Tips For Buying An Emerald Engagement Ring

Sizzling Size — Because the top surface of an emerald-cut diamond is so expansive, emerald-cut engagement rings tend to look bigger; an emerald-cut diamond will look larger than a round-cut diamond of the same carat weight. That 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.

Long or Wide — Similarly to the oval-cut, emerald-cut engagement rings make women’s hands look more slender. Their elongated shape highlights the length of women’s fingers—a very elegant look for a bride-to-be.

Quality Counts — Due to the shape of emerald-cut diamonds, they will emphasize any inherent color in the stone. If that’s a problem, you may want to consider investing in a higher color grade. You may also want to choose a diamond with high clarity since the large table facet highlights visible inclusions in the stone’s center.

Mind the Length — While emerald-cut diamonds must be in a rectangular shape, the length-to-width ratio varies; the typical ratio is somewhere from 1.3 to 1.6. However, the choice of whether the ring should be longer or shorter is completely up to you and your loved one!

History of Emerald Engagement Rings

The emerald cut has been a favorite of jewelers since the 1500s, who used the cut to enhance the richness of colored gemstones. Specifically, the emerald cut is named because of the stone that is most often cut in this rectangular shape—the emerald. Eventually, jewelers realized that diamonds looked beautiful in this cut as well. Around 1920, when Art Deco's clean lines and symmetry were most admired, the emerald-cut diamond became even more popular. The cut was standardized around 1940 and has been a popular choice for engagement jewelry since then. Some of the world’s most famous celebrities have worn emerald-cut diamonds, like Elizabeth Taylor, and, in more modern times, Beyoncé. Clearly, an emerald-cut diamond engagement ring is an excellent choice for a lady with a distinct, strong personality.
