The round brilliant diamond is the most popular diamond shape and, because of the laws of supply and demand is the most expensive. Rounds make up the vast majority of diamonds found in engagement rings and are popular as stud earrings and in pendants.
It is important that a skilled diamond cutter take into consideration the quality of the stone when cutting the diamond, as cutting a bigger stone sometimes yields in a less dazzling diamond. While Carat weight is a big factor in determining the diamond price, it is not the only factor to be considered.
Sometimes cutters will sacrifice quality in order to attain a higher carat weight. When this happens, clarity and color are not exceptional, and the diamond will not shine the you would wanted it to. A bigger diamond does not necessarily means a better and more valuable diamond.
