Fun fact: Princess cut engagement rings are the second most popular type of wedding ring on the market today (the first is round brilliant). The reason brides around the world love princess cut engagement rings is because they are typically less expensive than their round counterparts, meaning you can get more bang for your buck when it comes to carat size. When shopping for a princess cut engagement ring, one thing to remember (or to tell your future spouse, if you’re talking openly about it) is that you’ll want to go with a colorless or near colorless diamond (a D-J rating) for this type of cut.
While most brides are fans of simple, solitaire princess cut engagement rings, there are a ton of options when it comes to settings. You can definitely opt for a halo engagement ring setting, or something more unique like a textured band. You can also think outside the box and go for a princess cut stone such as an emerald or other gemstone. I love the princess cut on a gold band, as well!
