Emerald-Cut Diamond or Moissanite Engagement Rings
The emerald-cut diamond evokes a tradition of artistry and nostalgia. Its step-cut facets allow for a stunning glimpse into the symmetrical center of the gemstone. Like a hall of mirrors, the parallel surfaces are strong and reflective, giving the light a place to play inside the stone. The rectangular shape is softened by its cut corners, allowing for a bold yet elegant silhouette.
A Centuries-Old Story
The emerald-cut moissanite engagement ring displays one of the oldest diamond cuts in the world. In the 16th century, stonecutters originally used the emerald faceting pattern on green emeralds; this cut reduced the amount of pressure on the softer, more brittle emeralds and allowed them to be successfully cut without breaking. Eventually, diamond cutters began experimenting with the stunning emerald cut and adopted the style.
Reminiscent of the 1920s art deco movement, the emerald-cut lab diamond engagement ring features geometric shapes, parallel lines, and symmetry. We imagine Daisy Buchanan might have worn an emerald-cut engagement ring to one of Gatsby’s parties, along with her other shimmering, decorative accessories. An emerald-cut diamond is vintage inspired with a modern simplicity.
