The emerald cut isn’t reserved for only the verdant gem; this clarity-flaunting cut has been a diamond’s choice form since the 1940s. And an emerald-cut diamond’s BFF? Pavé, of course!
The popularity of emerald-cut diamond engagement rings is rising as style-savvy ring shoppers draw inspiration from the glamour of days past. This retro, stepped shape displays a striking “hall of mirrors” effect that gives emerald-cut diamond engagement rings a truly unique shine.
Emerald-cut diamonds can rock any setting, and pavé is top of the list. A pavé setting’s small, round sparklers peerlessly complement an emerald-cut diamond’s rectangular shape.
Emerald-Cut Diamond FYI:
- An emerald-cut diamond’s limited facets tend to reveal inclusions, making it the perfect cut for flaunting a diamond’s clarity.
- Emerald-cut diamonds reveal color more easily than other shapes do, so choose a high color grade if you’re setting your diamond in white metal. However, setting a “warmer” diamond in yellow or rose gold will make the diamond appear more colorless.
- An emerald-cut diamond’s length creates the optical illusion of elegantly “elongating” the wearer’s fingers.
