Princess Cut Diamond
A princess cut diamond is the next most popular diamond cut. Becoming popular in the 1960's, the princess-cut diamond is a square or rectangular shaped diamond that is similar to that of an inverted pyramid with four beveled sides and is sometimes referred to as a square modified brilliant diamond.
The princess-cut diamond will display the same degree of brilliance (sparkle or fire) that a round brilliant cut diamond will. The difference between the two is the princess-cut diamond's faceting style and is less expensive than that of a round brilliant cut diamond. The reason why the princess-cut diamond is less expensive than the round brilliant diamond is that it retains a bout 80% of the rough diamond, as opposed to the round brilliant, which retains only about 50% of the rough. The ability to retain more crystal weight makes this shape popular amongst diamond cutters.
Avital and Co., located in the heart of the world famous Diamond District in New York City (NYC), recommends choosing a setting with prongs when considering a princess-cut diamond. This is because diamonds naturally have flaws in them and with a princess-cut, if there are flaws in the diamond, the most likely area to find these flaws are in the corners of the diamond and this type of setting will hide these flaws and will protect the corners of your diamond. However, if your heart is set on a different type of setting, Avital & Co. will be happy to accommodate your wishes.
