Princess cuts are one of the most popular contemporary cuts, giving the design incredible brilliance and captivating geometry. Princess cut diamonds take centre stage on rings, pendants, bracelets, and more. Princess cut diamonds can be placed in three-stone diamond rings, or channel set on the bands in an invisible setting, giving the illusion of a never-ending row of glitz and fire.
About Princess Cut Diamonds
In 1979, diamond cutter Israel “Izzy” Itzkowitz invented the princess cut using the brilliant faceting arrangement of round brilliant cuts on a square shaped diamond.
Princess cuts are considered brilliant cuts, similar to their counterpart, round brilliant, perfect for those who love a lot of facets and incredible fire dispersed from all angles as the stone reflects the light when it is moving. Princess cut is currently the second most popular stone type after round brilliant.
Princess cut diamonds are modified square cuts and feature 50-58 facets, commonly 57 facets. They have flat square tables with uncut corners (unlike emerald cuts that have recessed or cropped shoulders).
Timeless Elegance, Sparkling Brilliance
Princess cut diamond engagement rings exude timeless elegance and glamorous confidence with their stately square shape, often placed in a secure prong setting. Princess cut diamonds may be complemented by round brilliant cut side stones, princess side stones, or worn as a solitaire for a stunning display of symmetry.
The princess and radiant cuts come the closest to emulating the brilliance of a round cut. As a result the princess cut is ideal for someone who wants a more unusual cut of diamond with the sparkle of the round brilliant cut diamond.
