Frequently asked questions about Emerald Diamonds

Like Oval, Pear, Marquise, and other elongated shapes, the Emerald shaped diamond can often look larger than other diamond shapes of the same carat weight. But there are tips for making it look even larger when it's time to buy an engagement ring. Settings such as Halo or Signature Bezel outline the diamond’s shape, making it appear larger. A Cathedral setting lifts the diamond up and away from the finger, creating the optical illusion of a larger center stone. Three Stone and Toi et Moi settings will make diamonds look bigger because of the addition of other diamonds.

The main difference between the two is that a Baguette shaped diamond is longer and narrower. From the French word for “stick” or “wand,” a Baguette shaped diamond is more suitable in fine jewelry designs or as a sidestone in an engagement ring. Its thin shape doesn’t work as well as the more substantial Emerald shaped diamond does when featured as a center stone.

A VRAI created Emerald cut diamond features 49 rectangular facets.

The cost of an Emerald cut diamond is determined by the 4Cs, not its shape. This means it is not more expensive than other diamond shapes of the same quality. The only exception to the rule is with Round Brilliant diamonds, which can be more expensive due to high demand.
