A Princess-cut diamond is traditionally a square diamond with stunning brilliance, unlike the round cut diamonds. One of the most loved and beautiful diamond cuts, a princess-cut engagement ring not only has a dreamy feel to it but also looks incredibly striking. Known to combine the brilliance of a round cut diamond with a rectangular or square shape, this style of engagement ring has always been quite a rage.
If you are looking for a sparkler for your lady-love, a princess cut diamond ring will most likely win their heart! While a round cut single diamond might be the most expensive due to its reflecting properties, a princess-cut diamond ring will look more radiant because of several smaller diamonds lining the centre stone.
