The Characteristics of a Carre Cut stone
The carre cut diamond is the least common type of step cut. It has square faces and gives off an appearance similar to that of a pyramid when viewed from above, as it comes in longer sides running through its length.
The most distinct characteristic of a Carre cut stone is its square face and parallel side edges that run throughout the length of the stone.
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.
