Known for their sophisticated rectangular shape and geometric facets, the clean lines and angles of emerald diamonds make them an exceptional choice for the centerpiece of an engagement ring. Emerald cut diamonds are known as a step cut diamonds. Step cut diamonds offer a different type of beauty from a classic round cut diamond, offering exceptional clarity and a distinctive look when set in engagement rings. Step cut diamonds are either found in square or rectangular shapes, and their facets are rectilinear (made up of straight lines). This cut’s long, narrow facets produce a prismatic reflection as opposed to brilliance, evoking a house of mirrors or a staircase look—hence their name! With celebrities like Beyoncé, Amal Clooney, and formerly Kim Kardashian and Mariah Carey all wearing emerald cut engagement rings, the emerald cut is the most sought after step cut fancy shape! Emerald diamonds dazzle in understated solitaire and three stone settings, and bring a modern allure to antique and contemporary styles. Discover our favorite emerald cut engagement rings below!
