Princess cut diamond rings are one of the most popular diamond cuts on the market – second only to the round brilliant diamond. They have been popular for years and will continue to be a popular diamond choice for their simplistic and classic look.

A Relatively new diamond cut compared to others, and often referred to as a square modified brilliant, it was first created in the early 1980s, but quickly became one of the most sought after cuts, especially for engagement rings and diamond earrings.
Similar to other cuts such as oval and round cut diamonds, princess cut diamonds are preferred because of their flexibility. They can be used in almost any style of ring, making them a great choice when designing a custom diamond ring. Whether you are looking for one large carat stone or multiple princess cut diamonds, you will have no trouble finding diamonds to create your ideal engagement ring.
