Vintage Square Emerald Cut Diamond Rings

Made most popular during the Art Deco period of the 1920s and 1930s, the square emerald cut diamond rings in vintage styles are making a huge comeback in recent times. Highly preferred as precious gifts, engagement rings or part of the wedding jewelry trousseau, these antique styled rings bring with them a touch of romance and classic elegance. Unique and enticing, the emerald cut has a charm much different than that of the princess cut or the round brilliant cut. Due to its square shape and step cut design, the facets are square in shape and appear arranged in parallel lines on the stone, while the distinct clipped corners of the stone gives its top face an octagonal shape. Since most emerald cut diamonds are found in a rectangular ratio of length to width, it can be a bit tricky to find perfect square emerald cut diamonds at retail jewelry stores.

It may be wise to find a reputed diamond company online and schedule an appointment to find your ideal stone. Although, it might help to know that if you are keen on a square shape in emerald cut, you could consider widening your search to include the Asscher cut as well. In fact, the asscher cut is identical to the emerald cut, except that asscher cut diamonds are near square in shape and is sometimes even referred to as the square emerald cut. Hence, if you go in for an asscher cut diamond for your ring setting, you can rest assured that the ratio of the diamond’s width and length is close to 1:1, which on the other hand is something, you will have to ensure while procuring an emerald cut diamond from the market.

One of the most important factors in acquiring an emerald cut or asscher cut diamond ring is the clarity grade of the diamond. In view of the fact that both these cuts emphasize any flaws and inclusions the diamond may possess, selecting a diamond that is rated high on the clarity grade scale is advisable. Such cuts look beautiful in fancy colored diamonds as they are ideal to showcase the diamond’s color, as well as the model colorless wherein the cut accentuates the shine, brilliance and natural clarity of the stone.

If you are looking for square emerald cut diamond rings in vintage styles, be sure to choose diamonds that are of decent carat weight. Even though emerald cut and asscher cut diamonds appear bigger than their rounder counterparts, such diamonds look best when they are a carat or more. Especially, if you are buying the ring for a loved one or in order to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday, wedding or anniversary.
