Looking for a diamond that is a little fancier or maybe a bit more regal? Your search stops here!
The Princess diamond was created in 1980 by Israel Itzkowitz, a jeweler in Los Angeles, California. He discovered that this shape retained the brilliance of a Round Brilliant diamond with a more modern geometric appearance.
It currently holds seat number two in the race for most popular diamond shape. Second, only to the ever popular Round Brilliant.
Princess shaped diamonds can be either square or rectangular. They often stand higher off the hand, so they may require more caution to wear. On the other hand, they flatter most hand shapes, including wider fingers.
