The Princess Cut Diamond Engagement Ring
In the Diamond Business a “Princess Cut” is the second most popular cut. A princess cut is a modified brilliant cut stone in the shape of a square or a rectangle. Brilliant cuts are scientifically proven to reflect eh most light from inside the stone. A round brilliant cut diamond has 58 facets and can be made in many other shapes like ovals, marquise, and hearts.
The cut is not a measure of quality it’s just the shape. The reason why princess cuts are so popular as diamond engagement rings is industry marketing; to put it simply brides love the name! Princess cuts are actually a bit cheaper to buy then brilliant cuts because a larger portion (about 80%) of the rough diamond is retained.
