Princess Cut Diamond Rings

The best way to feel like royalty? Choose a best-selling princess cut diamond for your engagement ring. When you slide it onto your finger you’ll understand why this celebrated cut is the second most popular diamond chosen for modern engagement rings. Hailing from “French” cut origins and enjoying increased popularity in recent decades, princess cut diamonds are square or rectangular in shape with four beveled sides. They shine spectacularly when worn and have become a sought-after choice for modern brides who prefer a ring with a bit of irresistible vintage charm. Square cut diamonds are generally less expensive and fit into a range of budgets, though they carry the same carat weight as their round counterparts.

Princess Cut Engagement Ring

Many people mistakenly believe that the princess shape traces back to 1971. At that time, Basil Watermeyer patented the barion cut, a premier diamond shape at the time. However, this was a difficult cut to craft due to all the symmetrical lines. A similar stone, the quadrillion, was patented in 1979. This diamond bore 49 facets, the barion had more than 80.

 

While it is important to recognize that these early designs introduced the princess cut, the popular shape stems back all the way to 1961. A London diamond cutter named Arpad Nagy created a new style referred to as the profile or princess cut. In the following years, the name “princess cut” stuck. Today, the diamond is referred to as a princess cut in the open market, and a square modified brilliant on most gem lab reports.

 

Princess cut engagement rings are a great fit for fun-loving and lively brides-to-be. The diamond shape attracts light and shines much like a circle cut for a lower price. Less stone weight is eliminated during the cutting process. While round diamonds are trimmed down around the edges, the princess cut maintains its angles and weight making it a favorite shape of diamond cutters.

 

When looking for the right princess cut engagement ring, look for hefty length and width measurements within your carat weight range. Your diamond will appear bigger. To obtain the perfect square, shop for a width ratio of 1:1. Ideally, the most sought-after princess cut rings have a 62-76 percent table, 10-15 percent crown height, with a 64-76 percent total depth. To ensure a complete eye clean stone, go higher than an H-I color and SI1 for clarity. For just the right bling, also inquire about symmetry and polish when shopping for a princess cut engagement ring.

 

The modern princess ring is revered as a timeless classic, yet the stylish four-corner cut is only a few years older than many young engaged couples today. Because the cut uses such a high percentage of the stone, especially compared to a round shaped diamond, it is a popular option for couples seeking high-quality, with a more affordable price tag.
