I am not sure what a step cut, but maybe these side stones illustrate?

The step cut can be used to achieve emerald and Asscher shaped diamonds. Step cut diamonds are either square or rectangular in shape; they have facets which are arranged parallel to the girdle.

 I love step cuts. I don’t own any but I love the idea of a baguette center stone.

This one is 7.75 ct !!!

I love a step cut, but while we were researching engagement rings we discovered that too thin & long can be a spread cut which is not good (something about the light going out the bottom of the diamond and looking dull). I used Diamond Database (DiamDB.com) which was tremendously helpful with regard to specs, measurements, and gauging how it would look on my finger  + it also notes if the measurements/depth/etc. are adequate or not. Good luck!
