So you have recently decided to put some money aside and buy a loose noble gem? You wanted something to compliment your accessories collection and give you a touch of elegance when needed? You could also be buying it for a significant other or may a potential one? In all cases, you come to know that your budget can fit diamond in it. You were, however, hoping for something like emerald. You’re mostly fond of the way emeralds are cut, more than anything about them as a particular gem. You consider the emerald but then you see diamonds sparkling in a window and you know what you want. The better news you realize after a little chat with the shop owner is that you can have the best of both worlds. Diamonds can most certainly now be cut the way emeralds are!
With that in mind, you check out the emerald cut diamonds and their specifications. It turns out that they give off a very different kind of light than the round one. Emerald cut diamonds are made in a way that creates micro opposing mirrors as a prestigious hallway. They tend to fit in a larger visual perception surface such that the same weight of diamond will look bigger as an emerald cut than as a round cut. Some diamond experts suggest that only 3% of the diamond sold around the world is emerald cut. This is good news if you are someone who is after uniqueness and standing out with your ring. The emerald cut has quite a unique effect on the hand, sort of like extending its sleek design to its surrounding. Furthermore, with the same principal of yield from raw diamond applied to princess cuts, the emerald cut tends to be cheaper than the round cut, another bonus if you’re already in love with how it looks like!
Now there is a small point to be cautious of if deciding on an emerald cut (maybe consider a bonus halo for it as well?), flaws visibility. Just like the princess cut, emerald cuts are more likely to show any natural flaws more than the round one for example. Consequently, it becomes absolutely critical that you look for a good quality cut when looking for an emerald. Now this is not always easy to find, something that might affect the lower price advantage mentioned earlier. Finally, let’s think of some bits and pieces about personal taste. It is true that emerald do not shine as much as round cuts, but this is an advantage to many who are not fans of ‘loud’ rings. It is all about what you want hugging your knuckles for a good period of time.
