The round brilliant diamond is the most sought after diamond shape because it is diamond cut with the most brilliance and it has great versatility in a wide variety of jewelry. As well as diamond engagement rings, the round brilliant is very popular diamond shape for diamond pendants and diamond earrings. The brilliance and sparkle of the round brilliant diamond produces incomparable beauty, which can be appreciated by all observers. You may have heard of a term called “Ideal Cut” while researching diamonds. This term explains the attempt to cut a round diamond with the finest 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 usually the most expensive diamond cut for several reasons. Cutting the round diamond shape from the rough (unpolished) diamond crystal typically results in more diamond carat-weight loss than other diamond shapes. It also takes more experience and time to properly cut and polish a round diamond than most other classical diamond shapes. In conclusion, the round is the most popular diamond shape so the law of supply and demand increases the price of round brilliant diamonds.
