The Basics: Emerald-Cut Diamonds

A traditional emerald cut is rectangular with a smooth top (or "table") and step-like facets and beveled corners. The emerald-cut is so-called because it's a popular cut for emerald gemstones.

The emerald-cut has three rows of parallel facets that surround the table. Like a round brilliant cut, emerald cuts normally have 58 facets: 25 on the crown, 25 on the pavilion and 8 on the girdle.

Emerald-cut diamonds have been described as regal and sophisticated. The clarity of a diamond with this cut is really special - the size of the table requires a diamond of exquisite clarity because inclusions are difficult to conceal.
