5.05ct Fancy Light Brown Green Yellow Emerald Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

Emerald Cut Fancy Yellow Diamond Rings

Emerald Cut Fancy Yellow Diamond Rings take the best characteristics of this vintage stone and contemporary color and combine it into a beautiful ring. Some of the facet lines are more pronounced and the reflection of light is different in a fancy yellow diamond. Standardized in the 1940s, this cut was originally created for use with emeralds to maximize the brilliance and sparkle of the stone and is evident when you see this cut paired with a fancy colored diamond.

The emerald cut requires a very high quality stone since imperfections in the stone will be very visible to the eye due to the large table (top area of diamond) and shallow depth. If a lower quality stone is selected, imperfections should be nearest the short ends or corners so that blemishes are hidden within the facet work.

The emerald cut has step-cuts that are long and narrow, creating rectilinear facets that run parallel to the girdle of the stone. Like the Asscher cut diamond ring, the facets create a maze-like world within the stone. In the three rings above, you can see how different the lines are reflected within fancy colored diamonds with different hues and saturation of yellow. The facet work in the three rings also show different patterns, since this shape will vary in numbers between 50 and 58 facets. The ideal length to width ratio of the emerald cut diamond is 1.4:1 or a range between 1.3 and 1.5:1. The first and third image display more of a square ratio while the center ring is more of the rectangular shape. Emerald cuts are popular among jewelers since approximately 80% of the rough diamond is retained and is also perfect for handling larger stones. The large facets of this stone are effective in reflecting the light back through the stone, thereby increasing its brightness. This cut maximizes a diamond's clarity, color and luster.
