This beautiful three stone diamond ring has a 1.03 carat round brilliant diamond set in a custom 18-karat yellow gold and platinum mounting with 0.35 total carat weight matched tapered baguette diamonds.
The round brilliant diamond measures 6.60 x 6.55 x 3.98 mm. The first two measurements are the shortest and longest diameter diamond measurement while the last measurement is the depth of the diamond. This round brilliant cut diamond has a 60.5% depth percentage and a 56% table percentage. We advocate round diamonds with a depth of 59-62.5% and table of 53-59% for optimal diamond cut. Symmetry is more important with round diamonds than with fancy shapes so we recommend at least Very Good for symmetry and prefer at least Good rating for polish.
The most sought after diamond shape is the round brilliant diamond because it is the diamond cut with the most brilliance and it has great versatility in a wide variety of jewelry. The brilliance and sparkle of the round brilliant diamond creates extraordinary beauty. You may have come across the term called “Ideal Cut” while researching your diamond purchase. This term refers to the effort to cut a round diamond with the best proportions possible to achieve the maximum brilliance.
Today’s modern round brilliant diamond is cut precisely to maximize the diamond’s brilliance, fire and size. The round brilliant shape is regularly the most expensive diamond cut for several reasons. Cutting the round diamond shape from the rough (unpolished) diamond crystal usually results in more diamond carat-weight loss than other shapes. It also takes more skill and time to accurately cut and polish a round diamond than most other classical diamond shapes. Finally, the round brilliant diamond is the most popular diamond shape so the law of supply and demand increases the price of round brilliant diamonds.

A tapered baguette is a relatively small, elongated diamond where the two long sides taper inward to form a long trapezoidal shape. The word “baguette” is a French word for a long, narrow loaf of bread. The tapered baguette is a step cut with the classic elegance of the emerald shape and not the sparkle of brilliant cuts. The simple, geometric shape has a classic sheen to it and is a good contrast with brilliant cut shapes that have more fire and sparkle. The step-cut appearance is unforgiving in terms of clarity as little imperfections are much easier to see than in brilliant cuts, which have many more facets hiding inclusions. The matched tapered baguettes measure 4.7 x 2.7 x 1.5 mm. The first diamond measurement is the length of the tapered baguette. The second measurement is the widest part of the tapered baguette adjacent to the center diamond while the third measurement is the narrowest width of the tapered baguette
