Why Round Cut Diamonds?

Round cut diamonds are brilliant by all meanings: in the British sense, they’re awesome; in the American sense, they’re a smart choice; and in the diamond cutting sense, they’re cut in the brilliant style. Brilliant round cut diamonds contain kite-shaped facets that reflect light off of each other.

Look at how the light is refracted into color (referred to as the diamond’s fire). There should be flashes of red, blue, yellow, or orange inside the round cut diamond as it tilts.
