Propose to Your Princess With Princess Cut Engagement Rings
In 1980, Israel Itzkowtiz Betzalel Ambar created the
princess cut diamond. Little did they
realize this cut was destined to become one of the most popular cuts for an
engagement ring. In fact, it is second
in popularity behind round cut diamonds.
Most jewelers attribute this to its flexibility. The stone works well with nearly any style of
Good Price Point
If you are looking for princess cut engagement rings, you
will be pleased to know that princess cut diamonds are actually a little bit
less expensive than round cut diamonds.
These diamonds are cut from an octahedron rough stone. Half of the stone is used to compose a
princess cut. Thus, with one octahedron,
two diamonds can be formed. During the
formation process, 60 percent of the weight of the rough stone is
retained. This means that less is wasted
during the construction of this stone, and it is more efficient to make a
princess cut. Therefore, it is only
natural to charge less for the stone. For more information on the princess cut read our guide on the bottom of this page.
To understand how princess cut diamonds differ from the
alternative, it is helpful to understand a few comparisons. A princess cut diamond that has the same
carat measurement, as a round diamond will probably show 10 percent less stone
on the crown. However, the measurement
from the corner to corner of the princess cut is actually 15 percent greater
than the diameter of the round diamond.
This makes many people assume that princess cut engagement rings are
larger in size.
Square or Rectangle
Most people assume that the princess cut is square, with all
four sides of the stone being equal in length. This is the traditional shape
for the cut. However, there are many
stones that are slightly rectangular. It
can be hard to tell if the cut is not perfectly square, and a lot of buyers
prefer it to be a little more rectangular.
To help buyers know how square the diamond is, length-to-width ratios
are provided. The closer the number is
to one, the squarer the diamond is. This
means the diamond will usually cost more money.
