● Meet the emerald cut diamond
The emerald cut diamond owns a premium place among the popular fancy cuts in the diamond industry. The emerald cut diamond can be associated with a staircase because of the step cuts. Originally the emerald cut diamond was developed for emeralds and not for diamonds, thus the name. The emerald cut diamond is available in shapes ranging from square to rectangular. But as opposed to the other popular square or rectangular cuts the emerald is not cut for brilliance. It was cut in step cuts because the emeralds were difficult to cut due to the numerous inclusions. Yet the emerald cut gives the diamond a wider and shinier look, due to the longer lines compared to the round cut.
● Select the highest grade possible
The emerald cut diamond deserves a good quality diamond because of the open table in the middle of the diamond. With this open table or large facets, it is easier to see color and inclusions than with other diamond cuts. And unlike round diamonds, the emerald cut diamond is not graded on the cut quality by the GIA but only the symmetry and polish grades will be stated in the diamond grading report. In addition, it is recommended for an emerald cut diamond to stay above the H color and focus your diamond search on clarity VS1 and VS2 to decrease the visible inclusions or tones with the naked eye.
