What is an emerald cut?
An emerald cut refers to a very specific way in which a diamond is shaped. It is characterised by its rectangular design and cut corners and also feature a step cut design whereby two facets sit parallel to one another.
Diamonds cut in this way do showcase a mirror-like effect, which is reflective and striking in certain lights and angles. The large, flat and reflective surface is reminiscent of the Art Deco period, giving emerald cut engagement rings a vintage, and timeless feel.
Although the Art Deco period saw the resurgence of the emerald cut, it has been around for centuries. The shape originated from gemstone cutting, whereby skilled craftsmen found it to be the most protective for emeralds as it minimised chipping and accentuated the stone’s rich colour.
Choosing the right emerald cut engagement ring
Emerald cut stones have a number of unique characteristics, meaning there are many things to consider before choosing the ring of your dreams. Firstly, they don’t appear to sparkle as much when compared to other more traditional cuts, such as round or oval, for example so instead of looking for sparkle, consider the reflectiveness and mirror-like surface instead.
The flat table surface of an emerald cut provides a window to the clarity and colour of a diamond or gemstone. For this reason, many choose stones with close to flawless clarity ratings in order to avoid any noticeable inclusions. For diamond rings, a stone that is as close to colourless as possible is the most popular choice.
In terms of carat, the large surface area enhances the size of a stone, meaning a diamond of the same carat will look bigger in an emerald shape than other cuts, including round, oval or cushion for example. Therefore, if size is important to you or your partner, an emerald cut ring is definitely one to consider.
