An Emerald cut is in the shape of a rectangle that has trimmed corners and contains mostly 50 facets, fewer facets than round and square cuts. The purpose of this cut is to emphasize on the colour of the gem and offers a better balance of it.
The emerald cut was first created for emeralds but it now became a shape for either diamonds or other gemstones. An interesting fact is that only 3 percent of the world’s diamonds are emerald cut but yet, they are so popular. This cut was designed to expose a gem’s brilliance and it can make a diamond more shinny and elegant.
