  Princess-Cut Diamond:


  The princess-cut is considerably more popular than the other square diamond shapes. Diamonds that appear square to the unaided eye are graded by GIA as Square Modified Brilliant. Many princess-cut diamonds can appear rectangular in shape, but the Blue Nile Signature Collection contains only diamonds that appear square in shape, with length to width ratios no greater than 1-1.05.
