Frequently asked questions about emerald cut engagement rings
Choosing an Emerald cut engagement ring means you are drawn looks that exude timelessness and strength. Those who choose an Emerald cut engagement ring love its historic appeal, clean lines, and elegance. They likely have more classic taste, but want something slightly different than a traditional Round. These individuals often want a look that is powerful and long-lasting.
There are only a few Emerald cut wedding ring options. A Five Stone Band with Emeralds or a Tetrad Ring with Emeralds are the best options for incorporating this diamond shape into your wedding ring set. All other diamond-accented wedding rings feature Round or Baguette shaped diamonds instead. Baguettes feature the same step cut facets as an Emerald cut ring but in a slimmer, more elongated form.
The most important way to pair your Emerald shaped engagement ring with a wedding band is to try the two on together to ensure a comfortable fit. A diamond expert can assist you in finding a match depending on your style of ring.
Depending on the setting, many wedding bands like a Flat or Round Band, or diamond-accented Infinity, Devotion, and petite Eternity Bands will pair nicely. Depending on the carat weight and size of your Oval, you may need a style that pairs flush with your engagement ring. Certain styles, like a Curator Band, might brush against the elongated diamond’s edges.
Emerald cut engagement rings have always attracted attention due to the diamond shape’s clean edges and mesmerizing “hall-of-mirrors” effect. But recently, with many celebrities choosing this shape for themselves, Emerald diamond rings are more popular than ever before. The stars who choose this shape seem to love its elongated form that maximizes carat weight and creates a substantial look and feel.
A 1 carat Emerald cut diamond is big enough to garner lots of attention. Because of its elongated form, it will appear larger on the finger than a Round Brilliant of the same carat weight. While carat weight should be decided entirely by personal preference and budget, this squared shape is all the more stunning and substantial-looking in higher carat weights.
Even though an Emerald is slightly elongated, it should pair well with most wedding ring styles and not snag or scratch. For ensured comfort, create your wedding ring stack with the help of a diamond expert. Most often, individuals choose to stack their Emerald cut engagement ring with a wedding band in a similar style, same metal color, or both.
For those looking for a unique Emerald cut engagement ring to stand out, try multiple bands or additional diamonds. The Twisted Classic, Double Band, or Duet are examples of engagement ring settings that stand apart. The Five Stone Heirloom or Toi et Moi pair more VRAI created diamonds with the Emerald cut for a dramatic look.
Both Baguette and Emerald cut diamonds feature step-cut facets that create a hall-of-mirrors effect when reflecting light. Both diamond shapes are also rectangular in form. But an Emerald cut diamond’s proportions are quite different; the ratio of an Emerald VRAI created diamond, for example, is 1.45 : 1.
This is one reason why Emerald cut diamonds are better as a center stone in an engagement ring setting, while the thinner Baguette is better as an accent or side stone.
