Round Shaped Diamonds - The Basics

The Basics: Round Diamonds

The modern round brilliant-cut, with 58 facets, has been developed over the last 100 years.

Round diamonds are by far the most popular choice in engagement and wedding rings. The round brilliant-cut best features a diamond's brilliance, fire and scintillation.

Scintillation is the flashes of white light you see as your diamond moves. (This is also called "sparkle.")

Fire (also known as dispersion) is the rainbow effect you see around the top of a well-cut diamond.

Brilliance is the intensity of the reflected white light that comes from the surface as well as the inside of your diamond.
