Arlington & Co. Hatton Garden – Latest Commission
Emerald cut diamonds are gorgeous clear stones, rectangular shaped with long facets extending down the sides.
This shape’s large table (the flat part on top) shows off the clarity better than any other shape.
What it lacks in brilliance, it more than makes up for in undeniable elegance.
Created in the Art Deco period, the emerald cut boasts long glamorous lines, a rectangular shape with cut corners that resemble steps and it’s name was taken from the most popular shape for emeralds in the 1920s.
Our Client had a ring commissioned using her existing 8ct emerald cut diamond. Taking 40 hours we hand made the ring in our onsite workshop, here are a few photographs of some of the processes involved.
