The most famous of all square cuts and extremely popular when applied to a Diamond is the princess cut. This cut typically has 76 facets and is based on the same principles as the round brilliant cut.
When a Diamond is square cut, it can offer real value for money, as less of the gem is lost while being shaped. When a square cut is not based on the brilliant cut (its facets are not triangular or kite shaped), it is then quite simply referred to as a “Square Cut”. These standard square cuts have facets running parallel to the girdle and their number normally varies from 13 to 25. Square cuts are becoming increasingly popular for coloured gems such as Topaz and Smokey Quartz. With a large table facet, this cut is ideal for showing off gems that have great colour and clarity as the eye tends to be drawn into the gem.
