What Is A Princess Cut? What Are Its Pros And Cons?
Posted: 2020-01-17 - 0 comment(s)

The princess cut is a modern classic with clean square lines and beautiful sparkles. The shape of the princess can be distinguished by its sharp right-angled corners, and it is our second most popular shape after round brilliant cutting. If you prefer a square but want the brilliance of a round-cut lab-grown diamond, a princess cut wedding band is ideal.

Features of princess cut wedding band

Princess cut is a new type of cut created in the 1970s. It is a "hybrid diamond cut" or "decorated diamond" that combines the techniques used to create a polished diamond and a step cut.

The shape of a princess-cut diamond may consist of 53 to 144 facets-but it all depends on the overall shape of the princess-cut diamond (perfect square and thin rectangle) and how the diamond underside (called a pavilion) is cut. Most princess cuts include 58 or 76 cuts-less than 50 cuts will not achieve the high brightness and high fire quality that princesses are known for.

Pros and Cons of Princess Cut Wedding Band

One of the biggest pros to this type of cut is that the princess is a very forgiving cut. Unlike other types of cuts which may accentuate even a minor inclusion, blemish or color tint - like the emerald or Asscher cut - diamonds with less than perfect color and clarity ratings will still look fabulous in a princess cut, because this type of cut will camouflage small imperfections.

As a forgiving cut, couples have more leeway when choosing princes cut engagement rings and wedding bands as diamonds with slightly lower clarity and color characteristics - which are much more affordable - are a terrific option here.

Princess cuts also look amazing in small to large carat sizes because of the exceptional fire and flash qualities the cut yields.

And the clean square princess shape compliments any number of engagement ring styles including the ever popular princess cut solitaire diamond ring, three stone rings, and decorative channel set princess cut wedding bands with smaller princess diamonds set around the bands.

If you are interested in colorful gemstone engagement rings, this type of cut also looks stunning on gemstones. Popular princess cut gemstone styles include the princess cut aquamarine ring and the princess cut emerald ring - but really, any type of gemstone looks absolutely delicious in princess styles.

What about the cons?

The biggest con to this type of cut is the extremely delicate corners on the square shape. The corners can be prone to chipping, even in diamonds, if they are not protected in the right type of setting.

The only other con has to do with the sometimes limited amount of high quality princess cut diamonds available. While it is pretty easy to find so-so princess diamonds - the really fabulous ones with a high facet numbers that really sparkle and flash are not so common.

Whether you are planning a Cinderella-scale wedding or just using your partner's fashion, short skirts for weddings, princess cut wedding band can provide to meet the needs of any couple.
