Emerald Cut

The Emerald Cut is rectangular with cut corners. It is a step cut as opposed to a brilliant cut. The facets are broad with flat planes resembling the steps of a stair. That's why it is refered to as a "step" cut. Unlike the Marquise brilliant, there is no bow-tie effect on an Emerald cut.

What to watch out for:
It is better to go for higher quality Emeralds, because both inclusions and lower color are more noticeable in Emeralds than in other cuts.
