Princess Cut Diamonds
The princess cut is a square brilliant cut with sharp (un-cropped) corners. It is one of the most popular diamond shapes for engagement rings today. It was developed to fulfill the desire for a square-shaped stone with more brilliance than the traditional step-cut emeralds and squares.
When shopping for your engagement ring, be sure to select a setting that protects the corners of your princess cut diamond. The corners of the stone are the most susceptible to chips.
