Trends in the Diamond World
Research has it that majority of gemstone cravers in the world have an immense fondness for the brilliant round cut diamond stone, mostly embedded in the safety of a strong metallic setting. However, since the past five decades, there has been a new entrant in design and trend that has grown to become the second best sought style in diamond selection after the brilliant round. This chiseled appeal is seen in princess cut diamond rings and pendants.
While you consider which style of diamond cut radiates more beautifully on your finger, it is important to discuss with your jeweler the setting that will hold your precious diamond firmly in place. To determine the right setting, you will have to consider your day to day activities, your personal preferences based on the final look of the setting on the ring and the cost that you will eventually incur by that selection.
Although the invisible setting is the most luring, the claw-like prong, bezel and semi-bezel is more popular. This is because these setting comparatively expose the stone to more light. Little do buyers consider that the stones will be resultantly exposed to an equal amount of damage! A channel setting however is most secure and therefore a tad bit more costly. Princess cut diamonds rings are conventionally set in delicate V-shaped prongs that expose the stones to just the right amount of light. The channel setting can also work here which make these rings look posh yet dainty and reflect great elegance.
Square princess cut diamonds rings will weigh more than traditional round diamond rings because the latter is cut off at the edges to be rounded off. Yet the former is usually cheaper, only because it retains more crystal weight; which is why it is a favorite among most diamond cutters.
