The Princess Cut Diamond

The Princess Cut Diamond

The princess cut was first developed in 1979 and has caught the eye of brides-to-be ever since, becoming the second most popular choice of diamond. Inspired by the early style of “French” cut diamonds, the modern techniques used in the Princess Cut bring a brilliance unlike most. It is one of the few mixed-cut designs on offer, with elements of both brilliant and step cuts that provide a sense of depth and sparkle. Unlike most other diamonds, the facets of the princess cut are arranged in a way that makes colour most visible in the corners. These features give it a unique yet simply beautiful appearance that has captured the hearts of brides across the world for almost 40 years.


Princess Cut Diamond

The face-up shape of the princess cut diamond is square. While its profile or side-on shape is similar to that of an inverted pyramid with four bevelled sides.

Halo Setting

Smaller diamonds encircle the featured stone to enhance the size and brilliance of the ring.

Cathedral Setting

The appearance of this setting is similar to cathedral arches in the way that they support and secure the featured stone.

Milgrain Detail

Milgrain translates to “a thousand grains”, referring to the intricate detailing along the edge of the metal.

Half Pavé

Half pave designs feature diamonds along the band across half the ring, creating additional sparkle and appeal without overpowering the design.


Split Band

Split bands give depth and modern style to princess cut rings. When paired with channel set diamonds, this engagement ring setting creates a stunning design that emphasises the natural beauty of your featured diamond.

Solitaire Designs

This style may seem simple, but it is the best way to showcase your princess cut diamond without distraction. The shape and width of the prongs and band create a balanced and traditional design that is perfect for your fairytale proposal.
