The princess cut diamond engagement ring

When you are looking for the perfect diamond engagement ring for your loved one, chances are big you'll end up deciding between a solitary brilliant or a princess cut diamond. The princess cut is the second most popular diamond shape in the world of engagement rings. The princess cut is actually the square version of the brilliant cut. This diamond shape is an eye-catcher.

Nobody really knows the origin of this cutting method. The princess cut would have its origin in the Golden Sixties. But it are the diamond cutters Ygal Perlman, Betzalel Ambar and Israel Itzkowitz that created in the year 1979 the princess cut as we know it today. The growing popularity of this relatively new diamond shape is mainly in the high yield. When a diamond cutter cuts a diamond into the brilliant shape, he loses approximately 50% of the rough diamond. When cuts the same rough diamond into a princess cut, it retains approximately 80-90% of the original diamond.

Pure beauty! It's no wonder the princess cut diamond engagement ring is currently one of the most popular diamond rings. Because of the square shape, the princess cut is also easy to combine with other diamond shapes. For an even more luxurious look, you can complement the solitaire princess cut with side diamonds on the ring band. Or you can also combine several smaller princess cut diamonds and create the illusion of a single large diamond.
