    The dimensions of the actual stones are more important than the carat weight. should help in comparing stones once you have the actual dimensions…

    There are so many different factors here… 

    each of those cuts you mentioned face up very different in the same carat weights. Each stone will also vary depending on how deep or shallow the cut is or even how it’s cut (for example, true cushion brilliants are cut similarly to round brilliants and most of its weight can be viewed from above, whereas most modified cushions hold their weight on the bottom half of the stone where you can’t see it, Asscher and cushions also often come in elongated cuts which will provide a look somewhere in between your emerald cut and a princess cut). 

    Try using to compare your current emerald cut (you can plug in exactly dimensions, finger size, band width etc) and “standard” weights for different shaped diamonds of different carat weights.

    Yes probably but it truly depends on the stone.

    diamondbuzzybee :  be advised that all the cuts you named face down smaller than an emerald cut. So if you are getting a 2 CT it will face up like a 1.5 unless you get a round stone or a pear shape you will not see a big difference in the carat weight. Hope this helps

    vestedbee :  I agree with you! The dimensions of the stone is the only way to tell if it will be bigger or not. I used that diamond calculator a million times before I found the stone I wanted! Lol
