Discover Our Collection of Vintage Emerald Cut Jewellery

Emerald cut diamonds are one of the oldest types of stone cut. Its stylistic origins can be traced back to the table cut of the 16th Century. The emerald cut was initially invented for emeralds, as the name suggests. It became very popular as it reduced pressure in the cutting process, which prevented imperfections from forming in the gems. Diamond cutters were impressed by this new technique and began to use it for diamonds as well. Antique emerald cut diamond rings are sought after by many women today as they make beautiful wedding bands. 

The emerald cut diamond is recognisable by its rectangular appearance and clean lines. Usually, it is made up of between 57-58 facets. It is a unique diamond shape, and it is easily distinguishable from other stone cuts. It is a beautiful way of cutting diamonds, and the sparkle and elegance vintage emerald cut rings emanate are stunning.

Vintage emerald cut rings are very popular in our Art Deco rings collection. These stones only became known as 'emerald cut' in the 1920s, when the style became popular again. Although emerald cut rings have always been desirable, they shot into popularity during the Art Deco period of the 1920s and 30s. The rectangular shape fits in perfectly with the artistic ideals of the time. Geometric, clean line design defined the period, reflecting its perceived modernity and innovation. After the First World War, society underwent a massive upheaval, and many traditional values became obscure. The antique emerald cut diamond rings in our Art Deco engagement rings collection were a reflection of the change throughout the period. 

Vintage emerald cut rings are highly popular amongst brides today due to their classic charm and timeless luxury. However, the desire for vintage emerald cut rings would not disappear after the Great Depression. After Elizabeth Taylor's third husband, Mike Taylor, proposed with a Cartier emerald cut ring, the trend would continue from the 1950s well into the 1980s. Our selection of antique emerald cut diamond rings is truly a walk through history, displaying handmade pieces expertly crafted from a time before mass production.
