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.
