The smooth lines and gorgeous angles of princess cut diamonds (also known as Tiffany style) are a modern and elegant choice. One of the most popular designs, these diamonds are made to maximize radiance while maintaining a stylish square shape. These stunning gems dazzle in beautiful  solitaire or three stone settings, and bring a modern glamour to antique or contemporary styles.

Characteristics of the Princess Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

The princess cut diamond is a member of the “fancy shapes” family of diamond cut. It is a type of mixed diamond cut or modified brilliant which uses the techniques necessary to make both modified brilliant cuts and step cuts.

This diamond shape can have a wide range of number of facets, anywhere from 53 to 144 facets. This is mainly determined by the shape (square vs. rectangular) and the way that the pavillion is cut.

The majority of princess cuts include 58 or 76 facets. Cuts with fewer than 50 facets will not get the famous brilliance and fire that this cut is known for.

Why Choose a Princess Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

There are quite a few reasons why you may want to opt for a princess cut diamond over the more popular brilliant round cut. For one, they’re typically cheaper. Carat per carat, they cost less than other cuts. This is because you have less waste diamond when cutting a princess cut than other cuts.

You can further increase the savings you get by going for a rectangular shaped princess cut. These are cheaper than the square cuts.

Another factor you should consider when deciding what cut to opt for is the amount of prongs you want to use in your setting. For many on the go people, having very elaborate rings with many prongs can be a nuisance. Princess cut diamond rings are perfect for a 4 prong ring.

If you’re looking for a more modern style of engagement ring, princess cuts are the perfect pick. These stones are gorgeous when used in stylish channel settings in which the diamonds are secured between vertical metal walls, creating a channel around them. The princess diamond cut also works well in a floral filigree setting, the cushion princess setting, or the princess diamond wrap.

The History of the Princess Cut

Unlike the cushion cut, princess cut is one of the newer diamond cuts, having been created during the 1960s. It has become more popular lately as a more distinctive alternative to the more popular round brilliant cut.

This cut originated in the early form of the French cut, having a step-modified Double-French or Cross cut crown and a variety of unique, chevron-shaped facets in the pavilion which, when combined, lend a distinct cross-shaped reflection when the stone is viewed directly through the table.

I found Jacob Mercari on internet. At first I was skeptical with Greg. After several discussions. he made me feel comfortable and took his time in explaining the 4c's and provided me options for my diamond earrings purchase - no pressure. It was a surprise birthday gift for my wife. He's very professional and answered all my inquiries in a timely manner. We were very happy and satisfied with Greg. I would recommend him.

Dealing with Gregory Jacobson at Jacob Mercari, was an absolute joy. After painstakingly searching for a professional outfit which you could trust, I couldn't be more pleased to have purchased a ring from the company. My fiancee and I were beyond happy with the outcome of the ring quality, price and delivery time. We will definitely be going back to deal with Gregory Jacobson at Jacob Mercari, and will strongly suggest anyone looking for jewelry to only deal with Gregory Jacobson at Jacob Mercari! Thanks again!

My overall experience with Jacob Mercari was educational, value-added, and fun! And my impressions of Greg as an individual are that he is patient, meticulous about providing quality, and above all trustworthy.Greg far exceeded my expectations with regards to 3 custom rings (1 engagement, 2 wedding bands); however, what truly stands out is not the final product (which is amazing) but rather the process Greg takes you on.He goes above and beyond to invest into you as a customer. What I mean by this is that Greg takes the time to educate you on the industry as a whole, his company, the process, and is more than willing to answer any questions you may have at any time. He does all of this without any commitments from you monetarily or otherwise, and even if you do not make a purchase, after meeting Greg you will be more informed and prepared to make smart purchasing decisions. My absolute favorite part of the entire process is working with Greg to design the rings. He is a great listener and is able to translate your thoughts effectively into a great design. It’s also really helpful when you can touch and feel loose stones and example settings, as you really begin to understand what it takes to put a ring together. As a next step, you work with Greg to review 3D renderings of your design and have an opportunity to make sure all the fine details that truly make your ring unique are taken care of (the graphics are pretty cool too).It’s at this point in the process you leave things in Greg’s very capable hands. He provides frequent updates on the progress of your rings, and he is sure to follow-up if there are questions about the details – I really appreciate that he doesn’t make any assumptions on your behalf and that he ensures you are comfortable throughout the entire process.In the end, what you are left with is something truly unique and something you really feel you’ve had a part in putting together (as opposed to just picking out something off of a retail store shelf).I have and will continue to endorse Greg to my friends and family!

I recently purchased a custom engagement ring. Having done my research I knew Jacob Mercari had great ratings, and my experience backs up why they have 5-star ratings time and time again! I vaguely knew what I was looking for prior to my first visit, but Greg worked with me to design the perfect engagement ring! My fiance is over the moon about how amazing her ring is! Initially I feared my tight timeline would be an issue, but Greg made sure the ring was ready very quickly. And the quality... wow! I guarantee you will not be disappointed buying a ring here!

I think I visited 7 different jewellers across Toronto (and online!), but found Jacob Mercari to offer the best selection, value, and service. Instead of pushiness and deception, I found graciousness, excellent knowledge of the market, and integrity. My fiancée loved the ring -- the diamond as well as the artistic setting. Couldn't recommend them higher.

I must admit this was the most unexpected wonderful experience I've had in all my years of shopping for jewelry. I did not know what to expect going in but I think I prefer this than going into a store. It is a private and personable experience which does not make you feel like you are in a rushed situation.Greg was kind, knowledgeable and patient enough to listen to what I wanted, to give me options that lined up with what I needed (rather what she said she wanted, because that's how it really is when you're buying an engagement ring). I really appreciate the services offered and the work done. A truly beautifully designed ring that was ready by the date I said I would have needed it. Fantastic service and exceptional professionalism. I will continue to use his services as he is now my go to jeweler.

If I could give 6/5 stars, I would. My experience with Jacob Mercari was nothing short of perfect. I worked with Greg on my engagement ring, and from the very first meeting through finished product his customer experience was above and beyond. He made me very comfortable with the whole diamond buying experience, gave me much knowledge on the subject and was never pushy with options or even working with his company. We created a custom piece, stayed in budget and my fiance could not be happier with the finished product. I visited numerous other jewelers and can say without a doubt I made the right decision. I highly recommend Jacob Mercari for anyone looking for an engagement ring.

Greg was very responsive to us when we had questions all the way through the process of having an engagement ring made. Even before we committed to purchasing anything, he was quick to respond to emails. Greg is very professional, genuine, and accommodating. He would meet with us on his days off, since we were coming from outside the city. We had very specific requests about the ring and Greg was able to meet all the requests within our budget, and even told us we would be saving money on purchasing lab-created diamonds instead of mined ones. Where we saved on the diamonds, he informed us he could cast the ring in platinum instead of gold. We had a design in mind for the engagement ring, Greg and his team were able to provide us with a render of the ring before committing to casting it, which was nice to see. Included in the price of the ring, was an annual cleaning service, as well as inspecting the ring for damage. It is a nice touch to great service. Very much appreciated. We would recommend Greg to anyone we know personally, and would approach him again in the future for other custom jewelry.

Greg was a pleasure to work with! My engagement ring had diamonds 3 quarters around the band and I wanted to make it an eternity by adding more diamonds. He did this in one day!! Plus he cleaned & polished the ring so it looks bright and sparkly. I am extremely happy with the service, price and the result. Would definitely recommend Jacob Mercari to anyone who's looking for an excellent jeweler in Toronto.
