Beautiful Princess Cut Engagement Ring Settings Under $1,700

A princess cut engagement ring is once again a popular choice for today’s brides. According to trend research and diamond experts, almost 10% of today’s brides are looking for this fancy shape. This was the hottest shape after the round brilliant in the early 2000s when demand was extremely high. It dipped somewhat after that but in the past few years it seems the princess is taking the “reins” once again (see what I did there?)

So what choices does the modern princess who really wants a princess have?

I’ve rounded up our best, most popular drool worthy mountings to house your gorgeous princess cut below. Happy drooling! Ahem browsing.

The Solitaire

Paula ER14982S6W4JJJ setting for a 1.5 carat princess cut, approximate retail price $625.

Solitaires, which let’s face it never go out of style, are an obvious choice for many reasons. They look good on everyone, the setting is not expensive and so the money can really be invested into the stone itself, and also they can be layered with other rings very easily to create an amazing bridal stack.

The Romantic Split Shank

Eliza ER11747S6W44JJ setting for a 1.5 ct princess cut, approximate retail price is $815.

Similar to a solitaire, this gorgeous setting features a no nonsense head. However the fun part is the shank which splits away in delicate, millgrain lined leaf motifs connecting to another leaf station before continuing in solid metal to wrap around your finger. Both romantic and whimsical in feel, this just may be our most loved style.

The Diamond Shank

Sadie ER4122S4W44JJ setting for a 1 carat princess cut, approximate retail price is $965.

Another gorgeous option for ladies who long for a vintage inspired engagement ring is the Sadie style. Featuring marquise shaped stations set with glimmering diamonds in the shank and millgrain and hand engraving on the front and sides, this ring is the epitome of romantic, vintage glamour.

The Simple Halo

Caroline ER14012S3W44JJ setting for a 0.75 carat princes cut, approximate retail is $1,550.

For the halo lover, the Caroline style offers both simplicity and sophistication from the front view and sparkle and glamour in the side view. A row of brilliant round diamonds forms a cushion shaped halo around your princess cut center stone giving it extra sparkle and creating the illusion of a bigger stone. A simple polished shank comes to a graduating point on each side bringing the focus and attention to the center area. A stunning explosion of diamonds in the gallery area is the true surprise, magnifying the wow factor tenfold.

The Halo With Diamond Shank

Carly ER6419S4W44JJ setting for a 1 carat princess cut, approximate retail price is $1,675.

For lovers of all things sparkle, the Carly style features brilliant round diamonds along its cushion shaped halo which beautifully frames your princess cut center. More diamonds continue to line the elegant narrow band stopping halfway around the shank. This cathedral style stunner is simple in silhouette yet glittering with major sparkle.
