The timeless elegance of emerald cut engagement rings
The emerald cut diamond ring is one of the oldest diamond shapes, with its origins dating back to the 1500s. The emerald cut has earned its appeal amongst brides-to-be because of their long elegant body and because the stone shape tends to look larger than others, making it the perfect choice for a show-stopping engagement ring.
Since their origin, emerald cut engagement rings have been celebrated for their sleek elegance whilst remaining true to their Art Deco style. An emerald cut diamond can be easily identified by their rectangular form and precision cut corners. They have small rectangular facets that resemble stairs or steps, separating them from more common brilliant cut engagement rings. Because the emerald cut has 58 facets (25 crown, 8 girdle and 25 pavilion), they emit their sparkle and brilliance in a more subtle fashion than other cuts.
What’s more, the emerald cut diamond is amongst the most versatile of engagement rings and lends itself to many settings, making it perfect to suit the individual character of any bride. Many women love to pair the emerald cut diamond with a halo around the centre stone for a modern twist. Or, pairing the diamond with two side stones adds some extra sparkle. Another approach is to use the emerald cut diamonds as side stones to another cut as the centre for a ring that is a little out of the ordinary.
