Round cut diamond engagement rings in Australia
When someone talks about proposing, the first thing that comes to mind is a round engagement ring with a gigantic diamond. Why is it so popular? Grooms choose a round cut because of its symmetrical shape of 58 facets, mesmerizing with subtlety and glimmer. But let's learn more.
- Harmony with clothes. Round engagement rings go amazingly with both casual and formal wear.
- Market availability. The king of all diamonds is sold at every jewellery shop and website. If you stick to this classic, you won't be left hanging. Plus, you can shop online and buy some time for planning.
- Perfect cloak of invisibility. Round engagement rings can hide minor imperfections of the diamond. This means you can afford to buy lower quality diamonds within budget, and they'll still look flawless, bright and full of fire.
- Best sparkle. Due to the cut of the diamond, light bounces around and creates a blinding glow.
- Prices for round diamond engagement rings can be exorbitant. If you are on a shoestring budget, purchase an oval or cushion diamond instead and get a bigger size and higher clarity for a lesser cost.
- Round cut is not for everybody. Some find it old-fashioned. But it doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing. Despite having a basic shape, round diamond didn't lose its glamour or charm over time.
- It might be challenging to find large carat and quality. To craft beautiful facets, a jeweller removes much of a stone. Therefore, finding a large carat is a rarity.
Start with material
While picking out a round engagement ring, most couples don't study their options and resort straightforwardly to yellow gold. Although yellow gold rings are durable and stunning, rings from other metals do not concede to them by any aspect. Furthermore, alternative metals are gaining traction. We've assembled a shortlist of most purchased of them:
White gold is the favourite metal of those who prefer silver and don't fancy a yellowish hue. Over the last decade, it picked up steam for its contemporary feel and reasonable price. However, white gold is rhodium coated and needs to be replated once in a while. Plus, it may cause allergies.
White gold round engagement rings signify prudence and calmness and are the best choice for smooth-tempered, assertive partners.
Rose gold ring – a ring made in the colour of love. It is a neutral choice that isn't excessive or elaborate. On the contrary, this metal is associated with modesty and expressivity. It combines two opposites by leaving you neither in the flow nor outside of it.
Rose gold has relatively high corrosion resistance, but it may tarnish a bit in the forthcoming years. Unlike white or yellow gold, it doesn't contain nickel and won't induce an allergic reaction. In addition, these round engagement rings tone well with any skin complexion and ensure clothes flexibility.
We believe it to be a befitting purchase for artistic, sensitive, mysterious, and open-minded people.
If you favour the old ways, consider yellow gold round engagement rings. They bring luck, prosperity and represent faithfulness. Yellow gold bands are often passed over to next generations, so they are not easy to scratch. Before buying them, make sure your partner isn't metal-allergic.
Platinum is the most expensive variant on the market. However, its undeniable advantages compensate for the skyrocketing price. It is the only hypoallergenic and corrosion-resistant metal that doesn't wear down or tarnish.
It symbolizes timeless love, integrity and loyalty. Platinum round engagement rings are a number one purchase for born leaders and strong-willed people.
Choose best design
When it comes to choosing a setting, your options are numerous. Our mission is to help you find the best one. The setting reflects a person's style and character; it can tell us whether an owner is meticulous or sloppy, conservative or radical, chatty or reserved. Selecting a design is your chance to show your partner how well you know him. If you wish to dive into the topic more, visit our online page: https://www.gsdiamonds.com.au/how-to-choose-your-style .
Luckily, round cut diamonds go with a variety of settings. Here are some modish variants to opt for:
The tradition of proposing with a solitaire round diamond engagement ring goes way back. Most couples still favour this classy option because of its minimalistic design and symbolism. One ideal diamond for one elegant metal band – this composition speaks louder than words.
Solitaire might be a dream come true for your beloved. Who said your spouse hasn't wished for prince charming to appear before her door with a sparkly diamond in his hand.
Since solitaire setting is in high demand on the market, you might have to splurge on it. Its design highlights the central stone, so we don't recommend making significant sacrifices in the diamond's weight.
Halo is a ring of tiny accent stones (gemstones or diamonds) that hug a larger centre stone. The accent stones add extra glitter and allow for the personalized approach and versatility. They can come in a variety of colours and form different shapes. Thus, you can tell your love story through a unique, well-designed palette.
Halo rings with round diamonds have gained extreme popularity and are the second choice of newlyweds because of the magnifying effect and perfect symmetry. Many adjacent stones increase the diamond's bulk, making a carat look bigger than it actually is. To maximize your setting to the most extent, choose diamonds of the same quality as the centre stone.
Halos are often considered budget-friendly since you can save up on the 4 C’s. However, they require thorough care for the smaller stones not to fall out.
Engagement marks the beginning of a shared journey. A journey that consists of helping and supporting each other through stormy seas. Side stones round engagement rings serve as the embodiment of this principle. One centre stone is complemented by a pave of shiny smaller stones, and together they forge intricate and magnificent designs. Side stones setting accentuates the main diamond and is more delicate than a halo setting. It is a top-notch choice if you want brilliance and simplicity combined. However, you may have to replace little stones now and then.
Everyone heard of the famous "A Christmas Carol" in which the main hero faces the ghosts of his past, present and future. The three stones symbolic design was probably inspired by Dickens's story, as it also depicts different stages of a couple's life.
Three stones round engagement ring looks exactly like it sounds: the main stone is flattered by two side stones on a band. It is a fine compromise between halo and solitaire: not too bulky and not too small. In addition, you can choose whichever side stones you desire: Rubin-to display passion and intimacy of your relationship, Emerald - to mark a new chapter, Sapphire - to signify harmony and peace; or any other stone to bring out your partner's eyes. Three stones round engagement rings can be more expensive than solitaires, but they are more original too.
Vintage round engagement rings mirror the magic of antiquity. Although alternative cuts are more appealing to this type of setting, round cut has something to offer as well.
You will be dazzled by elegance of ring designs. They weave in sophisticated meaningful ornaments, adding a certain customized allure. This setting magnificently draws attention to the main stone. It is a neat pick for those who are tired of run-of-the-mill shapes.
Vintage round diamond engagement rings have outlived any temporary trends and, therefore, symbolize an unbreakable bond.

Frequently Asked Questions
A round engagement ring is a classy option that never goes out of fashion. It usually flaunts a solitaire setting with a sole glimmering diamond. Fifty-eight facets of fire and brilliance, no other cut can live up to! The round brilliant symbolises endless faithfulness and pure devotion.
The high demand on the market makes the prices increase exponentially. Therefore, rounds are the most expensive diamonds. However, along with a hefty tag, you get multi-faceted quality, unrivalled shine and scarce perfection. A beautiful round is challenging to cut. If you want a true rarity – this is your best bet.
Rounds are the priciest stones in the jewellery industry, and the main reason for that is their exclusiveness. Most of the raw diamond is removed during the cutting process. Thus, bigger rocks are almost impossible to come by. Plus, every round has 58 facets that have to be carved ideally by a professional.
