This beautiful diamond ring has a 1.31 carat round brilliant diamond set in a custom platinum Verragio engagement ring with three rows of princess cut and pave diamonds with 0.80 total carat weight.
The round brilliant diamond measures 7.07 x 7.03 x 4.26 mm. The first two measurements are the shortest and longest diameter diamond measurement while the last measurement is the diamond depth. This round brilliant cut diamond has a 60.4% depth percentage and a 58% table percentage. We suggest 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 generates extraordinary beauty. You may have come stumbled across the term “Ideal Cut” while reading about diamonds. This term refers to the effort to cut a round diamond with the finest proportions possible to achieve the maximum brilliance.
Today’s modern round brilliant diamond is precisely cut 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 brilliant diamond shape from the rough (unpolished) diamond crystal in general results in more diamond carat-weight loss than other diamond 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 thereby increases the price of round brilliant diamonds.

The custom Verragio diamond ring displays the round brilliant diamond with three flowing lines of alternating pave and channel set diamonds. The four prongs gently curve up from the shank with beautiful pave diamonds. While the center row of diamonds on the band consists of channel-set princess cut diamonds. The four prongs curve out from the base of the band to create an attractive design from the profile view. This custom diamond ring provides a unique look by alternating princess cut diamonds and round brilliant diamonds. The brilliance of the round brilliant sparkle contrasts nicely with the different type of brilliance found in the princess cut channel set diamonds. Often, diamond rings are set too high and are at risk for damage. This Verragio mounting is set at a nice height to exhibit the brilliance and sparkle while protecting the round shape diamond.
