GIA does not grade cut on Princess diamonds.
AGS does so I'd shop for one that got an AGS 0 cut grade.

I'd also get ASET scope images, or better yet buy an ASET scope and slowly rock the diamond under the scope in person looking for the one that looks best over the largest angle change.

Thanks Kenny...but they are on JA and Bluenile...Not sure whether they can do AGS?
Then, I would not consider those stones.
If those vendors carry NO princess cuts graded by AGS I'd find another vendor.
There are several good ones.

Good cut is more important than color or clarity to the beauty of a diamond.
AGS 0 grade and reflector tools like ASET can help you pick a well cut Princess cut.
You can also opt for a branded Princess cut like ACA from Whiteflash or Cut by Infinity by High Performance Diamonds.

Also I added ASET info to my above post.

do you have the link to the JA one? JA provides images and can also provide ASET images.
