Unique Emerald-cut Gemstone Rings: Timeless Shapes Meet Surprising Color
Unique gemstone rings that feature emerald-cut stones combine surprising color with a timeless shape. As the name suggests, the emerald cut was originally designed for the emerald. Its rectangular shape with cropped corners is a wonderful cut for this green gem, a stone that’s notoriously difficult to cut; however, the emerald cut isn’t just for the emerald! This shape also brings out the beauty of a number of other gemstones, including several stones you don’t see every day.
Emerald-cut gemstones have “stepped” facets, which means that they resemble steps on a staircase. For this reason, this cut is sometimes known as a step cut. While it has fewer facets than some other popular cuts, its facets are larger, allowing it to give off large flashes of light as opposed to a more subtle sparkle. The long lines and geometric look of the emerald cut create a look that’s elegant and full of class, and gives many gemstones the ability to give off dramatic sparkle.
The 5.00 Carat Emerald-Cut London Blue Topaz and Diamond Ring showcases the emerald cut in simple yet sophisticated fashion. This ring’s starring player is a sizeable London blue topaz, the deepest, richest variety of blue topaz. This stone is over a centimeter high, giving the ring that holds it sense of richness and elegance. Two baguette-cut diamonds hug this striking stone, adding 0.15 carats of colorless sparkle on each side. If you’d like to extend this classy look to your ears, consider purchasing this ring as part of the Emerald-Cut London Blue Topaz Ring and Earring Set, which pairs it with coordinating earrings, each adorned with a single 8mm-high stone.
The color of the stone that takes the spotlight in the 7 Carat Emerald Cut Smoky Quartz Ring might be understated, but its cut is anything but shy. This striking piece features a chic emerald-cut smoky quartz, a full 12mm high, showcasing the long facets of the emerald cut and demonstrating the sophisticated appeal of this unusual gemstone. This name of this subtly-hued stone provides an apt description of its appearance—its sparkles with a tone that falls somewhere between brown and gray and that calls to mind the curls of smoke rising from a fall bonfire. This gem is accented with 0.12 carats of round diamonds that adorn the band as it splits to cradle this ring’s main attraction.
The Pink Sapphire Emerald-Cut 1/2 Carat Diamond Ring in 14K White Gold showcases the beauty of the emerald cut through both the bright dazzle of a unique gemstone and the colorless sparkle of diamonds. A 6mm-high emerald-cut pink sapphire is the centerpiece of this eye-catching piece, while two similarly-shaped, smaller diamonds—a quarter carat each—sparkle from each side. The simple shapes and stunning stones of this style give it a sense of timeless class and confident beauty.
Gemstone rings that feature emerald-cut gems display timeless design and dramatic dazzle. Whether you chose a piece that features an emerald-cut stone on its own or accented by diamonds, you’re sure to select a style that’s timelessly beautiful.
