The Princess cut is the second most popular cut shape for diamonds and accentuates a diamond's fire rather than its luster.
The top of the diamond is cut in a square shape and the overall shape is similar to that of a pyramid.
The princess cut is a relatively new diamond cut, having been created in the 1970s.
It has gained in popularity in recent years as a more unique alternative to the more popular round brilliant cut, in which the top of diamond is cut in a round circle and bottom forms a point like a cone.
The diameter of the princess cut is usually smaller than that of a round cut with the same carat weight, and the length is usually longer than that of a round brilliant cut.
The princess cut diamond is sometimes referred to as a "square modified brilliant," as it combines the brilliance of a round cut with an overall square or rectangular appearance. A princess cut diamond does sacrifice some brilliance in order to have its unique square shape however..
So If you love the fire of the traditional Round Brilliant Cut (the standard diamond engagement ring cut), but want to buy something a little different, you might just fall in love with the icy fire of the square Princess Cut Diamond.
Most square or rectangular cuts just don't live up to the round brilliant for sparkle, but the Princess Cut was designed for getting maximum brilliance from a square cut.
Always ensure that the setting for your princess cut diamond protects the four pointed corners -- these are the points most likely to chip (and why most rectangular or square diamond cuts have cropped corners).
