An evolution on the quadrillion cut and the barion cut, a princess cut diamond is the square version of a brilliant cut diamond, sometimes called a square modified brilliant. A princess cut has the same 58 facets as a brilliant cut, but can use approximately 80% of the rough diamond, in contrast to the round brilliant cut which has the corners cut off and therefore can often use only 50% of the rough diamond.
