@FutureMrsHolmes:  You got me really curious! I never really thought about where heart shaped stones come from. I looked it up, and the couple different sites I went to all had the same history for it. This is from the William Goldberg site:

“For such a modern-looking cut, the heart-shaped diamond has a very long history. It was first mentioned in correspondance between the infamous Duke of Milan, Galeazzo Maria Sforza, and Nicodemo in 1463. In 1562, Mary Queen of Scots sent a ring featuring a heart-shaped diamond to Queen Elizabeth. These specially-designed diamonds were exchanged between royalty for hundreds of years, as a symbol of good will and friendship. As they are a difficult cut, especially with the shaping tools used in those times, these diamonds were cherished and valued over other gems.”

Yay hearts ! <3  I’m really curious about the other shapes now 🙂

@FutureMrsHolmes:  It is interesting….its not as romantic as I’d like it to be though, lol. I was hoping for a story like “the poor soldier fom such and such place in such and such war had the heart shaped diamond made and sent to his true love right before his execution. etc.,etc.,..”. I guess I was hoping for more romance that friendship between royalty, lol. I may need to make up my own story about it 😛

Hmmm interesting!

From same site that birdie used:

Princess cut diamonds are found in jewelry of all types, but most often in engagement rings and stud earrings. Their square shape makes the stone perfect for modern diamond jewelry, but like all diamond cuts, they can be beautiful in any setting. Here are some stunning examples of princess cut diamond jewelry:

Is this true? Hmm. I was also expecting a better/ more romantic story!
