Diamonds became popular as ornaments in jewelry in the 1400's and the different techniques and styles of diamond cuts such as the Emerald Cut Diamond were gradually developed over many years.
An emerald is definitely one of the most attractive and most popular gemstones all over the world. Colored in bright shiny green color which is so unique that it is simply known as the emerald green, this stone is also one of the most expensive gemstones found in the world today.
The tradition of wearing engagement rings, including those with an Emerald cut diamond, symbolizes the promise of a future together which is sealed with the giving and accepting of a ring.
One of the first things to remember is that, emerald engagement rings and emerald cut diamond engagement rings are completely different things.
An emerald engagement ring is the one made using emerald as the center stone. Whereas, emerald cut engagement rings are diamond rings where the diamond is cut in a square shape (which is a popular shape of emerald).
An emerald cut diamond is distinguished by its rectangular shape and steeped facets. The edges of this cut look like stairs. This cut was originally designed for colored stones, however, its sophisticated look quickly became popular and was brought into the diamond world.
The facets on an Emerald Cut Diamonds are cut in steps, parallel to the edges which could be described as a pyramid with its top chopped off. These diamonds are bright, clear and shiny in appearance as its facets usually cover the length or width of the stone. The style is highly effective, especially in colored stones.
The emerald cut diamond reflects less light than the standard brilliant cuts and needs to be of the highest quality as any inclusions can be visible. An emerald cut diamond engagement rings with the same carat body and also grading as a round brilliant will cost about one thousand dollars less.
Emerald cuts look especially wonderful on long, tapered fingers. If your girl has long slender fingers this cut will enhance the length of her fingers, but if her fingers are shorter then this cut may seem a little disproportionate to her fingers.
It never goes out of style, and also it will fit the young and also the old.
