The Beginning of Emerald Cut Engagement Rings

As the name suggests, the emerald cut was intended for use with emeralds. Jewelers realized that emeralds shone more brightly when cut in "steps." That means the top of the emerald is flat, but the sides are cut downward in rectangular facets. The large flat area on top highlights the stone better than other types of cuts especially in emerald cut engagement rings. Jewelers soon realized gemstones other than emeralds, such as diamonds, could also benefit from the emerald cut.

Emerald cut engagement rings have little room for imperfections. Since the top of the gemstone is perfectly flat and exposed, imperfections are more obvious. When selecting a certified diamond for emerald rings, keep this in mind. Emerald cut engagement rings are elongated, so they sometimes contain accent stones in addition to the main gemstone. The elongated appearance of emerald cut engagement rings also look best on long, slender fingers. The shape of the fingers and the ring complement each other perfectly.

Styles and Settings for Emerald Cut Engagement Rings

Although emerald cut engagement rings come in a variety of designs, shapes, and sizes, they are not suitable for every kind of setting. Emerald cut engagement rings have fragile edges, and can be prone to damage. The most popular (and safest according to some jewelers) setting for emerald cut engagement rings is the four prong setting or six prong setting.

The delicate edges of emerald cut engagement rings require sufficient protection. The setting most suitable for this job is the four or six prong setting. Prongs are attached to the engagement ring band, and look similar to claws as they clutch the gemstone(s) securely in place. Not only is this setting great for emerald cut engagement rings, itís also easy to clean and allows greater visibility for the gemstones. A downside is that prong settings can get caught on clothes and other material - just a word of warning.

Emerald cut engagement rings draw more attention to the gemstone than other ring settings. Since the emerald cut leaves one face of the gemstone intact, flaws or color variations are more noticeable. Before purchasing an emerald cut ring, have Novori view the gemstone before itís placed in the ring. Novori has thousands of loose diamonds and gemstones that can be examined before theyíre set in a ring. However, you can purchase emerald cut rings that are ready to wear.

Are Emerald Cut Engagement Rings Expensive?

The emerald cut isnít difficult to achieve. Itís typically less expensive than the traditional round cut, which makes it attractive to budget shoppers. The gemstones in emerald cut engagement rings also have a tendency to look larger and more expensive than they really are. There arenít any cons to choosing an emerald cut ring.
