Commonly referred to as brilliant-cut diamonds, round-cut diamonds are treasured for their intense sparkle, making them the most popular diamond shape. The round cut shape reflects the maximum level of brilliance, with 58 facets—or 57 if there is no culet. Choose a round-cut diamond with an ideal-cut grade for the ultimate degree of sparkle.
Round-cut diamonds are perfect for rings, pendants, bracelets, and earrings. To make a round-cut diamond solitaire ring appear larger, a halo setting is recommended. A halo setting features a band of tiny accent diamonds that encircle and emphasize your center diamond with added sparkle. Or, let your round-cut diamond stand out with an elegant solitaire setting.
All Ritani earth-grown diamonds are certified by the AGS or GIA—the world’s most respected independent grading labs. If you need help selecting a round-cut diamond, contact us at 1-888-9RITANI or [email protected]
Earth Grown Diamonds
Earth grown diamonds are mined from deep under the earth's surface where they have lain dormant for millions of years. When you hold an earth grown diamond, reflect on the immense journey this diamond has taken and the history it has endured.
A diamond starts out in the lowly form of graphite, such as you might find in the tip of your pencil. Over the course of hundreds of millions of years, the immense pressure and temperature produced deep inside the earth rearrange the carbon atoms into a crystal structure.
Then miners dig deep tunnels under the earth and collect the rough diamonds. The rough diamond looks nothing like the sparkly diamond you are holding. It has an irregular shape, is very dirty and looks dull. The diamond is then cleaned, cut into it's desired shape, and finally polished into the beautiful diamond you are now holding!
