What is an emerald cut?

An emerald cut is a type of diamond or gemstone cut in a rectangular shape. It is a variant of the traditional rectangular step cut with clipped corners to fashion a sort of long octagon-like shape. The emerald cut enhances the richness of a coloured gemstone’s hue or the clarity of a flawless white diamond.

This fancy gemstone cut draws its name from the stone most cut in this rectangular shape—the green emerald. However, any gemstone, including sapphires, rubies, or diamonds can have an emerald cut.

The Emerald cut is an iconic vintage style cut

Initially, this shape was created for emerald stones; however, the cut became popular with gemstone cutters because it requires less pressure during the cutting process, preventing chips in the gems. Diamond cutters took notice of this new shape and soon after began to incorporate it into diamonds as well.

Emerald cut diamonds
The emerald-cut diamond is one of the oldest diamond shapes, with stylistic origins tracing back to the table cut of the 1500s. However, the actual term “emerald cut” was not used until the 1920s when the art deco movement in designs became prominent. During these years this rectangular cut saw an increase in popularity because its clean lines and symmetry were widely admired. Since then, emerald cuts have remained one of the most popular cut choices for diamond rings too.

What does an emerald-cut gemstone look like?

The typical emerald cut has a large and prominent rectangular flat facet on top and a deep pavilion drawing light and the eye inward, deepening and intensifying the gemstone's colour and clarity to mesmerizing effect. The rows of elongated parallel facets on the pavilion (sides of the stone) and crown (between the flat top and the stones rim or edge), running parallel to the gem’s girdle, with sets at the corners and on each of the stone’s four sides.

While the number of steps or rows may vary, the standard number is 3 on the pavilion and 3 on the crown. The modern emerald cut has 58 facets, 25 on the pavilion, 25 on the crown, and 8 on the Girdle (Top), with three rows of top steps and three rows of bottom steps.

Similar step and rectangular cuts
Although most emerald cuts are rectangular, square variations called square emerald cuts also exist.
Asscher cuts are square versions of emerald cuts with more prominently truncated corners. This gives them an almost octagonal shape.
The baguette cut is also a rectangular step cut but has unbeveled, angled corners, resulting in a sharp rectangular shape.

Emerald-cut diamond engagement ring prices

When you choose a high-grade diamond ring with an emerald cut, you will still find that it is less expensive than other top-rated diamond cuts like the classic round brilliant, princess or marquise cuts. This is because, emerald-cut diamonds offer extraordinary savings, sometimes as much as 40% compared to a round-cut diamond of similar qualities. Unlike round brilliant cuts, you can also save by buying a shallower emerald cut which accentuates the diamond's carat weight (appearance of size).

How to choose an emerald-cut diamond engagement ring

♦ If you're choosing an emerald-cut diamond ring, you'll want to consider investing in a diamond with a higher colour grade, as the emerald cut will emphasize any inherent colour in the stone. Furthermore, you'll want to choose a diamond with a higher clarity grade, as the large table facet will emphasize any visible inclusions in the heart of the stone. For instance, an emerald-cut diamond with a grading like H for colour and VS2 for clarity will give you the most for your money.
♦ You can also look for shallower stones since these will face up (appear) larger. The angles in an emerald cut aren’t as important to its beauty, so a shallow stone can still look great!
♦ Avoid emerald-cut diamonds that have large dark areas.
♦ Find your perfect emerald-cut ring size.

When the quality of the gemstone or diamond based on the 4Cs grading system is high, then the emerald cut engagement ring is a winner in handcrafted and unique designer styles. These fancy-cut diamonds reflect light in broad flashes, offering a unique and sophisticated style.
