If you are on the lookout for a princess cut diamond, whether it is for placement in a necklace, ring, bracelet, or earrings, it is important to know the facts about the beautifully cut diamonds so you can be sure to get the right stone for what you want.
Princess cut diamonds are the second most popular cut of diamonds right after the traditional brilliant round cut diamond.
So how did the princess cut diamond come into being? A man in London was looking to create a diamond cut that would be more economical than the round brilliant cut and that would be able to include more of the circumference of the rough diamond stone with the same brilliancy and sparkle as the round cut diamond. He tested many different versions and styles before settling on the princess cut diamond also known as a square cut diamond. Thus this also made the diamond grow in popularity when it was introduced in the 1960s according to many Denver Wholesalers. Denver is a great place to look for jewelry because of the wide variety of jewelry stores that offer a plethora of diamond jewelry. Princess cut diamonds are always a modern choice that is always fashionable in a stunning white or yellow gold setting. A princess cut diamond will look square on the top, but if you further inspect the stone you will find that a well cut stone when turned over will be in the shape of a pyramid with a point at the end. This cut is what allows the light to still shine through and reflect off the stone.
