CUT DIAMOND RING
WHAT IS EMERALD CUT?
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN AN EMERALD CUT DIAMOND RING
An emerald cut diamond has larger surfaces so it’s more difficult to mask inclusions. Because of that, stones with higher clarities are best. On the other hand, the emerald cut can handle color better than other cuts so one way to save money without sacrificing on the look of your stone is to choose a lower color. The price of an emerald cut diamond is similar to a cushion cut and slightly less than a princess cut.
Many gemologists will recommend looking for a ratio between 1.45 and 1.55 but if you’re leaning towards more of a square shape, 1.3 will work nicely. Jared’s experienced Diamontologists can help you find the right balance between the 4 Cs to design a custom emerald cut diamond ring that will turn heads.
POPULAR EMERALD CUT DIAMOND STYLES
A solitaire style is a common option for an emerald cut diamond ring because you won’t have to worry about choosing accent stones that fit properly. Some people like to include accent diamonds in the band but a plain, metal band works just as well. Halo type settings, while notoriously difficult to match with emerald cut diamonds, are possible and can give the ring a vintage appearance.
The most popular style, however, is the three stone emerald cut diamond ring. An emerald cut stone is nestled between two gems which could also be emerald cut, or a tapered baguette cut.
Emerald cut diamonds lend themselves to a vintage-inspired look which often informs the design of the ring as a whole.
