Fashion website WhoWhatWear recently came out with an article detailing the most popular cut for celebrities’ engagement rings – Emerald.
Emerald-cut diamonds are versatile and timeless. Their shape is perfect for slender hands and makes any gemstone look beautiful. You can let it dazzle by itself on a thin band or pair it with other gemstones, for an Art Deco look. Another benefit of an emerald cut is that it is generally less expensive than other cuts, like a traditional round cut.
Some things to consider with an emerald-cut stone is the clarity; since there aren’t as many facets like other cuts, there’s less room for imperfections within the stone. (The money you save buying this cut can be put towards a stone with better clarity!) Brides who rock emerald cut are confident and unafraid to take risks, while still keeping a sense of poise.
The simple and elegant cut can be found on rings belonging to Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie, Victoria Beckham and more. Scroll down to view our favorite pieces featuring emerald cut stones.
