Emerald-Cut Engagement Rings
The emerald cut is a rectangular-style step cut that reveals the clarity and flawlessness of diamonds. The top of an emerald-cut gem creates a window to the internal characteristics of the stone. For emerald rings, the style of this cut reveals the color variation and character of the popular green gem. If you prefer the strong, angular design of an emerald cut (popularized by celebrities like Grace Kelly, Angelina Jolie, and Beyonce) then an emerald cut design could be for you. Although round cuts are commonly preferred to display diamond brilliance, emerald and oval cuts tend to elongate fingers more than round cuts. Emerald-cut gems often create the illusion of being larger than their carat weight, as well.
