An emerald cut diamond is the perfect choice if you want a vintage and classic looking engagement ring. This year we have seen the emerald cut diamond engagement ring grow in popularity. Like the name suggests, an emerald cut diamond was developed from an emerald stone. The shape of the stone can either be square or rectangular and has cropped corners. The cut of the diamond is known as a ‘step cut’ which resembles steps on a staircase and has 58 facets. Although the diamond is not as bright and sparkly as a brilliant cut diamond, the diamond denotes an air of sophistication. This is mainly due to its elegant trim lines, making the diamond cut perfect for a simple engagement ring setting or even a more elaborate setting.
