Princess Cut Rings
Characteristics of Princess Cut Engagement RingsWhen you’re getting engaged, there’s nothing that’ll make you feel more like a queen than a princess—a princess cut ring, that is! For being a relatively simple shape, the square princess-cut diamond is wonderfully striking. That’s thanks to the fact that the princess cut uses the brilliant cut style; each stone is packed with enough facets to make it sparkle like a round-cut diamond. Because the princess cut was invented in the 70s, the princess cut engagement rings we offer at Thom Duma Fine Jewelers present ultra-modern looks. If you want an engagement ring that’s simultaneously arresting and cool, express yourself with a princess-cut diamond!
Popular Princess Cut Ring Collections at Thom Duma Fine JewelersMichael M is one of our favorite designers of princess cut rings, because there are few designers who embrace the modernity of the shape with as much gusto as the Los Angeles-based atelier. All it takes is one look at the designer’s Monaco and Princess collections to see what we mean: Right-angle prongs, princess-cut side stones set in channels, and diamond-trapezoidal bezels all work together to create a fabulously modern chic look. Tacori also embraces the princess cut, going in the direction of sheer opulence in their RoyalT collection. It isn’t enough to have a two-carat or greater center stone; RoyalT uses platinum and tremendous baguette diamond halos, as well as surprising cadillac-cut diamonds for that extra pop.
Despite the modernity of the princess cut, there are designers who embrace the look by utilizing vintage settings to display it. One of those designers is Gabriel & Co., whose Entwined collection takes diamond-studded halos that would have been de rigueur in the Art Deco period and sets them with lacy pavilions. These pavilions feature pave-set stones, which add the refinement of 1920s France to each ring. And of course, if you’re looking to embrace the beauty of the princess-cut diamond for its own sake, you might find a lot to appreciate in the Classic Beauty collection from Zeghani. Graceful curved shanks and crowns are glamorously feminine without stealing too much of the show from the square diamond at their heart.
