Loribeth:  I love the contour. The design of it even looks like it is opening up, like a blossom. Looks like it would comfortably hug the finger too 🙂 Nice choice, as I am sure it keeps it from spinning. I dislike when rings “spin”. I ended up getting a “Euro shank” to prevent that and it works like a dream! No more spinning!

I have an emerald cut Ering (not diamond though) but I will tell you no matter what the stone I am LOVING emerald cuts now! I never really thought about an emerald cut ring until my Fiance gave me my Ering, and I love it – and have even looked at others if ever need a stand in or travel or w.e and cannot wear my Ering – but still want the emerald look 🙂 Enjoy! Also – there are some sites that you can use to create your own – with any stone, Gemvara is one just fyi – diamonds and gemstones, also blue nile is great

I have an emerald cut. When we started looking, I wasn’t sure what cut to get, but Fiance was drawn to emerald cuts and I soon joined the bandwagon.  I love my ring!  It’s a GIA 1.32 carats (I think), G color, VVS1 (just one tiny speck in corner that I cannot see).  I looked at others with lower clarity, and you can see flaws much more with these cuts than others, especially in bigger diamonds. I look at a few 2+ carats in which I wouldn’t go much lower than VVS2 or maybe VS1 at that size. 

Here’s my ring. I never seem to get a good picture with my phone camera. I need to get a better one with FI’s real camera.

mzwiggy:  Thank you! The center stone is .47 carats. The ring is sized at 4.75, but it’s pretty loose.

I tried on a .75 carat EC solitaire when we were shopping and thought it looked like more than a full carat on me, so finger/carat size is all really relative!

Before I got engaged I was set on emerald cut too, but I had to have sparkle as well. I ended up with a rectangular radiant cut in a halo. The pics don’t do the sparkle justice. People are always telling me to “turn off my ring.” I don’t know all the specs, but my center stone is 1.2 and the tcw is 3. I wear a size 6. The pics aren’t the greatest.

mzwiggy:  

Center stone:  .50 Carats

Side stones: .20 Carats approximately 

Color: H

Clarity:  VVS1

Cut: Good (We compromised on the cut a bit to keep the center stone in our price range. The other Cs were more important to us.)

I have looked at my EC under the microscope, and I could not find any flaws at all. Neither could the jeweler when he looked.  Of course, it also took us forever to find the engraved GIA cert number on it too, because the girdle is so thin, but it is there.

MrsEmeraldLover:  When I was quickly scrolling thru, I had to quickly back-scroll to check out your ring!  Gorgeous!  I love ECs with baguettes!!

mzwiggy:  I really think it is a matter of preference. J is going to be warmer looking.  The thing you need to consider is if you are going to have other diamonds in your setting, it’s important to get all the stones in your setting the same color or very close. I wouldn’t put a J colored center stone in a ring like mine that has all H colored stones, because it would look yellow in comparison. But if you were getting a solitaire and like the warmer look of a J, then there would be no problem at all.
