The emerald cutis one of the first cuts to be used in gemstones for jewellery. Its timeless beauty and classic cut make it the perfect choice for vintage inspired diamond set jewellery. The emerald cut in diamonds became extremely popular and fashionable in the 1900 during the Art Deco period, when the multi facet table cut in the stone was introduced.
The cut of the diamond is often referred to as the ‘Step Cut’, due to its stair step resemblance when viewed from above. The shape of the stone is rectangular and features truncated corners. The cut is comprised with 57 facets, with 25 on the crown of the diamond and 32 on the pavilion, which are basically broad flat lines. Although the emerald cut diamond isn’t as fiery as brilliant cut diamonds, its long flat lines have more dramatic flashes on light.
As it’s clearer to see the cut of the diamond, we always recommend opting for a high clarity and colour grade, preferably over VS2 and G colour, as marks yellow tints will be more visible. You should always make sure that the stone you buy is independently certificated from a diamond grading laboratory like GIA, as you will be sure to get what you’re paying for. We also recommend a length to with ration between 1.30 and 1.50 – 1.40 is the best ration and most popular.
