Emerald cut diamonds were actually a shape originally designed for cutting emeralds, which is how this cut of diamond got its name. The emerald cut is less brilliant than round cut diamonds, which is a result of its long lines. However, it can still be equally as stunning, depending on the color and clarity of the stone, as well as the skill of the cutter.
Engagement rings with emerald cut diamonds are both sophisticated and elegant, and can still show off sparkle and fire with more dramatic prisms of light. Because the emerald cut diamond tends to show more flaws, it is important to purchase the highest quality stone you can afford. Due to the broadness of the cut that seems to draw the eye inward, flaws are more readily seen by the naked eye.
Economical Emerald Cut Diamonds
The good news is that emerald cut diamonds tend to be less expensive than other diamonds. While the emerald cut is not as traditional as the round cut, nor as trendy as the princess cut, it can still be as stunning, without costing you as much money. For instance, if you take a round brilliant diamond and compare it to an emerald diamond, with the same carat weight, clarity, cut, and color, you can expect to spend less on the emerald, with savings totaling a thousand dollars, sometimes more.
