The Art Deco Favorite - Carre Cut Diamond

The Carre Cut Diamond is a lesser-known member of the square-cut diamond family which like most of its family members is somewhat overshadowed by the ever-popular Princess Cut. However, with the continuous search for something distinctive and elegant, as well as the appreciation for art deco and antique style Jewelry, it has certainly found its own fan base.

Why The Carre Might be Your Square Diamond of Choice

The Carré Cut Shape resembles the classic 90-degree corners that square shapes like the princess cut are known for, but the seductive traditional step cut method that is often seen in Emeralds, Baguettes and other fancy cuts, gives the shape and those who observe it a remarkable display of symmetry. When compared with the princess shape that uses the brilliant cutting method, it delivers something entirely different in terms of its light dispersion. the Carre provides mesmerizing elegance and fire, that is often incorporated into fantastic art deco and art nouveau style Jewelry. Shapes like the Carre are most beautiful under natural sunlight or under romantic candlelights. After all, in the time in which they were developed, that was the norm.
The Carre, along with its angeled corners are the weak spot of the diamond, and as such, if you purchase them in three stone rings, or other popular vintage style choices, it is highly recommended to go with settings that protect each individual corner.

The Difference Between a Good Carre Cut and a Bad One

Due to the step cut method incorporated in the creation of the Carre Cut the type of beauty showcased is drastically different from the dazzling sparkle of brilliant cuts. Instead, the focus is on subtlety and elegance and a white spectrum of lights as opposed to colorful. A stunning choice in its own right, the step cut does have certain things that should be avoided. For example, the avoidance or minimizing inclusions due to its larger facets and larger table size is a must as they can be seen much clearer, and the same can be said for the Carre Cut. In addition, while well proportioned masterfully cut step cut diamonds provide a majestic return on investment, those that aren’t well-proportioned look “milky” and blurry. So who you choose to source your Carre Cuts from is a crucial decision.
