Part 2 Princess
Princess Cut Diamonds are brilliant style diamond shapes with sharp, uncut corners. They are typically cut square rather than as a rectangle. Brilliant style refers to a vertical direction crown and pavilion facets, instead of step style horizontal facets. Generally, Pincess Diamond shapes have 76 facets, giving it more brilliance and fire than the brilliance of the Round Diamond shapes. Princess diamond cuts are quickly becoming the most popular cuts for engagement diamond rings.
Round diamonds are the classic diamond shapes and the most commonly sold. These popular choice for diamond engagement rings, are also the traditional choice for all occasions and preferred by many for their personal investment portfolio. The depth percentage for round diamonds should range between 58 to 63 percent and the table percentage should range between 55 to 64 percent. The most desired percentages are at 60 percent, and perfectionist diamond cutters will look for depth of 59 through 62 percent and table of 56 through 58 percent.
