This gorgeous princess cut diamond solitaire ring has a 1.20 carat square modified brilliant cut diamond set in a platinum mounting with a four-prong Solitaire style mounting.
The princess shape diamond measures 6.24 x 6.16 x 3.99 mm so it has a length-to-width ratio of 1.01, which appears square to the eye. The GIA considers shapes square when the length-to-width ratio is 1.05 or less. The princess cut diamond has a 64.8% depth percentage and a 73% table percentage. For princess cut diamonds, we recommend a depth of 58-76% and table of 58-77% with smaller percentages producing bigger size for the carat weight and better cut.
The princess cut diamond is the second most popular diamond shape and it is a great match for women that love the brilliance of their mother’s round diamond but would rather the modern look of a square shape. However, the princess cut diamond is one of the most difficult shapes to set. The corners of the princess shape diamond come to points and are relatively fragile. The four corners of the princess cut diamond are set with durable v-cap prongs which protect the vulnerable corners of the princess cut diamond. The knife-edge shank (band around the finger) typically measures 2.5 mm, but the width can be increased if a wider band is desired.
The Solitaire style setting provides a time enduring, classic look exhibiting the beauty of the princess cut diamond. A Solitaire setting is a great choice for a woman looking for classic elegance. It is also a nice choice for a man who is not quite sure what type of mounting “she” is looking for. You can have a surprise proposal with a beautiful diamond ring even if you only know what diamond shape she prefers. The princess cut diamond should be your focus since it is the focal point and main investment. If you find out your significant other was yearning for a three stone diamond ring or something with an antique appearance, you have not spent thousands of dollars when you choose a Solitaire setting.
