A little lesson on emerald cuts. They are stones whose outlines are rectangular and whose facets are arranged in a parallel girdle known also known as a step cut. These stones often have their corners truncated because sharp corners on a diamond are points of weakness. Emerald cuts can come in a variety of length to width ratios - long and skinny or almost square like and asscher cut. An emerald cut has 58 facets and will carry less flash than a round cut but it known for its more subtle and understand look and feel.
