A Diamond symbolizes deep love, purity, honesty and trust. It remains the most popular choice for engagement rings, not only for its beauty and refinement but also for superior strength and invincibility. Choosing a durable gemstone such as Diamonds, Sapphire and a Moissanite is vital for such a significant occasion, ensuring the longevity for one of the most important pieces of jewelry you will ever own.
Of the many available styles and cuts, the Princess cut Diamond is one of the most elegant and iconic choices for an engagement ring. First making it’s appearance in the 1970s, the modern princess cut Diamond is the second most popular choice for engagement rings, the most common choice being the round cut Diamond, stunning in its own right.
The mesmerizing gleam of the Princess cut with geometric contours and unique pyramid profile makes this cut especially appealing for those with a keen eye for design. The square beveled composition with sharp modern lines lends itself to a range of settings. The solitaire setting highlights a single gem placing focus on the form and brilliance of the princess cut diamond, while the intricate details of vintage inspired settings are enhanced by the continuous lines of this stunning princess cut.
Often the Princess cut diamond will be lower in price than a round cut of equal weight simply because the princess cut retains a high percentage of the raw material with little waste. In turn this creates a greater yield for the diamond cutter remaining a favorite for this reason.
Ultimately the choice of diamond cut and setting will depend on personal taste. The Princess cut Diamond is one of the most versatile and visually striking for those truly passionate about symmetry and design.
