Emerald Cut Diamonds emerald cut diamond

The distinguishing feature of the Emerald cut diamond engagement ring is the shape of its crown facets (top), which are cut with chiseled rectangular facets that are step cut to create a unique optical appearance. Due to its larger more open table, this shape highlights the clarity of a diamond. If you choose an emerald-cut diamond engagement ring with a lower clarity grade, such as SI, be sure to review the clarity plot on the diamond certificate. An emerald cut has 50 facets.
