What to know about emerald cut diamonds
An emerald-cut diamond is a rectangular stone with cut corners and is one of the most popular and suggested engagement ring styles. Based on their long, elegant body alone, it’s easy to see their high appeal.
The History of the Emerald Cut Diamond
Despite possessing a modern look, the emerald-cut diamond is one of the oldest diamond shapes. With stylistic origins tracing back to the table cut of the 1500s, the shape was originally created for emerald stones in an attempt to prevent cracks and chipping.
Having gained popularity during the 1920’s Art Deco movement, it’s now extremely common to find emerald diamonds as the centre stone in vintage engagement rings.
