About Emerald and Diamond Rings
Because of the way that emerald crystals form, rectangular cuts are so common for emeralds that they’re known as emerald cuts, though square cuts are also common. Diamonds are cut into nearly every shape, so you get a contrast in the majority of emerald and diamond rings.
Emerald and Diamond Ring Designs
During the Art Deco and Edwardian periods, most emerald and diamond rings featured elaborate settings that combine several small diamonds with a few small emeralds for accents. Victorian, Art Nouveau, and Mid Century emerald and diamond rings generally feature three or four stones, usually but not always side by side.
Durability - Emeralds rate a 7.5-8 (out of 10) on the Mohs Hardness Scale, making them one of the more durable gemstones available. While emeralds can still be scratched or damaged if they are treated recklessly, good-quality emeralds will resist minor damage and can easily be worn every day through a range of activities.
- Art Deco Era - Emeralds square or rectangular shapes inspired many Art Deco jewelers’ geometric designs.
- Victorian Era - Victorian and earlier emerald and diamond rings often feature old mine cut diamonds, which have a softer sheen than contemporary cuts.
- Emerald Symbolism - Emeralds symbolize wisdom, the mysterious, wealth, and renewal, while diamonds symbolize eternity, purity, and truth. This makes a powerful combination for wedding, engagement, and anniversary rings.
