Empress Cut

Topic: Other


My girlfriend wants a diamond in her engagement ring that she says is an empress cut (and no princess is not it) could you tell me what an empress cut looks like?


Hi Dave,

The empress is either rectangular or square branded/ trademarked diamond cut by sirius. The empress compares to a standard radiant and the square empress to a box radiant.
