When you think of engagement rings, what shape comes to your mind first? Round cut, right? Well, the popularity of round cut diamond is so much so that it represents over two thirds of all diamonds sold. The round brilliant cut boasts 58 facets which offers it a classic and timeless appearance. The brilliance that it exudes makes it a favourable choice for engagement rings, necklaces and other fine jewellery pieces. Besides brilliance, there are also many other reasons why it is preferred choice for engagement ring and here we have listed a few:
- The fire
The fire of the diamond are the colourful flashes of light that the stone diffuses while under the light. If the round diamond has an exceptional cut, it showcases tremendous amount of fire and hence looks extremely beautiful.
- The shape
Round is a versatile shape for diamond and it not just offers brilliance but is also ideal for standard solitaire settling. This shape doesn’t need the extra side stones to dress up and since it exudes the most fire flashing, it also perfectly complements the colored gemstones.
- The value
Round shape stone holds a good value. Not just this, but even if the trend changes, the versatility allows to change up the initial ring without having to change the centre diamond; this means you can re-do the engagement ring
design or add to the existing ring. In other words, round stone can go well with all settling styles and all cuts and colours of side stones.
- The grading
As we mentioned earlier that round shape has 58 facets, and so with these many facets the internal flaws are easily masked. The fire from the facets further takes the attention away from the tiny inclusions and so all that the buyers see is the perfect clarity. Talking of shapes like emerald and Asscher, they have step-faceted cuts which magnify imperfections and require the buyers to look for diamonds of quality.
- Timeless experience
Round-shaped diamonds have been around for hundreds of years. With the kind of beauty that this shape has, it was and will forever remain in fashion. It is a classic that can be cherished for many more generations to come.
