It definitely looks like a princess cut to me.

soon2bhitched:  Hmmm……It has the crushed ice effect. Maybe it’s because it is square and not rectangular that it looks like a princess cut? I agree the setting looks off somehow. I’d invest in an independant appraisal.

Here is an interesting comparison pic:

Hmm..from the pic posted comparing princess to radiant, it does look like a radient. I think the prongs are pointy, stinking out which could be whats “off” about the setting, other than prongs, I think it’s beautiful!

soon2bhitched:  hey there! By look I ng closley it is a radiant for sure but when you glance it looks like princess cut due to the prongs holding onto the radiant cut diamond. If you were to get a differnet prong it would look more radiant than princess!

I would bet on radiant. I also wouldnt worry about being “ripped off” Because a radiant cut would not be more valuable than a princess cut by any means. Here’s two I found on james allen for comparison for example. I think the price variance would have a lot to do with cut quality. Why not just ask your fiance what the cut is called on the certificate? Lots of people see my rectancular cushion and say “oh! its a princess!” – and it truly does not look like a princess. Honestly It seems like many people dont know theres anything other than round and princess. If you love it you have nothing to worry about.

Can we see a side view of the setting? I see what you mean about it looking round on the sides, could be part of the design though, but I have heard stories before of stones being set in something meant for another shape.

Looks like a radiant to me. I have a princess, and that does not look like a princess. People will call any square stone a princess cut because they usually don’t know any better. Either way, it’s a beautiful ring. The roundness of the setting doesn’t bother me, I kind of like the way it looks.

Hi All!

Congrats to all the newly engaged couples. My bae and I recently got engaged and I honestly couldn’t think of anyone else I would rather spend the rest of my life with. He’s truly my best friend!I notice that a few of you were wondering about the princess cut with halo engagement ring so I wanted to share a photo of mine as it may help you to decide if its the right choice for you! I love this ring, more specificially I love the way the diamond is mounted above the halo.

I have been wondering exactly the same about my beautiful upgrade. It is square but looks more like the pattern that a radiant has…not linear, but scattered sparkles. I love this look!!! I would like to know what it actually is though. If you have found out about yours please update us…I am a few months late reading this thread. Here is a photo of mine:

Princess cut or radiant…does not matter to me. I love both cuts. Not sure why people are concerned about the pointed corners, they are protected by prongs anyway. What do you ladies think about the pattern mine has?

Also see above picture…

They all look like square radiant to me too, they all have that crushed ice look. Mine is a rectangular radiant and has the same internal pattern
