In the early 2000s, you just couldn’t watch a proposal on TV or in the movies that didn’t include a princess cut diamond. Princess cuts were all the rage, and for good reason. With their high degree of light return and brilliance, these bold squares burst out onto the scene in the same way that we all burst into the new millennium – like a viral video launched into a world imbued with wireless free Internet, social media and Bluetooth.
When it comes to diamonds, some say it’s okay to throw rocks at girls. Because let’s face it, they may be the hardest substance on Earth, but they’re not really rocks. They’re more like beautiful, mysterious pebbles that cost a fortune and have the power to reflect and refract light in a thousand different directions.
