Princess cut diamonds show color in each corner.Becoming popular in recent years, princess cut diamonds are cut in square or rectangular shapes, and offer a faceted brilliance in how they are cut. Princess cut diamonds are unique in that, unlike other shapes that display the diamond’s color mainly in the center of the stone, the princess cut diamond shows distinct color in each corner, as well.

Because of this, when it comes to the Four C’s of Diamonds, you will want to pay close attention to the color of the stone you are choosing, as a princess cut diamond will draw attention to the color you choose.

While a diamond’s shape is not part of the Four C’s of Diamonds, it still will have a significant impact on the appearance of your stone. Each diamond shape is cut to different specifications, which will reflect light in unique ways, contributing to the fire and brilliance of the stone.
