Princess-Shaped Diamonds

As the name suggests, these diamonds are fit for royalty. Princess-shaped diamonds feature a square top, four beveled sides, and a point resembling an upside-down pyramid beneath the surface of the stone. These sparklers are traditional yet unique enough for women who prefer classic style with a twist. Because they use a large amount of uncut stone, these diamonds are often less expensive than stones of a comparable carat weight.

Due to their eye-catching but simple appearance, princess-shaped diamonds work well with nearly any setting. Our selection contains over five hundred princess diamonds to choose from, with many matching settings from our solitaire, halo, classic, and vintage collections.

Princess-Shaped Diamonds - The 4 C’s

Cut — While the shape of a diamond refers to its physical appearance, the cut refers to how a diamond’s features interact with light. Clean Origin only offers diamonds at or above a “good” cut quality. Good, very good, excellent or ideal are the four available options. While there is not an official GIA rating for princess diamonds, we provide a rating system for our princess diamonds to help you determine how well it shines—but you’ll want to look at the stone yourself to decide whether it has what it takes to put a sparkle in your loved one’s eye.

ClarityClarity refers to the amount of inclusions and blemishes in a particular stone. Each diamond will have a different amount of these flaws, ranging from SI2 (having the largest amount) to VVS1 (having the least). While princess diamonds hide flaws better than a round diamond might ensure that your stone passes the “eye test” once you see it; you should not be able to spot any flaws when you examine the stone yourself.

Color — In this case, color refers to the absence of color in a diamond. Clean Origin only offers diamonds from J to D, though there are diamonds with color from Z (containing the most color) to D (containing the least color). While the choice of color in a diamond is very subjective, keep in mind that princess diamonds can hide some color, but are not capable of disguising it all.

Carat — Carat refers to the weight of the diamond, though purchasers often think of carats in terms of size. One of the best assets of princess diamonds is that they often cost less than other stones due to the amount of uncut stone they use—and when you purchase a lab-grown princess diamond, you can save an additional 20-30%. This means that you can purchase the kind of diamond that will sweep your loved one off her feet.

Buyers Tips for Princess-Shaped Diamonds

The cut of a princess-shaped diamond is one of its greatest advantages; not only is it both modern and elegant, but it uses more uncut stone than the typical diamond, lowering the overall price. However, the stone does have sharp corners that need to be protected—especially if your loved one has an extremely hands-on career or hobby. Thankfully, most settings, and especially V-prong settings, will keep the stone safe no matter which conditions the ring is worn in.

Princess Lab-Grown Diamonds

Lab-grown diamonds have the same chemical makeup and appearance as mined diamonds, which means that when you compare two diamonds of the same shape, you will look for the exact same cut, clarity, color, and carat qualities. However, lab-grown diamonds have an added benefit; princess diamonds are already sold at a lower cost than other shaped diamonds, but lab-grown diamonds can add a 20-30% discount on top of that. Because of a much shorter supply chain, princess-shaped lab-grown diamonds have the same qualities as mined diamonds at a more affordable price, allowing purchasers to surprise their significant others with a larger diamond than they thought possible.

Often confused with cut, the shape of a diamond is the physical appearance that it takes. The most popular shape is the round brilliant.
The cut of a diamond determines how effectively light that enters the stone is refracted within and reflected back through the top of the diamond, providing sparkle. The best cut grade is defined as Ideal, followed by Excellent, Very Good, Good, and Fair. Fancy shape stones often do not receive cut grades and will be listed as 'None.'
Carat refers to the actual weight of a diamond and is a unit of measure equal to 0.2 grams. In all diamonds, carat weight is a large contributor to the price of the stone.
The color in diamonds is actually the absence of color, graded on an alphabetical scale from D to Z, with D being a colorless diamond and Z being yellow.
Clarity measures the amount of inclusions or imperfections found in a diamond. The best clarity is VVS1 followed by VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, and SI2. Although other levels of clarity exist, we only carry diamonds with quality we can stand behind.
