Round Brilliant Cut VS Old European Round Cut
When discussing round brilliant cut diamonds, it is important to understand the difference between older styles and the more modern brilliant round cut. Both of these can be called round cut diamonds but there are some significant differences. The original old European round brilliant diamond was made in a time where there was lower access to high quality diamonds. With newer technologies making the perfect cut easier to achieve, along with a more plentiful supply, we now have the ability to cut diamonds to maximize their beauty.
Because of this, instead of being cut to maximize brilliance, they were specifically cut to enhance colour and clarity.
Characteristics of the Round Cut Diamond Engagement Ring
Unlike princess cut diamond rings, the round brilliant cut consists of 57 or 58 facets (including the culet) and offers exceptional light reflection, also known as brilliance. These diamonds are exceptionally popular, making up the bulk of the diamond industry. However, because of the fact that cutting a brilliant round cut diamond results in the highest amount of lost rough diamond weight, they are also quite expensive.
Why Choose a Round Cut Diamond Engagement Ring
There are a lot of great reasons you should consider a round brilliant cut diamond. Their radiant beauty is unmatched by any cut. Whether used in solitaire, or accented by other supporting diamonds, the sheer brilliance of the round cut is what makes it so popular.
While it does have a higher price, this can be partially circumvented through careful shopping and a bit of knowledge. When choosing a diamond, you can be safe going for an eye clean quality. This means that while there are flaws, they cannot be seen by the naked eye. As a result, they will not be noticed, giving you some savings.
Another way to do so is to plan your setting first. By having this planned ahead of time, you’ll know what areas of the diamond will be covered by the ring. As a result, you can get a stone with flaws in those areas, as they will be blocked from view. This can lead to a lot of savings.
The History of the Round Brilliant Cut Diamond
Traditional round cut diamond rings have been around for many years. However, the old european style evolved in the early 20th century. In 1919, Marcel Tolkowsky sparked a wave of interest in the Round Cut Diamond by publishing his work, “Diamond Design: A Study of the Reflection and Refraction of Light in Diamond” which went into detail of the ideal cut for a round brilliant diamond. Since Tolkowsky’s influential piece was written, the round cut diamond has remained the most common cut.
Before the 20th century, during the Edwardian, Art Deco and Victorian eras, the Old European cut style was popular. As knowledge and technology improved, diamond cutting techniques became more advanced. Cut design shifted toward larger tables, smaller culets, and longer, leaner facets. While old European style diamonds were cut primarily for color, the round brilliant is now cut for its fiery glow and light performance.
