The Round Cut Diamond
The most popular "shape" of diamond remains the round shape, for very sound reasons. Round shaped diamonds come in several varieties:
Modern Brilliant Cut
Often known as the brilliant, round, round brilliant, or brill. Has 58 facets, including the table and culet.
Eight Cut or Single Cut
Often used for very small diamonds, under 1 or 2 "points". These only have eight facets on the crown, eight on the pavilion, plus the table and culet, making 18 in total.
Old Cut or Early Modern Brilliant
An older, less precisely cut version of the modern brilliant cut.
Halfway between a brilliant and an eight cut, with 34 facets in total.
Most rose cut diamonds are round, but some may look triangular, or have straight edges. Rose cuts look like diamonds which have been cut upside-down, they rise to a point at the top, and are often flat at the base.
