What are Emerald Cut Engagement Rings?
Emerald-cut diamonds are diamonds that have long, rectangular facets. Visually appearing as parallel lines, their “step cut” facets (“step cut” meaning a cut that comprises rectangular facets that ascend the crown and descent the pavilion in “steps”) create a hypnotizing, mirror-like effect.
A standout characteristic of emerald cut diamonds is that the cut highlights the diamond’s color and clarity, as these two Cs are showcased most apparently through the geometry of an emerald cut. For instance, an emerald-cut diamond with a poor color grade will clearly show a yellowish tint. Due to the “step cut” of these diamonds, the table (aka the top or surface of the stone) provides a clear, unobstructed view into the stone’s center, making any inclusions the stone may have very visible, which is important to note when reviewing the grading of your diamond. Here at Jean Dousset, we do the work for you by exclusively working with the top 1% of diamonds, picking only the most ideal stones according to our strict diamond criteria.

History of the Emerald Cut Ring
The emerald cut has an expansive history, with its stylistic origins tracing back to the table cut that rose to popularity in the 1500s. As for why stonecutters changed the name of the cut to “emerald”—they realized the geometry of this style of cut reduced pressure during the cutting process of the gemstone known as the emerald, leading to fewer chips in the green gemstones. Diamond cutters adopted the technique not long after and by the 1920s, during the heyday of Art Deco, the emerald cut became popular for its stylish symmetry.
Over 100 years later, the emerald cut continues to be a favorite among pop culture’s most glamorous tenants, from Amal Clooney and Jennifer Lopez to Victoria Beckham. Our favorite? Multigenerational icon Paris Hilton, who not long ago entrusted Jean Dousset to bring to life her custom-crafted, one-of-a-kind engagement ring featuring not only an emerald cut center diamond, but 17 custom cut trapezoid, and baguette-cut diamonds.
