The Benefits of Brilliant-Cut Diamond Engagement Rings

If you have been thinking about asking your partner for his or her hand in marriage, one of the first things you’ll probably want to do is choose an engagement ring. You want the ring to be perfect – a true symbol of your lifelong love and commitment to your partner. There are many options, but there are some distinct advantages to brilliant-cut diamond engagement rings. This brilliant round cut has been around since the early 1900s and is one of the most popular cuts. In fact, when many people picture an engagement ring, it’s the classic brilliant round solitaire that comes to mind. Here are some of the reasons you may want to consider brilliant-cut engagement rings when making your decision.

Popularity and Availability

Because the brilliant cut is so well-known, it’s easy to find a ring that suits your needs and preferences. There are a wide range of options, including settings of yellow, white, or rose gold as well as tungsten and platinum depending on what you like the most–or what you think your partner will love the most. Jewellers create a lot of brilliant-cut diamonds because they know how many people prefer them, so finding one you want without compromising on design will be easy.

Highest Brilliance and Fire

One of the reasons brilliant diamond engagement rings are so popular is because they give you the most sparkle for your buck. A round brilliant-cut ring is created with dozens of facets, causing light to bounce through the stone, giving it unmatched sparkle and fire. These flashy, eye-catching rings are perfect as engagement rings because of their brilliance and beauty. Their brilliance also means that they look great as solitaires.


Partly because they have no sharp corners for you to worry about, brilliant engagement rings work well with a huge variety of settings. A bezel setting or prong setting will look great with a brilliant-cut stone. Depending on the type of ring you want, you might even consider a tension setting, which is a unique, modern setting made of custom metal bands that hold the diamond in place with pressure, resulting in a clean, sleek look. Brilliant-cut diamonds look fantastic with any outfit and on every occasion.
