Why choose a round brilliant cut engagement ring?

The round brilliant cut was forged with the intention of creating a stone that would release maximum fire, brilliance and scintillation, and it was a success. The circular cut features 57 facets and the angle of each facet has been precisely calculated to reflect the most light to create a fiery display from even the smallest amount of movement.

The cut is defined as brilliant because it resembles two pyramids placed base to base, which enhances the stone’s sparkle with the least possible sacrifice in carat weight. Diamonds with a round brilliant cut most closely follow the natural contours of rough diamonds, which means less cutting is required to shape the stone, which also leads to less waste and larger carat weight. So, not only is the round brilliant cut going to give you maximum sparkle, but it will offer excellent value for money too.

The round brilliant cut defies ostentation and revels in simplicity, needing no fancy setting, which is why the round brilliant cut continues to be the most popular style for brides-to-be.
