An emerald cut diamond is uniquely defined by its refined rectangular shape and signature step-cut facets. While most diamond cuts focus on radiance and shimmer, the emerald cut offers a distinct elegance with its precise lines, geometric reflections, and hall-of-mirrors effect. The elongated design accentuates the diamond's clarity, rendering inclusions more apparent than other cuts. Initially crafted for emerald gemstones, this style was later adapted for diamonds. It has gained acclaim for its classy and elegant appeal, becoming a top choice for engagement rings and various jewellery items.
While both cuts boast elongated shapes, an emerald cut diamond has a step-cut facet pattern and rectangular silhouette, while a radiant cut features a mixed cut with more sparkle. Emerald cut diamonds are known for their sophistication and are often set with side stones to enhance their beauty. When shopping for an emerald cut diamond, paying attention to its clarity and colour is important, as these factors can significantly affect its appearance.
