A princess cut diamond is pyramid shaped with a square top. It can occasionally be referred to as ‘square modified brilliant’. As the princess cut does not have standardised cut grading there are factors that contribute to the ideal cut, such as table proportions, crown and pavilion angles as well as depth. For an ideal cut the pavilion angles must be symmetrical to enable maximum light reflection within the stone, creating brilliance and fire. The width to length ratio of the stone must also be considered in order to cut the perfect stone. Symmetry must be excellent in the Metal Urges princess cut diamonds. The princess cut on average contains approximately 66 facets, where the round brilliant cut has 58.
To achieve our stunning princess cut, our stone cutters must start with the finest quality rough diamond. The princess cut diamonds are usually square, however instead of a step cut, an adapted arrangement of facet cuts is conducted to produce a beautifully radiant piece. The princess cut displays the same degree of brilliance as the round brilliant, however as this cut has sharp edges, it can bring some limitations to design. The square corners require protection as to not damage the edges or the wearer. Therefore the princess cut is usually set V-claw, bezel or four-claw.

Diamonds are the hardest material known to man, scoring a 10 on the Mohs scale, resulting in amazing durability and sustainability. Buy one diamond and it will last forever. The only material that can scratch a diamond is another diamond. Diamonds are the only gem that is made by one single mineral element, carbon. Typically a diamond is 99.5% carbon with the other .5% made up by trace elements. These trace elements can affect the shape and colour of the diamond. No two diamonds are the same, the 4 C’s are used to asses the quality of the diamond, thanks to this guide, customers can know exactly what they are purchasing, and the quality of diamonds are a universal language. These 4 all-important C’s are Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight.
Diamonds are among nature’s most rare and precious creations. Their beauty is second to none. Most are considered primeval, forming over billions of years. They are formed under extremely high temperatures approximately 160 kilometres beneath the surface of the earth. The combination of crystal structure, chemical composition and their formation process creates a diamond that is unique and incredibly precious. The most valued diamonds are colourless and pure.
