I’m pretty sure step cut stones sparkle the least. That being said, they are my favorite stones.

I think it’s step cuts but they are still beautiful.  Howevere you’d need to get a pretty great one (high color and clarity) otherwise it will show.

Emerald and asscher–They don’t sparkle, they blind u with big bright flashes of awesomeness.

I’ll agree with the PP’s… However. I have an emerald cut promise ring and I’m obsessed with it. step cuts have that something extra that other cuts don’t. I was really worried that I would be disappointed with the “lack of sparkle,” but alas, I AM NOT!

Agree w. PPs – the step cuts (like emerald and asscher) don’t sparkle as much, but they’re definitely gorgeous in their own way. I’d love to own an emerald or asscher diamond one day. For my engagement ring we picked a cushion (very sparkly) but I wouldn’t mind having a step cut in a different piece of jewelry one day! I think all diamonds sparkle slightly differently.. that’s the beauty of them. My cushion sparkles differently than a round, for example.
