May people associate certain diamond cuts and ring styles with certain personalities, and the emerald cut engagement ring is known to portray the look of sophistication and elegance. At Hilltop Pawn in Virginia Beach, we strive to help our customers find the ring that they are looking for, and the emerald cut diamond is a popular choice for engagement rings, next to the round cut, cushion cut, and princess cut.
Due to their vintage and art-deco look, the emerald cut diamond is falling back into the category of trendy jewelry and popular engagement ring styles. The emerald cut is rectangular in shape, with cropped corners. With long lines and stepped facets, this is cut looks exceptionally lovely on long fingers. While the emerald cut doesn't "sparkle" like some others, the larger areas reflect light with brilliant flashes. The width vs. height on emerald cut can vary, but this cut creates the face of the diamond to be more open. Because of this, it is important to purchase this cut in higher graded diamonds, because the natural flaws of the stone can sometimes be more apparent. But don't worry! Generally speaking, emerald cut engagement rings are not as widely sold as round cuts, so they will usually run at a lower price for their weight, while maintaining the look of a larger diamond. One of the more popular styles of emerald cut engagement rings, is with a halo surrounding the center stone, and smaller diamonds cascading down the band of the ring. Many like the look of an eternity band, but buyer beware! These can cost up to three times as much, and can not be resized without compromising the ring's inegrity.
