Diamond Engagemet Ring

If you are looking to buy an engagement ring online the wealth of choice available to you is phenomenal. Internet jewellery stores have quite literally opened up the industry and given couples access to view hundreds of styles of rings, including the modified brilliant cut rings and the dynamic square cut diamond engagement rings, from the privacy and comfort of their own homes. This not only gives them more options then ever before but can save them substantial amounts of money and alleviate much of the stress involved.

But which ring to choose? While the brilliant round diamond solitaires may dominant the market, for a ring that offers an equal amount of sparkle but with a striking and contemporary feel, princess cut engagement rings are unbeatable. Developed in the 1970s after several years of research, the square princess cut was created by Ygal Perlman, Betzalel Ambar and Israel Itzkowitz.

This was not the first square cut for a diamond. Prior to its inception the emerald and Asscher cuts were used, but these were not able to generate the same brilliance and fire. Their flat, broad facets afforded flashes of light and were devastating in their own way but were not known for their sheer scintillation. Forerunners to the princess itself included the profile and the barion cut, created by Basil Watermeyer. This was almost a hybrid of the princess and the emerald, although strict patenting for 25 years meant it was prevented from being widely used.

With previous square cuts, it was necessary to use the very highest standards of diamond because the open facets enabled any flaws to be clearly visible. The princess is able to overcome this to some extent because of the way the facets are laid out. Plus as it is possible to retain as much as 80 percent of the rough diamond with the princess, in comparison to 50 percent with the round, they can create an engagement ring with square setting which is reasonably priced. For an engagement ring that is unforgettable, take a look at the large selection of princess cut solitaire engagement rings online.
