An emerald cut diamond (not to be confused with an actual emerald) is one of the oldest diamond cuts still in use. It dates back to the 1500s when gem masters used the cut for both emeralds and diamonds. The step-cut facet reduces the pressure on the stone during the cutting process, making it less likely that the stone will chip or crack. While the cut goes back centuries, the name 'emerald-cut' dates to the 1920s.
Thanks to its clean, geometric lines, it became hugely popular during the Art Deco period. It was then adopted by some of the most influential women of the 20th century fashion scene, including Jackie Kennedy and Grace Kelly.
That popularity continues today, and other celebrities who have embraced this classic design include Angelina Jolie and Beyoncé. Elizabeth Taylor’s third husband gave her an emerald cut engagement ring that weighed in at an impressive 29.4 carats (she called it her ‘ice skating ring’).
Because it works equally well with a simple claw setting or a bezel design, emerald engagement rings are now among the most popular styles for brides-to-be.

Despite their popularity, they are quite rare and represent only about 3% of the world’s diamonds. That makes them a unique choice for women who want a classic design but with that added rarity value. You will pay a little more for an emerald-cut diamond engagement ring, but because the table (top) of the diamond is larger, you get a lot more bang for your buck. You’ll also get that wow factor that such an unusual stone brings.
One thing you’ll need to be careful of with an emerald cut engagement ring is the corners. This is the weakest spot on the stone and can chip if knocked hard. While the step-cut design means that it'll never be as dazzlingly brilliant as a round or pear-shaped diamond, they still have that exceptional clarity that makes them utterly mesmerising to look at.
Keep your emerald engagement ring looking its best by gently wiping it with a soft cloth occasionally. Avoid wearing it during sports or activities such as gardening, swimming, or doing the housework to prevent knocking those delicate corners.
