I love that emerald cuts are so vintage and would love to get one in my ering…my concern is that it won’t sparkle …do others feel that way? i understand it won’t sparkle as much as the brilliant cuts but does it have a decent sparkle?
please show off your emerald cut rings with ring and carat size :))

I LOVE my emerald e ring. Its my dream ring 🙂 It won’t sparkle as much as a round or any cut thats faceted, but I love the way mine sparkles. Its absolutely perfect (and perfect for me). Its around 2.8-2.85ish ctw. My ring size in 6.75.
If you want a little more sparkle but still vintagey, you might consider an oval diamond. Oval was my second choice and realy the only other shape besides emerald that I considered. Its a gorgeous shape! Good luck on your search!

I don’t have an emerald cut but I once had an asscher. It’s very gorgeous and has more “flashes” of light. It sparkles differently than a round so it’s difficult to compare. Check this video out.
I persoanlly can’t commit to one because they are hard to keep clean and don’t really like square stones.

@RhubarbPie: Holy cow! That ring is gorgeous!
Mine is posted below. I am a size 7, and it is a 1.5 total carat. It isn’t large, but I have short hands. I receive compliments ALL the time. It is pretty sparkly (as long as I keep it clean) and unique looking. I don’t know many people who have emerald cuts. Most of my friends have princess cut, which is lovely but looks terrible on my hand. There is something so elegant about the emerald cut.

@minkkii: I have an asscher and I think it sparkles a lot, but its very different from the way other cuts sparkle. I am most distracted by it when I’m driving lol.

I wouldn’t say that emeralds sparkle less, they have a different type of sparkle ;). I am partial to step cut diamonds. I have an asscher and I absolutely love it. The key to keeping them sparkly is to keep them clean. The jeweler told me that asschers, emeralds, and princess cuts show dirt easier than other cuts. You just need to scrub them with dish liquid and a baby toothbrush now and then. If you want more sparkle, you could always add a halo or sidestones. If you really love emeralds, I would say to go with what you love… You can always go to a jeweler and try on different cuts.

I agree – not many people have emerald cut diamonds these days but they’re so classy and timeless.
