There are many different types of cuts for engagement rings. Princess, Round, and Cushion are a few examples of cuts that are popular with brides today. At Trumpet & Horn, we love all types of cuts and styles, but we think it’s time for Emerald Cut vintage engagement rings to enjoy some time in the spotlight, and we have four fabulous rings that are ready to shine.
Stones that have an Emerald Cut are rectangular in shape and feature cropped corners and facets that resemble steps or stairs. The Emerald Cut was named after the traditional emerald stone, which is primarily featured in jewelry with a rectangular cut. This type of cut focuses on the clarity and luster of the stone.
The Art Deco period was all about geographic shapes and lines, and the emerald cut skillfully shows off both of these elements, as is evident in Silverlake. Just like all Emerald Cut vintage engagement rings, this ring from the 1930s features a rectangular stone that comes in at 1.35 carats.
While the diamond is enough on its own to make Silverlake stand out, it also has six baguette cut diamonds and a pair of single cut diamonds. The shank and band of Silverlake are both comprised of platinum. You could easily get lost staring into the diamonds on this incredible ring.
Another ring from the Art Deco era is the beautiful Edendale. The incredible center stone is just over a carat and the clarity of the diamond is impeccable. Why stop at one diamond though, when you could have six more? Emerald Cut vintage engagement rings feature large, beautiful stones but Edendale takes it to another level with its surrounding baguette cut diamonds. These shoulder stones stand out even more thanks to the milgrain edges.
Just when you thought you had the Emerald Cut style down, Maple Hill comes in and throws you through a loop! This is another ring from the Art Deco era, and it really packs in those traditional era characteristics like symmetry, shapes, and line work. Unlike Edendale and Silverlake, Maple Hill feature two large emerald cut diamonds for a combined total of over 1.6 carats. One rectangular diamond is expected in Emerald Cut vintage engagement rings, but two is even better.
Maple Hill is a bypass style ring, and following the top diamond is a curve of five straight baguette diamonds, decreasing in size on their way around the finger. The bottom row creates the opposite effect, whereas the baguette diamonds increase in size until they meet the emerald shaped stone. One ring, 11 diamonds: that’s Maple Hill.
We love the Emerald Cut at Trumpet & Horn, and it is easy to see why. Rings with this type of cut are timeless and elegant, so it made sense to us to create our own ring: enter Hampstead Heath.
This original Trumpet & Horn design is similar to the other Emerald Cut vintage engagement rings in this list, in that is features an emerald cut diamond. This ring also has six square diamonds around the main stone and a halo of surrounding diamonds.
