The Perfect Cut
As you can likely guess, the emerald cut diamond earns its name from the shape’s first use in the process of cutting emerald gemstones and is known for its elegant cut, clarity, and versatility. If you’re thinking of this unique cut for your engagement ring consider these factors while shopping.
The step cut of this style gives the stone an architectural strength and sleek look as the parallel lines within the stone look similar to steps. When shopping for an emerald cut diamond you want to consider the length-to-width ration. The classic ratio is 1.50; however, the ratio can range from 1.3-1.6. Remember, the larger the ratio between the length and width of the diamond will make for a thinner, longer-looking stone.
