A Royally Gorgeous Ring
In 1961, a diamond cutter in London named Arpad Nagy created the profile cut; but often referred to it as a princess cut diamond. The name eventually stuck, and thus the modern day princess cut diamond was born. Even though princess cut diamond engagement rings were first introduced in the 1960s, this style still looks as modern and stylish as ever. In fact, it is universally known as the second most popular diamond cut.
A princess cut diamond is square-shaped with 58 facets that are positioned similarly to the facets on round brilliant diamonds. This cut is known for maximizing the diamond’s sparkle, so it is perfect for women who want their diamond to gleam from across the room.
