For sheer class and elegance, it’s hard to surpass emerald cut engagement rings. This simple yet stunning style of diamond has long been popular among discerning consumers. As the name suggests, it was originally created for emeralds. The stepped, rectangular design with cropped corners is perfect for these green stones, which are not suited to more complex cuts because they are vulnerable to breakage. However, it wasn’t long before people realised that the shape was ideal for diamonds too.
Its long lines and broad facets mean the emerald cut is less fiery than the round brilliant, but when it catches the light, it can really shine. There is something powerful about the simplicity of this cut, and it is a true celebration of these precious stones. When you’re searching for emerald cut diamond rings, bear in mind that quality is crucial. The openness of the shape means that it’s easier to spot any flaws with the naked eye. Luckily, here at Marlow’s Diamonds we only sell gems of the very highest standard, so you can rest assured that your ring will be beautiful.
One of the best things about these gems is the fact that they lend themselves to both simple, understated items of jewellery and to extravagant showstoppers. Before you go ahead and purchase emerald cut diamond engagement rings for that special someone in your life, you’ll need to decide whether she would prefer a modest design or a real head turner. For something simple and elegant, you could opt for a metal band featuring an emerald cut stone in a four-claw setting. Alternatively, you could choose a lavish design showcasing an emerald cut diamond surrounded by round brilliant cut gems.
You’ll also need to take your pick from yellow gold, white gold and platinum for the band. Bear in mind that yellow gold may be perfect if you want a traditional looking ring, while white gold and platinum are better if you’re keen to buy a more contemporary style product.
As long as you choose a design that reflects your partner’s tastes, you’re bound to impress. Emerald cut rings can be treasured for a lifetime. This beautiful style of diamond never goes out of fashion and it will look just as appealing in 50 years as it does today.
