PS stands for princess square cut, a classic style for synthetic quartz. This modified square combines four beveled sides with sharp, pointed corners. PS maximizes the stone's perceived size with its straight edges and cropped corners. The cutting style enhances carat weight retention from the rough crystal. With their orderly square facets, PS synthetics have a clean, symmetrical appearance. The polished beveled edges catch and reflect light beautifully. This versatile cut works for colorless, tinted, and deeply hued quartz. Set in pendant necklaces, PS quartz lends a modern look. These synthetics make distinctive solitaires or fashionable accent stones. The PS cut's balanced proportions showcase quartz's flawless clarity.
