    Hey all,

    Just wanted to ask a quick question. All things being equal, which cut is generally more expensive the brilliant or the princess? I have been to several places and they have given me different answers each time and I want a concrete answer.

    thanks!

    A brilliant is more expesive per carat, but round is usually cheaper per square mm of spread or surface area.
    Princess is one of the highest yeilding ways a cutter can make money out of rough.

    They are so popular at present that when all 50% of the new marriages break up in 5 years time e-bay and the likes will be flooded with princess cuts.

    Rounds cost more per carat than princess.

    Thank you guys for all your help.

    I didn't know that the princess cut was getting that popular. I thought that the round was still the number one choice.
