  1. I have always wondered why some gems are called “princess cut”?
    Any hint?

    • I have just been poking around through blog posts tonight, and found this one. So, I have been looking for an answer to your question, but it seems there’s no real quick and easy answer to it, as in “This particular style of cut was named for, or in honor of, Princess XYZ.”

      The best source I did find, however, is from the co-inventor of that particular cut, Mr. Bez Ambar, who also is responsible for a few others. The link to his page addressing the beginnings of the Princess cut diamond is here ~


      As I said, this was written by the gentleman responsible for the original design. I can’t think of a better source!
