Princess Cut Diamond Solitaire Engagement Ring

Special days mark the milestones of one’s life, and no day is as magical as the day you propose marriage. The French saying, ‘My whole heart for my whole life’ almost sums up the feelings attached to that beautiful ring that forevermore will adorn the finger of the special woman whom you love. Being the wonderful symbol of eternal love and commitment, finding the ideal ring for your girl should be the goal. If conventional is not her style, consider a classic like a beautiful princess cut diamond solitaire engagement ring.

Being admired for its shape, the square or rectangular diamond resembles an inverted pyramid when faced down. Costing a bit less than a round brilliant cut diamond of the same clarity and carat, the princess solitaire also has an advantage of looking bigger in size than its other fancy cut counterparts. The princess cut diamonds are also known as the square modified brilliant cut, and are a favorite among diamond lovers as they exude the same fire, brilliance, luster, and sparkle as the traditional round brilliant cut diamonds.

Most beautiful as a signature diamond in the engagement ring setting, princess cut diamonds also make a fashion statement when set in threes with the center diamond being the largest and the other two being smaller in carat weight. If such a ring catches your fancy, be sure that all the diamonds carry the same clarity and color grade. This will not only magnify the beauty of the diamonds, but also give it an exceptional look and elegance. The most preferred style is the princess cut solitaire ring in yellow or white gold. The simplicity of the design radiates its magnificence, while the diamond emanates the fire of true everlasting love.

Aspects like color, clarity, and carat of a diamond are purely subjective and depend on your preference and budget, but it is advisable to select a diamond based on the type of setting you have in mind. With princess cut, an ideal square diamond should be of a length to width ratio of 1 to 1.05. Since such type of cut hides minor inclusions, you may consider compromising on the clarity grades as long as the color grades are higher on the scale, as the color and cut are prominent factors in the radiance of this stone.

While choosing a setting for your princess cut diamond solitaire engagement ring,be sure to have the corners of the diamond covered with a single prong on each point as the corners carry a risk of being chipped off. You could even opt for ‘V’ shaped prongs which are good for protection, but not necessary. Picturing the ring on her hand may help
you decide on the design and look.
