Introduction: What is an emerald cut diamond?
Emerald cuts are available in all colour grades, from colourless to faint yellow. However, the best emerald cuts are always the purest blue. The most desirable colours and prices are those in the range H to J. Fine blues are worth a premium, as are near-colorless stones. The top grade is green, from J to Light Green.
The most outstanding feature of the “ideal” emerald cut is its dispersion (the amount it breaks up light into spectral colours), which is far higher than the other common shapes – namely round, oval and marquise. The ideal emerald cut should have a VS1 clarity grade or better, and the higher the colour or purity of the stone, the better its dispersion tends to be.
What are the Types of Emerald Cut Diamonds?
The various types of emerald cut diamonds are classified by the amount and type of grain that appear in the stone. [Write the classification here if it is not apparent.] Type 1 – has no visible grain; it is almost colourless. It has the highest amount of brilliance and fire. Type 2 – appears to have ‘C’ shapes all over the stone it is a bit darker than type 1 and has more fire. Type 3 – this stone can be dark green, medium dark green or almost colourless. It has smaller, less [grain] than type 1 and 2
Emerald cut diamonds are often confused with the emerald shape which is very similar in appearance. The difference is that emerald cut diamonds have a diamond base.
What is the Better Size for an Emerald Cut Diamond?
The better size for an emerald cut diamond is any between 1.01 carats and 1.03 carats, although most designer diamond rings are cut to fit a ring with a diameter of approximately 0.93 carat [6 points = 1/3 inch]. It should be remembered that, although a larger stone may often be more beautiful, it is also more likely to be damaged.
If you are looking for the best emerald cut diamond, then it is important to consider the origins of your diamond. Good quality emerald cut diamonds may be found in Colombia and Russia.
To measure your diamond, we recommend that you use a jeweler’s loup, one which will allow you to weigh it. Weights should be taken at certain locations within the diamond. In order to determine if your stone weighs more than 1 carat, there are a few easy tests that can be done at home.
If you are going to have your stone set as a gift, it is important to discuss your choice with the jeweler. Be sure that you get a ring that will match the image or design you have in mind.

An emerald cut diamond is a very popular and important style of diamond. They are available in all colours and can be found across the price spectrum by choosing a lower clarity grade or smaller size. These diamonds are often used in elaborate pieces of jewellery designed to show off the stone. However, they can also be used to create your own unique piece of jewellery, by choosing a single polished diamond from the cabochon and matching it with other stones, setting it in gold and silver. The emerald cut diamond is available in a range of sizes and grades, but the higher the clarity, the lower the price will be. This article will first look at what an emerald cut diamond is. It will then look at the different grading systems that are used to determine their value, before looking at all of the different types of collection you are able to put together using this style of gem.
First we must understand what exactly an emerald cut diamond is, as it may not always be clear from how they are marketed. Jewellery companies will often use the term “emerald cut diamond” as a catch-all term to refer to any diamond that has been cut in the classic emerald shape. However, they are different from other shapes of diamond that share some of the same characteristics. The emerald cut is based on an oval shape, which is what gives it the name. It is this dish-shaped gemstone that is often bezel set into jewellery to give it a different effect. Bezel settings are a style of mounting that is designed to show off the stone. They also have a perfect flat surface that can be engraved for personalisation. Bezels are most often used on rings and bracelets because of this special effect. The emerald cut diamond is also available in round and marquise shapes, but these will be discussed later in more detail as they are popular in their own right.
