Princess cuts are a popular choice for engagement rings, but surprisingly their cost comparatively to other cuts is fairly average. If cost is a deciding factor, the princess cut is still significantly lower than the round cut, but still offers a similar amount of sparkle.
The princess cut most worn today was inspired by a few different cuts coming out of the 1970’s. There was a cut called the ‘Barion’, cut with 80 facets. This was a very intricate design and tricky to copy. The ‘Quadrillion’ cut followed the Barion, but almost cutting the number of facets in half with only 49. The princess cut combined the two designs into a modern style and uses more of the rough stone, allowing for a lower cost diamond.
Imagine a room full of mirrors and lights. Facets are the smooth surfaces all over the diamond, reflecting light, creating sparkle, and showing off the geometrical pattern of the diamond shape. The princess cut contains anywhere between 50 and 58 facets, which is why it gives off a similar sparkle effect to the round cut.
The princess cut is most known for its square shape, however there are a few different options for the corner shape and the geometrical pattern found within the diamond.
