When looking for an emerald cut engagement ring it's important to consider the ratio of the diamond itself. As a rectangular shape you want to ensure the stone is not too long, as this will affect the light reflection through the diamond because of the facet structure.

The ideal ratio for emerald cut engagement rings would be between 1.35 and 1.50 - depending on personal preference. This will ensure the stone's structure is optimum for light refraction, but also a beautiful shape when set into a ring.

Emerald cut diamonds soared to popularity in the raging 20s during the Art Deco design era. A time where fashion, architecture and even furniture were influenced by geometric designs, it was only a matter of time before diamonds and jewellery caught up.

The cutting style was originally used to cut emerald gemstones – hence the name, but as cutters perfected the style, they understood that the beauty of their work would be ideal for diamonds too – and the emerald cut was born.
