When looking for truly unique engagement rings, nothing says vintage class like the emerald cut. Dating back to the Elizabethan era, the stone’s elongated, regal lines give a feeling of historic royalty and wealth. As the name suggests, this cut was originally created with emeralds in mind. It was too good not to try on other stones though, so diamonds were soon cut this way, leading to the popularity of emerald cut engagement rings.

If you’re looking for something that stands out, emerald cut diamond engagement rings can be just the thing to make friends green with envy. Chances are you won’t spot anyone with the same ring with this bold cut of diamond.

There are so many ways that an emerald cut diamond engagement ring can look fabulous, so consider your options before you start designing your own. To let that signature rectangular shape really shine, choose a four claw solitaire design with a plain band. Keeping it simple is the best way to put a modern spin on your engagement ring. Fashions go in cycles, so choosing vintage can be the perfect way to achieve that classic look from day one. Whether you decide on a halo, trilogy or solitaire setting, the colours, shapes and overall complexity of the ring should reflect individual personality and taste. We recommend choosing as high a clarity of diamond as possible because an emerald cut is not designed to conceal flaws.
