We're proud to sell moissanite because it's a gorgeous man-made stone that is environmentally friendly and 100% conflict-free - unlike diamonds. We feel good about the jewelry we sell, and you can feel just as good about wearing it!
When you buy moissanite rings, you've got all the choices in cuts that you would with any other gemstone, so might we suggest the venerable emerald cut? While it fell out of style for a while, emerald cuts are coming back in a big way because of their timeless look and subtle showiness.
Why People Love Emerald-Cut Moissanite Rings
An emerald cut (occasionally also called a 'table cut') is an older design, first invented in the 1400s. It's almost deceptively simple, presenting a large flat rectangular surface on top, with rounded edges. Clean lines and facets are the emphases here! Rather than overwhelming the eye with sparkles, it draws eye inwards towards the heart of the gem.
Why are people embracing this look again? We've heard a few reasons from our customers.
1 - The stone looks bigger
Maybe the biggest reason to choose an emerald cut is that it can make a small gem look big, and a big gem look huge. And when you're buying moissanite, you can afford a big gem! The long flat design emphasizes the size of the stone, while the recessed setting maximizes how much can be seen.
2 - Clarity becomes clear
Emerald cuts are risky for low-grade gems because the design makes it easier to spot flaws, and color imperfections within the stone are more visible. However, that's not a problem with moissanite. It's exceptionally clear and free of color, so it works beautifully as an emerald cut.
3 - An elegant engagement ring
Many of our customers are choosing emerald cut moissanite engagement rings, because of their understated elegance. It's a large stone that draws attention to itself, but without seeming too flashy or pretentious. It's a best-of-both-worlds combination of beauty and dignity.
4 - Emerald cuts are affordable
Finally, it's worth mentioning that emerald cuts are among the most affordable cuts, especially compared to a flashier round or brilliant cuts. Since moissanite is already more affordable than other clear gems, this makes emerald-cut moissanite rings a genuinely excellent value.
