Shape Guide: Round Brilliant Cut Diamonds

Round brilliant cut diamonds are a classic for a reason! This is the most popular diamond shape, and cutters have been working with this over hundreds of years to maximize the brilliance and fire of round brilliant cut diamonds.

This cut offers plenty of flexibility within the Four C’s. Because the cut is so faceted, you can compromise on other characteristics (like clarity) to find a budget-friendly diamond that still offers maximum sparkle and impact.

While a diamond’s shape is not part of the Four C’s of Diamonds, it still will have a significant impact on the appearance of your stone. Each diamond shape is cut to different specifications, which will reflect light in unique ways, contributing to the fire and brilliance of the stone.
