Emerald Cut Diamond Rings: love the unique look

Emerald cuts are instantly recognizable, featuring a rectangular parallel cut with recessed (cut off) corners, making it different from a princess (modified square brilliant) or baguette cut (bevelled edges with angled corners). This octagon-type shape is a statement worthy with its sleek style and clean design. The square emerald cut offers a square version of this rectangular cut.

Vintage Glamour of Emerald Cuts

In the 1500s, stone cutters created a shape specifically for the emerald, the precious green variety of the mineral family, beryl. Emeralds are often highly included (natural growth blemishes), making them susceptible to damage when exposed to environmental factors. These cuts protected the emerald, securing them in the setting with claw prongs on each cut-out corner.

Emerald cut saw a surge in popularity in the 1920s during the Art Deco era. Architectural geometric shapes created the perfect backdrop for this streamlined look and strong appearance. Diamond rings, pendants, and necklaces featuring emerald cut stones became the most desired look for fine jewellery and other creative stone designs.

Emerald cuts contain 57 facets and are best suited for higher quality stones, free of inclusions. The entire stone can be viewed from top to bottom like a window, offering very little coverage for blemishes.
