Princess cut engagement rings offer many unique style options and are a current favourite of many of our clients. The princess cut diamond is an excellent choice for those who favour a square shape over the traditional round diamond, and it can look spectacular in a vast array of different engagement ring styles including halo, vintage, three stone or solitaire.
A little background on princess cut diamonds…
Princess cut diamond are the second most popular choice for engagement rings next to the traditional round brilliant cut. This is due to the fact that the princess cut tends to show a lot of brightness and sparkle. It is also slightly more economical due to the fact that the princess cut involves a much lower loss of weight when the diamond is being cut. This means that from a given rough diamond, the cutter can usually cut a princess cut that will be larger and retain more of the original weight than they could if they were to cut out a different diamond shape.
For those of you who are fans of pop culture, the princess cut diamond is also a popular choice with regards to many celebrity engagement rings.
