History of The Brilliant Cut

The round shape had been around for centuries and you may have heard of, or come across the likes of the Old European Cut or the Rose Cut diamond before. These have a rounded shape but are faceted quite differently. It wasn’t until 1919 when Marcel Tolkowsky developed the basis for the modern round brilliant cut diamond we see today. Tolkowsky did this by developing a mathematical formula for cutting diamonds, defining specific angles and proportions that gave the best reflection and refraction of light. This is what we know as brilliance and sparkle!

The Modern Brilliant Cut

Since Tolkowsky’s mind blowing creation and the advancements in modern cutting techniques, the round brilliant cut has been modified to become what diamond experts believe to be the Ideal Cut. With 57-58 facets, it gives the proper reflection of light and maximises the diamonds fire and sparkle. The round brilliant cut sets the standard for all other diamond shapes because of it’s perfect proportions and when you see one you can see why it’s such a popular choice for engagement rings.
