Beautiful shape, lovely brilliance, they could only be Princess cut diamond engagement rings
Princess cut diamond engagement rings are the second most popular diamond shape after the round diamond.
It is a relatively new cut having been created in the 1960’s and has since gained popularity as an alternative to the “classic” brilliant cut diamond.
It has its origins in the early French cut and is sometimes called a “square modified brilliant.
A rough diamond which is square looking would be best shaped into a princess cut as opposed to any other cut.
This is particularly so if the rough stone is quite deep, because the princess cut works best with deep stones…..allowing for maximum weight retention & makes the final cost of the stone cheaper.
