The Round Brilliant:
The queen of the diamond market, the round brilliant cut is not only the industry standard but is also the most researched and popular diamond shape ever designed. The round brilliant was conceived in the mid 17th century. The modern classic we know today was developed by Marcel Tolkowsky in 1919 and is now known as the Tolkosky Ideal Cut. With a total of 58 facets, this beauty is the most brilliant of all the diamond shapes. Timelessly elegant, the round brilliant has not and will not ever go out of style.
Brilliant cut diamonds have triangular and kite shaped facets that radiate from a diamond’s center outwards. This brillianteering intensifies a diamond’s fire, scintillation, and brilliance giving the stone “life.”
