The most popular cuts for diamonds are round brilliant cuts, cushions and princess cut diamond center stones. When Michael Meksian decided to create the Princesse collection, it was with a love of the hard edge on the Princess-shaped diamond, and the stone’s particularly high degree of brilliance within the diamond shape family!
The Princess is also especially beautiful for its chevron-shaped facets in the pavilion, a distinction of the cut that creates a beautiful cross-shaped “look” when viewed from above. In creating Engagement Rings specifically for the Princess cut diamond in the Princesse Collection, it allowed Michael M. to truly highlight the shape of each stone, crafting each ring so that the square-shaped Princess influenced the look and feel of the ring – and so that the sculptural assets of the collection highlighted the center stone’s royal shape and showcased its distinctive details.
