The emerald-cut diamond is rectangular in shape. It is fashioned with step-cut faceting; that is, it has rows of flat elongated facets, usually 48 to 50 in number, that resemble a four-sided staircase. The look of an emerald-cut diamond is subtle and understated yet extremely elegant and classy. What makes this shape different is its pavilion, which is cut with rectangular facets to create a unique optical appearance. Due to its larger, open table, this shape highlights the clarity of a diamond, making inclusions and color tinting more easily noticeable through the crisp clear elegant look of the emerald-cut diamond. If you are looking for a classically elegant design that subtlety portrays that natural beauty of the diamond as none other, the emerald-cut diamond is for you.
