What is a Round brilliant-cut diamond?
Diamonds can be cut in all sorts of shapes, round being one of them. Even round diamonds can be cut in multiple ways. The modern cut, called "brilliant-cut", was developed in the 1900s and displays 58 facets, thus maximizing brilliance and fire, more commonly known as sparkle!

Are round diamonds more expensive?
Yes and no.
Round diamonds are the most expensive diamond shape because:
- it is the most required shape: extremely popular, about 85% of engagement rings bought are round, driving round diamond´s prices up.
- round diamonds lose the most rough: To give a diamond its final shape, diamond cutters need to cut the rough stone and create facets. For round diamonds, a lot of the rough diamond needs to be cut away, thus driving the price per carat of round diamonds up.
Round diamonds are expensive but you can play with a round diamond´s quality (and price!) a lot more than you can do for oval or emerald-cut diamonds.
