The Princess Cut is relatively new. It is a very attractive cut. Some people like the Princess because it is rectangular and yet has some of the sparkle of a Round brilliant cut.
What to watch out for:
Shape appeal. Judge the attractiveness of the shape by looking at the girdle outline with the unaided eye. Do you find it pleasing? Are the sides even? Watch out for girdles which are too thin, because it is more prone to chipping.
