I don’t think they’re a fad. They’ve been around for quite a long time now and I cannot see them dying out in the near future.

Personally, I don’t think they’re a fad.

No. Timeless style.

I have my mom’s princess cut and she was given it in the 80s, so if it’s a fad it’s a 30 year one that doesn’t seem to be going away soon 🙂

No not a fad. They’ve been around a whie and think they are here to stay! I think they are more timeless .

Nope, I do not think so at all. 

I also think the setting of rings tend to date them more than the cut of the stone.

I don’t think they’re a “fad”, but I do think that in 20 years they’ll be indicative of these times. I don’t think they’ll ever be “out”, since the style is very elegant.

I agree with @sarahbabs: , it’s really more about the setting. 

I think I read somewhere that the true princess cut was developed in the 80’s, but it’s very very close to a cut from the 60’s.  I feel like anything from the mid century (40’s – 60’s) is awesome  and vintage enough to never go out of style – if that makes any sense 🙂

@sarahbabs:  +1 I don’t look at marquise diamonds and think “80’s” if they’re set in a white gold solitaire, but if they’re in yellow gold with some sort of swoopy setting with smaller diamonds as well I do.

But as a general rule, if you don’t have a plain solitaire the fact remains that it will eventually likely look dated. Not necessarily in a bad way (e.g. my grandmother’s rings are stunning but you can tell just at a glace that they’re from the 60’s), but dated nonetheless. And I say this as someone with a ring that will likely look dated in 50 years.

No, way!  Princess cut diamonds are and have always been among the most popular cuts because they are timeless.

Who cares?  When you’ve been married for 30 years, you don’t want a ring that looks brand new.  You want people to know that you’ve been married for a long time.

@MrsVanilla:  +1 I don’t think they’re a fad but I don’t think they’ll be as popular in 20 years.
