The emerald diamond shape has a large, open table and rectangular step-cut facets, reminiscent of its green gemstone namesake. Emerald cut diamonds are growing in popularity for engagement rings and make a great choice for earrings and diamond necklaces.
As an engagement ring, the emerald cut diamond can create the illusion of elongating your finger. The emerald cut diamond is an incredibly sophisticated choice that evokes Art Deco glamor.
If you’re looking for a sparkly diamond, an emerald cut diamond may not be right for you - the large facets of this shape means that clarity tends to be its defining feature, as opposed to the sparkle of a brilliant cut. However, they do produce flashes of light that create a hall of mirrors effect.
If you are purchasing an emerald cut diamond engagement ring but want to add more sparkle, choose a classic diamond band or a halo setting.
When purchasing an emerald cut diamond, choose a clarity grade of at least VS1. Emerald cut diamonds can be square or rectangular. A length to width ratio of 1.00 – 1.03 is excellent for a square emerald, while a 1.40 – 1.50 is best for a rectangle.
