The Emerald Cut Diamond

The Emerald Cut Diamond


The emerald cut was originally developed by stone cutters for emeralds as their fragility required particular techniques to prevent breakage and improve stability. The origins of this style date back to the 1500s but it wasn’t until the 1920s that the term ‘emerald cut’ was used. Its striking appearance was the perfect match for the sharp lines and satisfying symmetry of art deco designs.
