I have been looking at emerald cuts, recently, and have run into the same thing.  I have also seen asscher cut stones being called emerald cuts.  It gets frustrating sometimes.

I totally agree with you! It does not make me trust the seller at all. I don’t mind when it’s a relatively obscure cut like a french cut or carre cut (although a quick google search could tell you whether or not you’re right in your supposition), but if it’s a fairly popular one, I don’t know how you can get it wrong.

Ugh, that does sound frustrating.  I have an emerald cut stone also and kept finding rings that were made with an emerald.  I do not miss those days or seaching on the Internet.  I hope you find something soon!

I’m also shocked by the lack of knowledge  online and at brick and mortar stores. I once told someone I only wanted to see step cuts and he thought I was referring to an upgrade. ‘Like a step up?’ we laughed so hard as we walked out.
