Emerald Cut Engagement Rings: Shop Our Collection of Stunning Emerald Cut Engagement Rings!

Emerald cut engagement rings are a popular way to reshape the classic diamond ring. The emerald cut diamond is one of the oldest diamond shapes. Its name derives from how its style of cut was used to enhance emeralds before being adopted by diamond cutters.

This style typically consists of 57 facets and boasts an elongated rectangular shape with cut-off corners. This shape comes with many different advantages for engagement rings that this article will get into.

Is an emerald cut diamond considered a precious gem?

White diamonds are the most valuable precious gem. Not only are they the most durable gemstone available, but their clear colour is indicative of how they are free from the kinds of imperfections that affect other gemstones. Coloured diamonds are still valuable, but they derive their colour from impurities and/or structural defects.

What other gemstones can be emerald cut?

While diamonds are the go to gemstones for emerald cuts, we have other gemstones for jewellery including aquamarine, topaz, amethyst, citrine, peridot, pink sapphire, emerald, etc.

Emerald Cut Diamond Education: Understanding the 4 Cs and Quality Factors

You can determine the quality of a diamond by observing the four Cs of cut, colour, clarity and carat. That is how we assess the quality of our gemstones and determine that they are of the highest quality possible before we sell them to you. 

In the following section, we will have a deep dive into what the 4 Cs are, what they mean and how they relate to yellow diamonds specifically. That way, you’ll know that you’re getting your money’s worth when it comes to yellow diamonds from Holdsworth Bros.


The quality of the emerald cut is important. A gem that has not been cut properly will appear asymmetrical and lose its vibrance due its inability to properly reflect light. 


The colour of diamonds is graded on a scale based on the intensity of their hue. We distinguish these grades as fancy light, fancy, intense, deep and vivid. The further to the right end of the spectrum a diamond is, the more valuable it is considered to be.

Additionally, diamonds can have different colour tints to them that affect their value. A pure coloured diamond is going to be more valuable than a diamond with an orange, brown or even green tint.


Funnily enough, a lack of imperfections in a gem to the naked eye aren’t always a guaranteed indicator of quality. Keep in mind, gemstones are a naturally occurring structure, so it’s very likely that a gemstone will feature imperfections (if not visible to the human eye, then at a microscopic level).

Gemstones with zero imperfections, including diamonds, could potentially be fakes. So, make sure that you buy your diamonds from a reputable supplier like Holdsworth Bros. where you can be sure that you’re receiving a good quality gemstone.


Carat is the unit of measurement for the physical weight of a gemstone, such as a diamond. This one is pretty straightforward; the higher a diamond’s carat, the heavier its weight and therefore the higher in value it is. 

Prices for gemstones, including diamonds, tend to be valued on a per carat basis, meaning that a flat rate is determined via the cut, colour and clarity of the diamond – and that flat rate is then multiplied by the carats to determine the gem’s overall price.  

Does this style of diamond fade?

One of the major benefits of a diamond is that its colours never fade, unlike sapphires that can lose their colour with age, improper care and prolonged exposure to sunlight. Of course, you still need to take care of your diamond if you want it to last a long time and retain its gorgeous appearance, but at least you have one less thing to worry about.

Which stone can be worn with an emerald cut engagement ring?

Because diamonds are usually white or even clear, they pair with all kinds of other gemstones. They can complement sapphires and rubies, or they can stand out on their own.

Does an emerald cut engagement ring look better with white or yellow gold?

This depends on both the colour of the diamond being used for your engagement ring, as well as your intent. Yellow gold creates a striking contrast with diamonds that have more intense colours, whereas white gold tends to emphasise the individual gems. You should choose the alloy for your band depending on where you want the eye to be drawn the most.

Emerald Cut vs. Other Diamond Shapes: Pros and Cons for Your Engagement Ring

Emerald cut diamonds are defined by their rectangular shape with step-cut facets, providing a unique and elegant appearance. What sets them apart from other diamonds shapes are their long, open facets that showcase exceptional clarity and a mesmerizing hall-of-mirrors effect. Pros of emerald cut include their sophisticated and timeless look, versatility, and ability to emphasize the diamond’s clarity. However, cons to consider are their lower brilliance compared to brilliant-cut diamonds and the potential to highlight inclusions more prominently. When choosing an engagement ring, weighing these pros and cons will help you determine if an emerald cut or another shape suits your preferences and style.
