For more about princess cut rings, see frequently asked questions below.
What is a princess cut diamond?
Created in 1961, princess cut diamonds are a contemporary shape designed to maximise the natural brilliance of each diamond. The princess cut is one of the most popular shapes, featuring a square or rectangular diamond shape and up to 76 small facets — making this one of the most sparkling cuts to choose from.
Are princess cut diamond engagement rings expensive?
Being one of the closest cuts to the natural formation of the shape of a diamond, princess cut shape engagement rings are not as expensive as round cut diamond rings. If you’re looking for a more affordable but equally as beautiful engagement ring, the princess cut is a perfect option.
What should I look out for when choosing a princess cut diamond?
When choosing the perfect princess cut diamond, there are three main factors to consider: shape, symmetry and sparkle. Looking at the shape of a well-cut princess-shaped diamond, you will notice that the length to width ratio does not exceed 1:05:1 and that the opposite edges of the diamond are the same length.
The second factor to consider is symmetry. In short, the more symmetrical the facets in the diamond, the more desirable. You can compare the symmetry of the facets by drawing a metaphorical horizontal line across the diamond and comparing the top and bottom halves.
Lastly, you need to consider the sparkle of the diamond, also known as scintillation. Featuring a balanced contrast of light and dark patterns in the facets, a beautiful princess cut diamond ring will not be too light nor too dark.
