All Eyes on Emerald Cut Engagement Rings

Cut to showcase diamonds’ spectacular clarity, the emerald cut is the most celebrated step-cut gemstone shape.

Step cut diamonds are typically square or rectangular diamonds that have been cut in long parallel facets that prioritize a diamond’s spectacular depth and clarity over sparkle. This sleek diamond shape has long been celebrity favorite, and icons like Grace Kelly, Jennifer Lopez, Amal Clooney, Victoria Beckham, and Jennifer Lawrence have all sported stunning emerald diamond rings.

Because of their elongated shape and distinctive faceting, emerald diamonds are universally flattering and work well with many engagement ring styles. For example, solitaires emphasize the clean lines of the emerald cut, while pairing with baguette diamonds or pavé side stones with an emerald diamond maximizes sparkle.

The rectangular facets of emerald-cut gemstones create a chic and elegant look, which is perfectly complemented in these ring styles. Read on to discover some of the emerald cut engagement rings we are loving lately!
