The history behind the princess cut and why you should look at buying one.

The development of the princess cut diamond in the early 1980s was a significant milestone in the world of diamond cutting and jewelry design. Betzalel Ambar and Israel Itzkowitz, two Israeli diamond cutters, were the masterminds behind this innovation. Initially, it was referred to as the "profile cut" because of its unique shape that deviated from traditional diamond cuts.

The princess cut diamond is a square or rectangular shape with pointed corners that create a sharp, sleek look. The cut is designed to maximize the brilliance and sparkle of a diamond by allowing it to reflect more light than other diamond cuts. In a short time, the princess cut diamond became immensely popular among diamond buyers due to its modern, clean lines and exceptional brilliance and fire. The cut provides a unique alternative to the traditional round brilliant cut diamond, which had been the most popular diamond cut for many years.

Today, the princess cut is one of the most popular diamond cuts in the world and is widely used in engagement rings and other fine jewelry. The cut's popularity can be attributed to its versatility, as it can be set in a variety of styles and settings, ranging from classic solitaire designs to more elaborate multi-stone creations.

The princess cut diamond has a timeless and elegant look that appeals to many people looking for a distinctive and stunning piece of jewelry. It's no wonder why it continues to be a favorite among diamond buyers and jewelry enthusiasts alike. Something catch your eye? Take a look at our princess cuts here. Have something else in mind?
