The emerald cut has been used a lot in ethical moissanite. In the past, it was used to make beautiful coloured gemstones and diamonds. Moissanite jewellery is very popular right now because of this. Emerald cut moissanite rings are becoming one of the most popular choices for engagement rings because they have a fancy, unique, vintage look and cost less than round brilliant cut rings. We will give you some tips on how to choose the right emerald-cut moissanite ring.
What is an Emerald Cut?
Emerlad cut moissanite ring has chiselled step cuts and straight, linear facets that are usually lined up along the length of the stone. Most of the time, the edges are rounded off to make the object more stable and less likely to break.
This ring is made to show off the Emerald Cut stone’s large surface table and deep clarity. The long steps used to cut the stone make a lot of white and coloured light. Emerald cutting is most often done on rectangles and squares.
How to Choose the Best Moissanite Ring with an Emerald Cut?
The emerald cut moissanite ring is becoming more popular in the market for engagement rings because it has a stylish and unique look. It’s a good choice for people who want a bigger stone but don’t want to spend too much money. But how do you find the right one? The rules are the following:
Get a Moissanite Gem with a Lot of Clarity
This makes me wonder why it’s so important to pay close attention to how clear an emerald moissanite is. The clarity of a gem is based on how perfect it is inside and outside. Moissanite gems can lose their shine because of flaws inside or outside the stone (blemishes). The emerald cut brings out clarity more than any other.
A moissanite ring with an emerald cut has a large table that lets you see deep into the stone and makes flaws more obvious. If you want to buy an emerald-cut diamond, don’t buy one with a low clarity grade. Most experts say that for this cut, you should buy a moissanite diamond with a clarity grade of VVS1 or higher. This means the diamond shouldn’t have any flaws that are easy to see.
Choose the Right Length, Width, and Depth Ratios
Before you buy an emerald-cut moissanite ring, you should know about the length-to-width ratio and the depth-to-width ratio. Both of these ratios affect how your gemstone looks as a whole.
The shape of an emerald-cut diamond is based on how long it is compared to how wide it is. The best ratio for you really depends on what you like. For example, a moissanite that is 6mm long and 4mm wide has a length-to-width ratio of 1.50, which means it is rectangular. On the other hand, a ratio close to 1 looks like a square because the length and width of the diamond are the same.
The most popular shape for an Emerald Cut moissanite is a rectangle, and the ratio should be between 1.30 and 1.60. Most people choose a ratio close to 1.5, but you may want a moissanite gem that is a little bit wider or longer.
How a moissanite ring with an emerald cut stone reflects light depends on how deep the stone is. So, the best length-to-width ratio for an emerald cut diamond is mostly a matter of taste, but there is a clear best length-to-depth ratio range. The depth percentage of your emerald-cut diamond should be between 60 and 70 percent of the stone’s width for it to reflect the most light and look the brightest.
Choose the Moissanite that is the whitest.
Another thing that stands out more in an emerald cut moissanite ring is the colour. Large table cuts and step cuts keep more of the stone’s original colour than other shapes, so the eye can see the stone’s true colour.
On the colour grades of moissanite. The least coloured is D-E-F. The best choices for you will be those two. In some lights, moissanite that is 2 carats or more will look yellow or grey. So we suggest that you choose a D-color stone. All of the emerald cut moissanite rings at Bestcarat Jewelry are a D colour grade.
Are moissanite rings with an emerald cut more expensive?
No, that’s the short answer. A moissanite ring with an emerald cut costs less than one with a round brilliant cut. Even better, it costs less than most other shapes. Compared to other cuts, emerald cuts aren’t as popular, but they have a higher yield on cutting (less weight is lost when a rough diamond is cut into a polished emerald cut).
But things aren’t quite that simple. Emerald cuts do cost less. But if you want an emerald cut moissanite ring, you need to be a lot more careful. Because emerald cuts are so glassy, they don’t hide flaws as well as other cuts. When we talk about emerald cuts, the clarity grade is often VS2 or even VS1.
Advice on How to Set Up an Emerald Cut Moissanite Ring
To make the perfect emerald-cut moissanite ring, you need to choose the best setting for your ring. Here are some suggestions. Let’s look at them in the next section.
Pick the best setting for your Emerald Cut Moissanite Ring.
A solitaire setting lets a lot of light shine through the diamond, which makes the “hall of mirrors” effect of a well-cut Emerald Cut even more noticeable. It shows the unique elegance of an Emerald moissanite perfectly. A simple solitaire setting can never go wrong. You can add a pavé setting, which makes it look like the centre stone is bigger, to make it stand out more. Also, you should try the three-stone emerald moissanite ring.

Think about the metal you want your emerald cut moissanite ring to be made of.
The metal that holds your emerald-cut moissanite stone matters a lot if you want it to look perfect. Metals like platinum and white gold can make the centre stone look more brilliant by reflecting light back through it.
