2 Carat Briolette Diamond. The beauty of 360 degree sparkle. Special.
One of the key differences to other diamond cuts comes from the 360-degree faceting around each diamond. Most diamond cuts feature a distinctive ‘underside,’ sometimes referred to as the pavilion. In contrast, Briolette diamonds display facets all around the tear-drop shape. For this reason, they make an excellent diamond for drop pendants setting styles.
