Don't princess cut diamond earrings sound wonderfully royal? It almost sounds like, if you were wearing them, that it would be just fine to have tea with the Queen of England. This, however, is not the case. However, the princess cut has been quite popular recently. I am of the age where many of my friends are getting engaged. The big thing among them has been who has a princess cut and who doesn't.

Is this cut truly as royal as it sounds? Well, it is as royal as it can be for a square. As far as diamond brilliance, or sparkle, is concerned, nothing beats the round diamond. It can be cut for the most brilliance. However, not everyone wants a round diamond. People want to break out of the mold. They still want shine, though. It is this train of thought that brought about the princess cut. It is the brightest cut available for a square diamond.

Make sure you get a setting that covers the four corners. Because they stick out, they are likely to chip. Yes, diamonds are the hardest substance known to man, but this doesn't mean that very small corners can't be nicked. With princess cut, you are set to wear an updated classic anywhere you go. One thing is for certain, when wearing princess cut diamond earrings, no one can call you a square!

The Cut in Princess Cut Diamond Earrings

Some people think that the cut of a diamond is equal to the shape of one. This is not true. If your diamond dealer doesn't know the difference, you need to run, fast. The shape is what the outer perimeter looks like, such as a teardrop, heart, triangle, or round. The cut determines the brilliance of the diamond. The best cuts are Ideal, Premium, Very Good and Good. The lower you go, the less sparkle you get. With princess cut diamond earrings, you shouldn't go lower than Very Good or Good.
