Frequently Asked Questions

About Emerald Cut Diamond Engagement Rings

What is an emerald cut engagement ring?

An emerald cut diamond engagement ring features an emerald cut diamond at the centre. Emerald cut diamonds are typically colourless, and not to be confused with green emeralds. Emerald cut diamonds are rectangular, with large, open, parallel facets that celebrate the clarity of the diamond and produce more subtle flashes of sparkle.

Why choose an emerald cut engagement ring?

Emerald cut engagement rings are very sophisticated in style, and are one of the lesser-chosen diamond shapes, meaning an emerald cut ring is unique and unusual. Emerald cut diamonds are step cut, meaning they aren’t necessarily designed to sparkle with intense brilliance, but instead possess a ‘hall of mirrors’ illusion, with more subtle flashes of light and lustre. The shape is modern, simple and clean - perfect for minimalists.

Why are they called emerald shape engagement rings?

The rectangular shape and long, parallel facets of emerald cut diamonds were first used to cut and shape green emeralds. The style was adopted to create emerald shaped diamonds, with large, open facets that show off the diamond’s clarity.

Is an emerald cut diamond ring more expensive?

Emerald cut diamond rings are typically a little less expensive than round rings and some other diamond shapes. Having said this, it is worth investing in a really good clarity grade, as inclusions are more visible than in most shapes due to the large, open facets. Look at clarity grades above VS2 if you can.

Why should my emerald cut diamond ring have a high clarity grade?

Emerald cuts are a type of step cut diamond, with large, open facets, meaning you can see much more detail within the diamond than you can with brilliant cut shapes, oval or cushion cut or round engagement rings. Because of this, small inclusions may be more visible - so aim for a clarity grade over VS2 for your emerald cut engagement ring.

Is an engagement ring with an emerald cut diamond a good idea?

Yes - if you like the simplicity of the rectangular shape, and only like subtle sparkle then an emerald cut is for you. Emerald cut diamonds don’t have the intense sparkle of shapes like rounds, ovals, cushions or pears - but they have an incredibly enchanting, ‘hall of mirrors’ twinkle. Emerald cut diamonds typically have cut corners, meaning they do not have weak and vulnerable corners, like, for example, princess cut diamonds, which make them a great option for people who like the square or rectangular look.

What does an emerald cut diamond ring symbolise?

Emerald cut diamond rings symbolise clarity and strength thanks to their clear, sharp facets and large table. This makes emerald cut diamond rings the perfect choice to represent a strong commitment. The parallel, rectangular facets of an emerald cut give the shape a modern charm with a refined geometric aesthetic.
