Round cut diamonds account for approximately 75% of all engagement rings sold today. The round brilliant cut stone simply gives off the most sparkle, due to its numerous facets. However, you can also expect to pay more for round cut diamonds, because they require much more of the raw diamond to be cut when being shaped.
The skill of the cutter truly comes into play when you purchase any certified loose diamonds, whether you are interested in pear shaped diamonds or emerald cut diamonds. It is important that the cutter take into consideration the quality of the stone when cutting the diamond, as cutting a bigger stone sometimes yields in a less dazzling diamond. While carat weight is a big factor in determining the price, it is not the only factor to be considered.
