Emerald cut diamond engagement rings showcase an elongated rectangular centerpiece diamond with a large table, subtle step cuts, and cut off corners. Sometimes referred to as a square emerald cut, emerald cut engagement rings have long lean facets and a large table area. These linear stepped facets that resemble stairs manifest flashes of light that get reflected and create a ‘hall of mirrors’ effect. This phenomenon has made it the most popular step-cut engagement ring.
Emerald cut engagement rings appear larger than round brilliant cut diamonds of the same carat weight, making them a good option for those that prioritise having a larger diamond. The elongated shape of emerald cut diamonds also creates a slimming illusion on the wearer’s hand as they appear to elongate the finger too.
Emerald cut diamonds work especially well in emerald cut solitaire engagement rings or emerald cut three stone engagement rings. They also work well as emerald cut halo engagement rings, emerald cut bezel engagement rings, or emerald cut split shank engagement rings.
For those with a discerning eye looking for an understated yet sophisticated engagement ring, an emerald cut diamond engagement ring definitely ticks all the boxes.
