Boasting a facet structure similar to the emerald cut, the hexagon cut looks exactly like you might expect with its perfectly even six sides. This cut of diamond is perfect for anyone who loves character of an emerald cut or Asscher cut, but wants something a little more out of the box and unique. Like the emerald cut, the hexagon cut came to prominence during the art deco period of the 1920s. Today, these unique styles of step cuts are becoming increasingly popular, and modern versions are significantly more common than antique hexagon cut diamonds.

Just like with other step cut diamonds, clarity is going to be one of the most important diamond value factors to keep in mind when looking at hexagon cuts because the inclusions will most likely be noticeable to the naked eye.
