A favorite among diamond cutters and couples alike, princess cut engagement rings are the second most popular cut after the round brilliant, and not simply because they waste the least amount of original crystal of any style. Emphasizing the fire and luster of a diamond, the stone has a square surface with a pyramidal base that looks confident alone or glamorously bold with a halo border. Several celebrities are noted fans of halo princess cut engagement rings. The pronounced size and eye-catching chromatic glimmer appeal to individuals eager for a show-off specimen. Because of the uniquely fiery color, this shape works best with a diamond of high clarity, though other gemstones also benefit from the highly light-reflective facets.
