What are Round Cut Diamonds?
Round cut diamonds have a standard pattern of 58 facets (57 if the culet isn’t included), which is made up of the following:
- The eight main faces on the crown
- The eight main faces on the pavilion
- The eight pairs of half facets between the mains on the crown
- The eight pairs of half facets between the mains on the pavilion
- The crown has eight small ‘star facets’
- The large facet on top called the table
- The pavilion may also have a small facet on the culet
Each of these facets, which include the main and ancillary facets, need to work together in harmony to create the magnificent sparkle that shines even from across the room.
The History of the Round Cut Diamond
The technological advances seen in today’s world have improved the cutting process for diamonds, allowing us to enjoy what diamonds that we now have.
However, diamonds weren’t always like this, so let’s take a trip back in time to see how the round-cut diamond has evolved.
The First Round Cut Diamonds
Some of the earliest round cut diamonds were created using primitive tools; as a result, it was only possible to put a few essential facets on them.
At the time, the most common diamond crystal had an octahedral shape, and the easiest way to shape them was to grind away the points until there was a big table on one end and a small culet on the other.
A Breakthrough in Laboratory Grading
Before being able to assess the cut quality of diamonds inside laboratories, there weren’t many ways for consumers to identify the importance of the 4C’s.
There were no major laboratories up until 1996 that could provide an accurate cut grade for their diamond reports. While the diamond’s proportions, dimensions, symmetry, and polish were reported, there was no overall cut grade included.
To address this issue, the American Gem Society set up the first laboratory to add the cut grading along with the other three C’s — clarity, carat, and color.
However, this didn’t happen right away and took another decade before they could add a cut grade to reports. In 2006, The GIA launched their new cut grade system which indicated a top grade of Excellent.
The Round Brilliant Cut Today
The round brilliant cut is a contemporary design that contains 58 facets (57 when the culet is excluded), where the top of the diamond is termed down, while the bottom of the diamond is termed pavilion.
Its biggest facet is referred to as the table and is located at the top of the diamond, while the smallest facet is located at the base and is referred to as the culet. Having this symmetrically balanced shape allows for maximum light to reflect for the observer to see.
