Though the Princess Cut is widely traced back to 1961 when London diamond cutter, Arpad Nagy, created a square cut that looked to compound the brilliance of the round brilliant cut, it was later in 1971, when the Barion Cut was renamed the Princess Cut, and later still in 1979 that the Quadrillion Cut was also merged into the Princess Cut approach.
The Princess cut is now second only to the round brilliant cut in popularity and is highly desirable and popular in pendants and engagement and eternity rings. The Princess cut weighs more than the round brilliant cut but there is a higher percentage of rough diamond. This reduces the price of the item but the diamond itself is distinctive and stands out.
The Princess Cut is an inverted pyramid shape, with 4 bevelled sides and enjoys the same high level of light dispersal as the round brilliant cut with facet levels of either 76 or 58. It’s square form also reduces the chances of shadowing and the bow tie effect and maximises the available light.
Another reason for its high popularity is that the Princess Cut creates an elongation to the finger, creating elegance and grace. Its distinctive style is perfect for non-traditional rings and items and, also for personalised designs and appears in many forms, other than wedding rings.
