You could look into a Flanders cut.. Basically a princess with clipped corners…

My mum, SIL and I all have a princess cut solitaires and none of us have had any problems! My mums is a 3 carat and she’s had it for at least 15 years and it is perfect 🙂

Tabrett Maria:  i have had mine since 2011 and never had a problem. I’m prone to bumping it on desks in my work and it is still perfect

A diamond  in any shape or form is not prone to chipping unless it’s set incorrectly.  The flanders cut is gorgeous, but you could rock the princess without a problem. 

Also those people writing reviews about how princess cut diamonds are more prone to chipping may have purchased enhanced stones [from god knows where].  You’ll be fine!

I have had mine 15months now.  I have knocked it quite a few times but have had no issues with it.

I too have a princess cut engagement/wedding ring. I’ve had mine since 2012 and no problems thus far. It has v prongs, so they sit on the corners of the diamond and protect it pretty well. I wear mine all the time and only remove it for yard work or for mixing something sticky with my hands. I’ve banged it around, but so far it has survived.

I have had 3 princess cut e-rings in the past 18 years and not a problem! I am the klutziest person in the world and have slammed it against every surface imaginable.

I’ve had mine since 2009 and I’ve never had any issues. I agree with the other bees get v prongs or prongs that sit a little bit higher than the corners. Like mine.

I have had several princess cut diamond’s and have never once chipped a stone, and I’ve banged them up and bent the prongs and am not the most careful person. I did however chip my pear diamond within 4 months of owning it. I love princess cuts, so I’d say definitely get one!!!

Tabrett Maria :  So I know this is a late reply, but the stone will mainly chip if you have a thin to very thin girdle, a medium to a thick girlde shouldn’t chip!  Very thick and above will make the stone look smaller.  Also keep in mind that the princess is a “fancy” cut and GIA does not certify a cut grade for any cut other than a round, so whatever cut grade you buy is dependent on the store and can vary from store to store.  I have a thick girlde on my princess, ok so far!  I wear it all the time.
