In recent months, step cut diamond engagement rings have come up as the reigning style to look out for in 2019. The angular cuts of this style evoke a modern look, while the many ways to design these rings allow for variations to suit any fashion preference.
But first, what exactly is a step cut ring?
Step cuts refer to the stair-step looking facets in diamond shapes like emeralds, asschers, and baguettes. While brilliant cuts create a scintillating array of tiny lights, step cut diamonds give off distinctive flashes instead. In engagement ring design, emeralds and asschers are the typically choices for center stones; baguettes are usually reserved for side stones.
Mix and match these cuts for a decidedly Art Deco-esque look that shines effortlessly.

This beauty from Tacori’s Simply Tacori line shines in its distinctiveness. Combining multiple bridal trends at once, the emerald cut of the center stone provides a unique focal point while the east-west orientation adds a modern touch.
Another winner from Tacori, this style from the RoyalT collection is a step cut engagement ring dream. This three-stone ring features an emerald center stone flanked by two baguettes. The result is a regal-looking style with dreamy side details any woman would fall in love with -- perfect for the queen of your life!
From Simon G’s inventory comes an engagement ring that heavily features step cut stones. In addition to the prominent emerald cut stone in the center, rows of baguette beauties trail the length of the ring band, promising hall-of-mirror flashes of light anytime you move your hand. This is truly a stunner that needs to be shared with the world -- and your partner.
For the simple bride-to-be, Noam Carver’s bezel-set step cut engagement ring is a treasure in and of itself. With no additional diamonds to take away from the center stone, the diamond’s quality will be front and center for all of your friends to admire and envy. Rose gold adds a touch of feminine flair to offset the sharp angles of the emerald cut diamond.
This three-stone stunner, this time from Michael M, offers a more traditional interpretation of the engagement ring style. All three center stones are comprised of emerald cuts, while the side diamonds running down the ring band are circular in shape. The contrast between the two adds additional interest while still allowing the emeralds to shine the way they are meant to.
Finally, this second pick from Noam Carver features an asscher cut diamond with princess cut stones channel-set into the ring band. The continuity of the shapes brings the look together for a modern-looking ring with classic appeal. For the brides-to-be who want an up-to-date piece without going overboard on the trends, this ring may be the one.
