Trillion cut diamonds were first developed in Amsterdam, and often traditionally used as side stones to a larger solitaire on engagement rings. However, for the more adventurous spirit, the trillion cut diamond makes a perfect center stone as it can hold it's own with no problem. The trillion shape is a brilliant cut, which means that it catches the light well which is what gives it that sparkle and fire.
The exact design of trillion cut diamonds truly depends on two things: the skill and preference of the cutter and the natural characteristics of the stone. The diamond can be a triangle with pointed corners, or more rounded, with 25 facets on the crown, and 19 facets on the pavilion. The crown is the upper part of the diamond above the girdle. The girdle is the narrow rim around the diamond.
Trillion Cut Diamonds for the Adventurous
While trillion cut diamonds are certainly not as popular as round cut diamonds or even princess cut diamonds, they are most definitely gaining in popularity. They used to be reserved as an accessory to the larger center stone in many rings, but have begun to come into their own and take center stage. The trillion cut is not for the person looking for that classic ring, but rather for that person that likes to take chances and go on adventures.
