I have heard that princess diamonds have a tendency to chip. I am assuming this is due to the girdle size... am I correct? I have been searching for more information on this but have yet to find anything specific to princess girdles, if anyone knows where I can find this information please let me know. I have been looking for diamonds that fall somewhere in the thin-slightly thick area... should I narrow my search, are these sizes bad for a princess? Also, assuming these girdle sizes are acceptable, does it matter if it is thin-slightly thick or should I avoid those and look for something that is slightly thick all around, medium all around, or thin all around? I haven''t been finding as many of these, it seems most girdles I see are medium-slightly thick or thin-slightly thick. Should I avoid anything thinner than thin (slightly thin, ext. thin) or anything thicker than slightly thick (thick, very thick)? Sorry for all the questions but I am trying to learn everything I can before we make our purchase. Thanks in advance for any advice or information.
