Emerald’s shapes and colors

The shape of an emerald is quite significant as well as its final ‘cut’ which will determine its brilliance.

For the most part an emerald cut (the step cut) is very desired but this varies according to the current fashion trends.

Also a round gemstone with a complex faceting will bring brilliance and life. The stone’s color remains most popular in its pure green hue which means that green emeralds still hold supremacy in this regard.

Lesser quality stones have a blue or yellow hue. Yet the ways for emerald’s coloring are changing, as are the methods of disguising faults. So be wary of those factors.
