only sources diamonds from nations that are fully compliant with the Kimberly Process, an international diamond industry initiative to stop the flow of conflict diamonds.
Royal Asscher diamonds have not only been worn by international royalty, but they have also been spotted on Hollywood's hottest celebs including Sofia Vergara, Kate Bosworth, Carrie Underwood, Kat Graham, and Megan Fox.
