Emerald-Shaped Diamonds

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

Emerald-Shaped Diamonds - The 4 C’s

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 the amount of inclusions and blemishes in a diamond, emerald-shaped 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. If you’re worried about your loved one spotting a flaw, choose a higher clarity rating.

Color — When you review your choices of diamond, color refers to the absence of color. 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, or you can 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.

Buyers Tips for Emerald-Shaped 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 her fingers appear longer, a shorter stone will often appear bolder, but the look you choose is completely up to your loved one’s style.


Lab-Grown Emerald-Shaped Diamonds

Lab-grown emerald-shaped diamonds and mined emerald-shaped diamonds have identical chemical constructions and appearances. When comparing the two, you will look for 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. However, because lab-grown diamonds rely on a shorter supply chain, they offer the same qualities as mined diamonds at a 20-30% lower price, empowering you to add that extra carat or pavè band.

Often confused with cut, the shape of a diamond is the physical appearance that it takes. The most popular shape is the round brilliant.
The cut of a diamond determines how effectively light that enters the stone is refracted within and reflected back through the top of the diamond, providing sparkle. The best cut grade is defined as Ideal, followed by Excellent, Very Good, Good, and Fair. Fancy shape stones often do not receive cut grades and will be listed as 'None.'
Carat refers to the actual weight of a diamond and is a unit of measure equal to 0.2 grams. In all diamonds, carat weight is a large contributor to the price of the stone.
The color in diamonds is actually the absence of color, graded on an alphabetical scale from D to Z, with D being a colorless diamond and Z being yellow.
Clarity measures the amount of inclusions or imperfections found in a diamond. The best clarity is VVS1 followed by VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, and SI2. Although other levels of clarity exist, we only carry diamonds with quality we can stand behind.
