What is Emerald Cut Diamond?
Emerald cut diamonds is a distinctive and elegant class of diamond cuts. Unlike many other brilliant cuts, an emerald cut diamond is called a step cut. Its facets aren’t the traditional comet or star shaped ones found in other loose diamonds, rather the emerald cut has little rectangular facets that look like stairs or steps.
The facets of this ladder cut are certainly bright, but they are more subdued. It is no exaggeration to say that the charm of the emerald cut lies in its long and graceful body. The appeal of an emerald cut diamond ring is that it appears larger than other stones. This means that they are ideal for engagement rings that stand out.

Emerald Diamond Origins and Styles
The origins of the emerald cut style can be traced back to the table cut, which was popular in the 16th century.
Emerald cut has become more and more popular over time because it prevents the stone from chipping by reducing the pressure when cutting it. The term “emerald cut” was not officially used until the 1920s. At that time, emerald cuts were very popular. With the rise of Art Deco, the cut received even more attention.
Clean lines and symmetry were favored, and many people chose emerald-cut diamond jewelry to match. Since then, emerald cut engagement rings have been a favorite of women all over the world. Emerald cut diamonds are often thought to date back to the 1920s, but they have been around since the late Middle Ages. This was before diamonds were used in jewelry.
Meaning of Emerald Diamonds
People began to “improve” diamonds that nature had designed. By polishing the faces of the octahedral crystal, they were able to create uniform facets with fewer streaks. This was called a point cut and was practiced until the middle of the 14th century.
In the 15th century, the tip cutting technique was greatly perfected. The table cut, in which less than half and octahedron is cut, became widespread. Around this time, some table-cut diamonds also had a spoon, and the importance of the spoon was also recognized.
Shortly after, four corner facets were created. It is also called “old eight-cut” and “old single-cut”. These cups had no shine or fire, they were just hard. The cut diamonds on the table were black in people’s eyes, just like in the paintings of the time. This is why colored gems (such as sapphires and rubies) were so popular in ancient times. In the 1940s, with the development of diamond saws and other tools, emerald cutting became more popular, allowing more cuts to be made. The emerald cut replaced the step cut because jewelers and diamond cutters realized that they could add “more fire” to a diamond by using the emerald cut.
The Different Between Asscher Cut and Emerald Cut
Both the Asscher cut and the Emerald is known for their vintage brilliance and stepped facets. For those unfamiliar with the diamond world, it can be difficult to distinguish between the two forms. Many people think that an Asscher cut is simply a square emerald cut, but it is not. The easiest way to tell them apart is by the shape of the loose diamond. An emerald cut diamond has an upright, rectangular shape.
Emerald Cut Carat
An Asscher cut is square or nearly square when the aspect ratio is 1.00 or 1.06. The emerald cut has an aspect ratio between 1.50 and 1.75 and has a more slender and elongated shape. These diamonds are also cut in different ways. The Asscher cut doesn’t have as wide an opening on the chart as the Emerald cut.
The width and openness of this table give the Emerald Cut its classic and elegant look. With the emerald cut, it is very easy to see the flaws and inclusions. For this reason, the clarity of an emerald cut should always be high.
