The emerald cut diamond is a beautiful and sleek design that is a favourite of many people including celebrities such as Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez. But what makes the emerald cut diamond so attractive? Let’s find out..
The emerald cut has been around for centuries but it was first used to cut the famous green coloured gemstone Emerald, hence the term ‘emerald cut’. Emeralds are vulnerable and can be easily damaged during the cutting and polishing process so gem cutters came up with a cut that helped minimise this damage. Diamond cutters experimented with this cut on diamonds and found it to have a stunning effect!

The emerald cut we see today is a cut that leaves no room for imperfections. It’s a type of step cut that has long lines, allowing you to see right into the diamond. These long cuts give off bright flashes of light rather than a sparkle like we see in other diamond cuts, like the round brilliant. Any imperfections in the diamond are easily spotted and the diamond colour is more noticeable, so when choosing an emerald cut diamond engagement ring it’s a good idea to pay attention to the diamonds colour and clarity.
