Kim Kardashian shows off her emerald cut engagement ring from Kayne West

Kanye West chooses an emerald cut engagement ring to propose to Kim Kardashian

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are the latest celebrity couple to get engaged. To mark the occasion, Kanye chose a stunning emerald cut engagement ring.

Kanye timed his surprise proposal to coincide with Kim’s 33rd birthday. There’s nothing like a diamond ring to say “Happy Birthday” to your loved one.

According to the media sources, Kanye popped the question in the presence of close family and friends at the AT&T Park in San Francisco. He knelt down on one knee and presented Kim with a whopper diamond engagement ring.

Kim’s new sparkler boasts a gigantic 15 carat emerald cut diamond. Kim joins fellow celebrities Beyoncé Knowles and Angelina Jolie. Their engagement ring also features the emerald cut diamond.

Due to its shape, the emerald cut diamond falls under the category of fancy shape diamonds. Basically, it has a rectangular shape with its corners cut off.

The emerald cut diamond does not share the same fire and brilliance as the round and princess cut diamonds. In contrast, it is easily recognisable by its step cut facets. It is these broad facets that give this diamond shape its remarkable elegance and sophisticated look.

Diamonds featuring this particular cut are typically shallow. Hence, emerald cut diamonds have a larger top surface area for a given diamond carat. The clarity of this fancy shape diamond is very important to its quality and value. The large facets are unforgiving of flaws and imperfections that naturally occur in diamonds.
