Among all the different shapes being sold in the market today, the classic round shape is still preferred by many, with 75 percent of all diamond engagement rings sold being that shape. Most attribute the preference for that shape because round diamond is generally much superior than the other shapes at the proper reflection of light and that, in effect gives much more brightness and shine. It is said that all round diamonds are brilliant cut. That means, the round diamond has 58 facets.
If you are very sure that you want this shape for the engagement ring you are going to give to your bride to be, then the remaining concern for you at this point is the complete look of the engagement ring. Should it be a plain, one-stone engagement ring? Should it be with a halo or a double halo? Should it be a three-stone one? Or should it have pave or channel settings? Take a look at some of the different styles of rings below with the round brilliant diamond as the center stone.
