Exploring the Elegance of Carré Cut Diamonds

The Unique 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. 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.

Carre, The Square Diamond of Choice?

Incorporating the classic 90-degree corners that square shapes like the princess are known for, but the seductive traditional step cutting method that is often seen in Emeralds, Baguettes and other fancy cuts, gives the carre 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. It provides mesmerizing elegance and fire, that is often incorporated into fantastic art deco and art nouveau style Jewelry. Is is most beautiful under natural sunlight or under romantic candlelight. After all, in the time in which they were developed, that was the norm.

The Difference Between a Good Carre Cut and a Bad One

Due to the step cut method incorporated in the creation of the Carre 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. 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 stone from is a crucial decision.
