Square Cut Diamond Rings Princess Emerald Cuts

Square Cut Diamond Rings Princess Emerald Cuts are hitting the headlines this week with the largest square diamond in the world unveiled by Graff Diamonds of London. The massive square emerald cut diamond weighs in at 302.37 cts. It was cut from the rough diamond named Lesedi La Rona. The Lesedi La Rona which translates as “Our Light” in the Tswana language was found in the Lucara Karowe Mine in Botswana and at 1109 cts. is the third largest diamond ever to be discovered. The Lesedi La Rona has been cut as a square using the emerald cut style of parallel facets and trimmed corners to maximise the size of this record breaking D colour diamond.

Square emerald cut diamonds are not very common, usually being rectangular. The most popular cut for a square diamond is a princess cut. The princess cut diamond has its corners on making it perfect for angular designs. Like the round brilliant cut diamond it has over 50 facets which when perfectly cut refract the light entering the diamond table is bounced straight back out giving the stone its “brilliance”. The princess cut is usually comprised of either 57 or 76 facets with a maximum ratio of 1:1.05.

Pruden and Smith love to use the clean lines of the princess cut square diamond in their “block” and “twist” collections. In the block collection the princess cut diamond is seated in a sharp sided rub over setting that frames and emphasises its angularity. The rings have a contemporary Art Deco feel and the straight sided settings of the pendants and earstuds a modernist simplicity. The Twist collection uses a tension setting to lend movement and a sense of play to these modern classics.
