There are many kinds of diamond cuts in the world. The term in diamond cut does not actually referred to the shape of the diamond, but refers to the actual proportions that the diamond possesses. This includes the depth, width, and the uniformity of all of its facets. And these in turn relate to the overall brilliance and features that we look for in a quality diamond. One of the more unique cuts that diamond’s can have is called the princess cut, and is one of the most unique cuts that a diamond can have in the world.
Over the years, a number of different diamond cuts have been developed. A diamond cut constitutes a more or less symmetrical arrangement of facets which together modify the shape and appearance of a diamond crystal. Diamond cutters must consider several factors, such as the shape and size of the crystal, when choosing a cut. The practical history of diamonds princess cuts can be traced back to the Middle Ages, while their theoretical basis was not developed until the turn of the 20th century. Design, creation, and innovation continue to the present day including new technology such as the laser cutting and computer-aided cutting whose complexity, optical performance, and waste reduction have allowed the diamond industry to really go where no gemologist has gone before.
Although one of the most popular of diamond cuts was the modern round brilliant, whose facet arrangements and proportions have been perfected by both mathematical and computer analysis, this popular cut is slowly losing its first place approval to many other cuts including the diamond princess cuts. For example, the step cut baguette-which accentuates a diamond’s luster, whiteness, and clarity, but downplays its fire, was all the rage during the Art Deco period. Now the diamond princess cuts, which accentuates a diamond’s fire and brilliance, rather than its luster, is currently gaining popularity. The princess cut is also popular amongst diamond cutters today.
Overall, the proportions of width and depth have a very large impact on the brilliance of the diamond. The brilliance of the diamond is no more than the reflection of white light that we see when we look into the diamond. The ideal cut is one that allows the light traveling through the diamond to bounce back to the top of the stone. The diamond princess cuts are renowned for their ability to bring out the fire and brilliance of a diamond because of the way the cut creates an almost perfect symmetry and alignment with the facets of the diamond. The next diamond that you get, make sure that it has a diamond princess cut and except nothing less.
