Loans on emerald cut diamonds from Pawnbrokers of Rodeo Drive
Emerald cut diamonds are also known as square emerald cut, step- or trap-cut stones and have an octagonal shape, with truncated corners. From a historical perspective, these were the first jewelry cuts to have been made, so can be an indication of older stones. Although emerald cut diamonds don’t usually have the same brilliance as some of the other popular cuts, they do offer far greater insight into the clarity of the diamond. When mounted, emerald cut diamonds are easily surrounded by additional gems, due to the flat planes of their design.
You may be wondering whether it would be a better idea to sell your emerald cut diamond, however, we would offer a few words of caution. A square cut emerald cut diamond sold at auction in 2017 achieved a price of just $45,000, although its appraised value was between $181,200 and $241,500. This just goes to show that taking loans on emerald cut diamonds can be the best solution in some cases.
That said, a 2017 Swiss auction of what was described as “the most beautiful diamond in the world” achieved a price of nearly $33mn (£25.5m). The emerald cut diamond was described as a 163.41 carat flawless D-color emerald cut diamond and sold well above its reserve price. This diamond originally formed the central piece of an emerald and diamond necklace and was 404.20 carats before being cut. The diamond was the largest ever found in Angola and the 27th largest white diamond stone that’s ever been discovered. It took six months for a team of cutters and polishers from the Julius Klein Group of New York to create this stunning example of an emerald cut diamond.
