A brilliant cut diamond is a rough diamond that was faceted into a gem with exceptional brilliance. What does this mean? It means that any diamond with the sparkle of a round 'brilliant' is a member of the brilliant cut diamonds; this includes cushion, heart, pear, marquise, radiant, and princess cut diamonds, too!
Brilliant cuts offer brilliance, fire, and scintillation, and it brings to life the shine that a diamond is known for. This type of cut is in fact more popular and more versatile, as it has many different shapes to offer.
It is often said that the diamond you choose says something about you... what do you think it says about you when you choose a brilliant cut?
