What Is A Round Brilliant Gemstone Or Diamond?

The round brilliant is usually cut from a rough diamond, which explains why some of its characteristics and contours are similar to many rough diamond crystals. This diamond cut has symmetrical and well-polished poetic curves and contours designed to reflect most of the light entering it. This is what enables it to exude its exceptional brilliance.

What Comprises A Round Brilliant Cut?

The main features of round-brilliant diamonds include:

1. Facets

Facets determine the scintillation level of a diamond cut. Round brilliant pieces typically feature 57 or 58 facets, which fall into three main categories: Table, crown, and pavilion facets. The table facet, usually larger than the other facets, helps collect light from the outside and direct it into the diamond. The crown facets — made up of 32 facets — give the round brilliant its remarkable white scintillation by dispersing the light that penetrates the diamond into white light.

The pavilion is usually located at the lowest pointed part of the round brilliant and is specifically designed to reflect the light through the crown to the observer’s eye. All of these facets work together simultaneously to give the round brilliant its unique look and feel that we all love and cherish.

2.  Clarity, Color

Other than a precision cut, the color and clarity are other factors that ensure a round-cut diamond is stunning. A diamond with some color gives a diamond warmth and beauty from its reflections, but colorless diamonds are the rarest of all. Diamond clarity refers to the degree to which blemishes are present in a single gem. The clearer the diamond, the more valuable it is. That’s why it’s important for buyers to always look for visible blemishes and any inclusions before they buy a diamond.
