Let’s Get Technical
While the word emerald may conjure up images of a green stone, an emerald cut diamond is not that. It refers to the distinct shape that is cut from the most blemish-free section of the rough stone. The precision of a master craftsman creates a rectangular shape, with chiseled step cuts running in parallel lines down the stone.
Emerald cut diamonds usually have 57 facets. 25 are cut on the crown, the upper section of the stone. The crown is topped off by the table, the flat surface where the light enters the diamond and the magic of reflected lights begins. A further 32 facets are cut into the pavilion, or the lower part of the stone under the girdle. To add stability, the corners are usually cropped.
Let’s Rather be Non-Technical
This diamond does not sparkle and shimmer like a round cut or pear cut. Instead, the long clean lines and facets offer a flash of brilliance with every movement. This is understated elegance that is not in-your-face, but at the same time cannot be missed. An emerald cut is bold and distinctive, offering a hall-of-mirrors effect that enhances the diamond’s clarity and color. In a few words, it is graceful, gracious, tasteful, charming, and ultra-refined.
The symbolism of the Number 4
Being a rectangle, one is immediately drawn to the symbolism of the number 4. Think – The 4 seasons, the 4 phases of the moon, the 4 cardinal points of a compass, the 4 elements of Fire, Water, Earth, and Air.
It is all about stability, balance, structure, and completeness. The emerald cut defines a prestigious symbol of Love with powerful elements to carry you and your partner into a long-lasting relationship filled with joy.
Why Do Brides-To-Be Love This Shape?

The longer, rectangular shape means that your diamond looks larger carat for carat.
This versatile cut can be anything you desire. Love vintage? Go for a vintage setting that will make Grandma smile. Love modern? This cut looks just as exquisite. Do you!
Rectangular shapes offer more finger coverage while slimming and elongating your hand.
