Princette™ diamonds are Princess-cut baguette diamonds, meaning they are brilliant-cut. Princette diamonds are cut either as straight baguettes or as tapered baguettes, which form a trapezoidal shape. Traditionally, baguettes have been narrow-rectangular in shape and step cut.
Princess cut diamonds have a modified brilliant cut instead of a step cut. This produces a much more brilliant diamond than the traditional step cut.
Princette is the same basic shape as traditional, step-cut baguettes and tapered baguettes, except that it is faceted like a Princess cut diamond with approximately 48 facets. It is available only in mounted jewelry in platinum with 18-karat gold accents. The cut was developed by an Israeli diamond cutter and was on the market for a number of years before Mark Silverstein Diamond Import Co. trademarked the name about 14 years ago. The Princette is available in a variety of sizes with 10- to 20-pointers being the most popular.
The Princette primarily is used as a bridal jewelry stone. The company has about 400 mountings in its bridal line, including channel and prong settings for semi-mounts and bands. The stones are not sold loose.
