What celebrities love a Princess cut ring? Prince Charles, Ashlee Simpson, and Britney Spears, to name a few.
The square shape of the Princess cut was originally called the barion cut. The four-prong setting typically holds the diamond at each corner, and the four sides appear beveled.
It is a mixed cut, meaning that it combines elements of stepped cut stones including the Emerald and the Asscher, and the characteristics of the ever-popular round brilliant cut.
The princess cut diamond offers a sparkle fairly close to the way a round brilliant diamond will sparkle, and the cut also works to minimize flaws that the diamond may have. This is one of the reasons why the Princess cut is so popular.
While some of the vintage cuts, like the cushion cut, date back more than a century, the Princess cut is a fairly new method. It only dates back to the 1960s, and was introduced in London by A. Nagy. The cut was designed to be a more economical version of the round brilliant, where more of the rough stone could be preserved and the diamond would still achieve the fire and sparkle of the brilliant cut.
The square Princess cut has definitely become a more modern-day take on the traditional round look. Ring wearers with long, slender fingers are suited for a Princess cut diamond, as the square shape balances the long vertical lines of the fingers.
