The most popular shape for diamonds is the Round Brilliant Cut. The main reason for this is that round brilliant cut diamonds consistently out perform other cuts with their beautiful sparkle and scintillation. Closely following the round brilliant cut diamond in popularity are Princess Cut Diamonds, which can also be referred to as Modified Square Brilliant Cut Diamonds or Square Cut Diamonds. Princess Cut diamonds are generally slightly less expensive than Round Brilliant Cut diamonds as cutting them requires less to be removed from the rough diamond.
