PRINCESS CUT DIAMONDS
SQUARE MODIFIED BRILLIANT CUT DIAMOND
On your GIA report or dossier you will see the princess cut diamond called a square modified brilliant. Great care needs to be observed when choosing a princess cut diamond. This diamond will not have a cut grade on your GIA report so its a great idea see it or an image of the diamond before you buy as it can be the difference between getting a poor stone or a beautiful one.
Symmetry and polish could be excellent but it wont mean you have a nice stone. You need to see and understand what makes a nice cut and what doesn't.
The stone should be square so the length and width need to be as close to each other as possible or it wont look square.
There are 4 points on this, making them susceptible to damage dont pick a stone that has a very thin girdle (edge) or it could chip.
There are many things to consider when choosing a princess cut diamond for your engagement ring such as the cut, colour, clarity, carat weight but also look out for measurements, girdle thickness, fluorescence, abnormal hues, laser inscriptions, visible flaws, inclusion position and other important factors.
