According to the engagement ring experts at The Jewellery Editor, there’s one type of ring in particular that’s been soaring in popularity as of late for a very distinct reason. Princess-cut diamond rings (you can’t beat the name) have become the second most popular cut for engagement rings, after solitaire. Aside from the apparent beauty of a princess-cut ring, it’s perhaps the most budget-friendly of diamond cuts. The reason? You get more bang for your buck. Let us explain.

Since the corners of the diamond are left intact, it will be bigger than a round diamond of the same width, as less of the rough diamond has to be cut away when forming a square shape. Furthermore, princess diamonds are cut in the shape of a pyramid, and with four slanted sides, the cut has even more sparkle than other square diamonds due to the way the light is dispersed. Makes sense, right? Now that you’re in then know, keep scrolling to shop a few of our favorite princess-cut engagement rings.
