By Amanda Evans 3 Minute Read

There’s no doubt that the vivid green colour associated with the emerald is mesmerising, but the emerald cut is just as captivating for both diamonds and coloured gemstones.

Recognised as the birthstone for May, the emerald’s vivid green colour reflects Springtime and is a symbol of love and rebirth. It has long been favoured by royalty, from Cleopatra and red-carpet Royalty Elizabeth Taylor to Her Majesty The Queen, and its rarity and intense colour make it a remarkable sight.

The emerald cut, named after the emerald gemstone, is also sometimes referred to as a step cut due to its parallel facets, and comes under the umbrella of 'fancy.’ Often, emeralds cut to emerald or oval shapes present a deeper colour so are perhaps the most frequently seen cuts, however, this stunning gemstone comes in many shapes that showcase the size, sparkle, and colour of this beautiful gemstone in differing ways.

A Sea of Green

Paired with diamonds, the emerald gemstone looks simply striking in this three stone ring. With a stunning hue and three step cut emeralds with a halo of diamonds, this ring has an art deco appearance with its angular cuts and sophisticated design. Create the look with this stunning emerald cut halo pendant, or for a more streamlined appearance, this baguette cut emerald and diamond eternity ring adds a stunning pop of colour to any bridal jewellery.

A Sophisticated Cut

This diamond emerald cut halo ring is a perfect illustration of elegance, and paired with 18ct yellow gold, has a wonderful vintage feel.
