While brilliant cut diamonds and princess cut diamonds are modern favorites for brides to be, those looking for a unique and timeless ring are now opting for emerald cut engagement rings. Distinctive in shape, an emerald cut diamond is usually rectangular with cropped corners. Set amongst claws, the diamond doesn’t so much sparkle like a brilliant cut diamond as opposed to lending itself to more dramatic flashes of light. It is a combination of this dramatic and elegant appearance and the fact that it is a less “common” choice that makes emerald cut engagement rings so special.
When looking for an emerald cut diamond or emerald cut diamond ring, be sure to be discerning about the quality of the diamonds. Given the fact that the cut is so open, flaws and colour in the diamond are easily identified by the naked eye. Emerald cut diamonds can look stunning presented both as a solitaire as well as with accent stones and can be used in bold modern settings as well as classic, timeless settings. However you choose to set your emerald cut diamond, compared to many other modern day brides- you’ll be sure to be wearing a unique ring!
