When my husband and I first started looking at erings I wanted a princess cut.  That would have been back in 2003 as well.  It seems like princess stones hit an upswing about that time, mabe a bit before.

I would say that they started to become more popular in the last 10 years. They tend to have a very big table, which is what my jeweler attributes to their popularity. 

Personally, a lot of women I know have them, so I wanted something different.

Perhaps its because this cut would have been considered by some to be a relatively newer cut? I am older and had never even heard of princess cut diamonds until one of my younger cousins became engaged about 10-15 years ago. According to Wikipedia, princess cut diamonds were introduced in the 1960s, however.

@JustLove25:  I found that they were popular among my just getting engaged or hoping to get engaged friends.  I didn’t see a lot of them roaming around the street as much as in conversation with fellow soon to be engaged or newly engaged girls.

I have seen them equally with the round. To me any shape in a solitaire is a “classic”

I have told my mother since I was about a teenager that my ring would be white old, square cut , solitaire.  I’m 32 now, so this has been a while!  I just think it’s classic, not really a trend.

I originally wanted a pricess cut ever since I could imagine before i was engaged, but then the more research I did, the more i went to soliaire due to that you would have to spend more to get a more sparkly princess cut than it would for a round. I dont have any friends who have a princess…But yeah I donno when the trend started!

Well I’m a child of the 80s and I always thought that they were just an alternative to the round or emerald cut.  I didn’t know they had only been around for about 20 years before me.  

I always assumed as a kid that I’d get a round but now I’m just in love with the princess cut (halo).

I would not say the princess cut is a trend.  It’s not going to go out of style, because it’s become a standard shape. When I worked in the jewelry industry, round and princess were the two most popular shapes.  That being said, it was usually the brides who said they wanted something different from the typical round diamond that went for the square  princess cut. So in that regard, some people probably consider it more trendy, because the shape is not as old as the equally propular round shape.
