Diamonds are cut to interact with light in a way that gives them incredible brightness, fire, and sparkle. The way a diamond is cut can affect its clarity, and even its color. We recently had the opportunity to create an elegant custom emerald cut engagement ring with one of our lovely clients. Excited by this design, we are sharing more about emerald cut diamonds with you.
Now, although the round brilliant cut is a more popular cut of diamond, it shares the spotlight with the fancy cuts (gemstone shape other than round), in particular the emerald cut diamond. The unique look of the emerald cut diamond is created by a cutting style with lustrous, long, narrow facets and its large, open table. These long narrow facets allow the diamond to catch light beautifully, producing a hall-of-mirror effect. Even more, the simplicity of its design and bold, geometric symmetry emphasize diamonds transparency. Thus, letting the viewer see into the heart of the stone.
Granted, the beauty of an emerald cut is mostly a matter of personal taste. For example, household celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Beyoncé, Kristen Bell, and of course, Kim Kardashian (from then fiancé Kris Humphries), just to name a few, have received emerald cut engagement rings. Needless to say, every woman is unique; her engagement ring should not be an exception.
