While you’ll find most emeralds boast this exquisite shape, only 5% of the world’s diamonds feature an emerald cut. This makes them incredibly rare and endlessly impressive. Here are a few distinctive characteristics that set emerald cut diamonds apart from the rest:
- Noteworthy Appearance. Emerald cut gemstones feature a rectangular shape that boasts a length-to-width ratio of approximately 1.5. Look inside, and you’ll find straight, linear facets as well as chiseled step cuts.
- Cropped Corners. These rectangular stones rarely feature pointed corners. Instead, each of the four corners is cropped to prevent the diamond from fracturing.
- Incredible Clarity. The clarity of an emerald cut diamond is of the utmost importance. Because of their unique cut, inclusions and blemishes will be far more noticeable than in a round or oval cut stones.
- Larger Surface Area. If you’re looking for a gemstone that boasts an impressive surface area, you’re in luck. Emerald cut diamonds have a larger surface area than round cut diamonds and will appear at least 5% larger to the naked eye.
