The Beauty of Round Brilliant Cut Diamonds: Platinum, Rose Gold, White Gold & Yellow Gold Settings

Posted on September 15th, 2016

In the modern era, round cut diamonds are often seen encrusting the bands and settings of exquisitely designed engagement rings. The center stone is often emerald cut, oval, or otherwise shaped to stand out from the rest with distinction. The classic round cut diamond engagement ring is different: its center stone often stands alone, carrying the day with the unique luster and sparkle that only a dazzlingly cut and perfectly set round diamond will be able to provide. Where the band is encrusted, the smaller round cut diamonds bring out the center stone’s beauty all the more, by providing additional refraction under any illumination.
