Jennifer Lopez’s Engagement Ring via Instagram @people
At Brilliant Earth, we’re always paying attention to the latest trends in engagement rings, and one that’s recently caught our eye (and the eyes of many celebrities!) is emerald cut diamonds.
A sophisticated rectangular shape with geometric facets, emerald diamonds are treasured for their elegant silhouette. With celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Lawrence, Beyoncé, Amal Clooney, and more all wearing emerald cut engagement rings, it is the most sought-after step cut fancy shape.
Emerald Cut Diamonds
Like other square or rectangular shapes, emerald diamonds are known as a step cut diamonds, which offer a different type of appeal from a classic round cut diamond. Step cut diamonds offer exceptional clarity and a distinctive look when set in engagement rings. Instead of the brilliance typically offered by a round diamond, step cut diamonds produce a prismatic reflection which creates a mirrored staircase look – hence the name!
