What Is an Emerald Cut Diamond?

Configured in a rectangular shape, emerald diamonds feature several parallel facets that create a shining, step-like appearance within. These bold stones are popular for people with stand-out personalities and styles to match. Their understated elegance gives them a unique and timeless look. Emerald diamonds are often chosen due to their expansive appearance; the diamonds appear far larger than their carat weight indicates.

Emerald cuts are step-cut stones which means they have facets shaped like squares and trapezoids. This is different from a radiant cut which has brilliant facets that show off true sparkle.

Are Emerald Cut Diamonds More Expensive?

An emerald cut diamond is generally the least expensive out of any other shape. This is because there is less waste when cutting the rough diamond.

Asscher-cut diamonds are also less expensive because they are similar in shape and are also step cuts. If you have a budget or are looking for a beautiful diamond with a slightly lower price point, then we recommend shopping for an emerald cut diamond.

Remember that buying a lab grown diamond can save you 20-30% compared to a mined diamond. So, a lab grown emerald cut diamond is definitely the way to go!

Emerald Cut Vs. Round Brilliant Cut Stones

Emerald diamonds and round-cut diamonds are both stunning diamond shapes. The biggest difference between the two is that emerald cut diamonds have an elongated shape, making their center stone appear more prominent than most other diamond shapes with the same carat weight. The great thing about emerald cut stones is that they are durable, making them perfect for everyday wear.

On the other hand, round diamonds are circular and more expensive compared to an emerald cut diamond. Diamond cutters have to cut off more of the rough diamond to achieve round diamond proportions, making a round brilliant cut more expensive.

Are Emerald Cut Diamonds Popular?

Compared to other diamond cuts, emerald cuts have been gaining in popularity while still remaining unique. If you want to stand out with an elegant choice, an emerald diamond is the way to go.

If you like elongated diamond shapes but don't want an oval-cut diamond, an emerald-cut diamond is perfect for your style. It features clean lines and soft edges in contrast to a princess cut that has pointed corners.

Paris Hilton, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyonce have all shown off stunning emerald cut diamonds. You'll definitely have a one-of-a-kind diamond that will wow your significant other.

Emerald Cut Engagement Rings

Emerald cut diamonds are filled with beauty and offer a classic style with their elongated shape and parallel lines. Its radiant cut diamonds make it the perfect setting for an engagement ring. This diamond shape is quite versatile, allowing you to choose the best setting of your choice. One of the most popular settings for an emerald cut engagement ring includes the classic three-stone ring setting, which features a large center stone with trapezoid cut diamonds on the side. Another excellent setting for an emerald cut engagement ring is a stunning band wrapped in pavé diamonds, this gives the diamond shape a totally timeless finish with that extra sparkle.

Emerald Cut Diamonds: The 4 C’s

It’s important to have a good understanding of how the 4 C’s relate to emerald-cut diamonds. Just like with any other diamond cut, understanding the necessary information helps you make the best decisions for your ring.

Cut — The shape of a diamond refers to its physical appearance, while the cut refers to how well the diamond’s features interact with light. There is not an official GIA rating for emerald diamonds, but Clean Origin does provide a rating system for some of our emerald diamonds to help you gauge how well they shine. Keep in mind that due to their unique cut, emeralds provide a hall-of-mirrors effect rather than the sparkle of a round brilliant diamond.

Clarity — When it comes to clarity, which refers to how many inclusions and blemishes a diamond has, emerald-cut diamonds need to be carefully examined. Each diamond will have a different amount of flaws, ranging from SI2 (having the largest amount) to VVS1 (having the least). Emerald diamonds are especially likely to show any inclusions due to the large table facets that highlight visible inclusions in their centers. It is essential that you pay close attention to the clarity grade of your emerald-cut diamond. If you’re worried about your loved one spotting a flaw, choose a higher clarity rating.

Color — When you review your choice of diamond, color actually refers to the absence of color. Or, to put it more simply, the higher the grade, the less color the diamond has. Clean Origin only offers diamonds from J to D, though there are diamonds with color from Z (containing the most color) to D (containing the least color). Emerald diamonds tend to retain their color, reflecting any color within. If a warmer color is a problem, you may want to consider investing in a higher color grade.

Carat — One of the best qualities of emerald rings is that they tend to look much larger than their carat weight due to their expansive top surfaces. This benefit means you can purchase a diamond that appears bigger than its carat weight for an engagement ring at an affordable price. You can also purchase a lower-carat weight with the same appearance as a higher-carat gemstone. It’s a win-win purchase either way — and when you consider that a lab grown diamond can save you 20-30% on the price, it makes sense to increase carat weight even more.

Tips for Buying Emerald Cut Diamonds

Like many rectangular and square diamond shapes, there is room for adjustment when it comes to exact appearance. While emerald cut diamonds must be in a rectangular shape, you may alter the exact length-to-width ratio; attractive ratios lie somewhere between 1.3 and 1.6. While a longer emerald shape will make your partner's fingers appear longer, a shorter stone will often appear bolder; the look you choose is completely dependent on your loved one’s style.

Why Choose Lab Grown Emerald Cut Diamonds?

Lab grown emerald cut diamonds and mined emerald cut diamonds have identical chemical constructions and appearances. When comparing the two, you will notice the same qualities in cut, clarity, color, and carat. You’ll also have to make a decision about the length-to-width ratio you prefer.

No matter what style you choose, a lab grown diamond will save you money that you can use to upgrade the quality or size of the diamond or purchase an extra stunning band.
