Recently we have noticed an increase in the popularity of emerald cut diamond engagement rings. In fact according to engagement ring research, the emerald cut diamond is the third most popular diamond cut for use in engagement rings in 2012. Although the diamond cut isn’t as fiery and sparkly as a round or princess cut diamond due to its step cut design, instead its long flat table creates more dramatic flashes of light that pass through the diamond. The shape and cut of the emerald diamond is very sophisticated and perfect to wear as an engagement ring. Here are some designs of emerald diamond engagement rings we love
