Round Loose Diamond History

The round loose diamond cut is actually conical, with a curved top (called a crown) that sits on a pointed base. Ambassador Julian Cardinal Mazarin introduced the round diamond in the 17th century with only 17 facets. Then in the 18th century a Venetian cutter named Vincent Peruzzi introduced a round diamond with 33 facets. The round loose diamond you see today is credited to a Russian mathematician, Marcel Tolkowsky. Using very precise geometric calculations he created the "modern round brilliant diamond cut" and its 58-facet design. Today, computer applications can help identify the best cut for a particular diamond shape (some have as many as 96 facets).
