The round cut of a lab-grown diamond is considered the best by many due to its symmetry and ability to maximize light reflection and refraction. The round shape has 57 or 58 facets, which allows for the greatest number of reflective surfaces, resulting in a diamond that is extremely brilliant and sparkly.

When it comes to round gemstones, the most important thing is how they are cut. It's a good idea to pick a diamond with an excellent cut because lower grades might not sparkle as nicely due to uneven proportions. Diamonds with an excellent cut can seem larger and more beautiful because they shine brightly.
Some diamond cutters intentionally make the middle part of the diamond, called the girdle, thicker to make the lab diamond weigh more. However, this doesn't make the diamond look bigger. Checking the girdle's thickness is a smart move when choosing a diamond. Otherwise, you might pay extra for a heavier diamond that doesn't really look any different. Still, you shouldn't choose a lab-grown diamond with a "very thin" girdle either, as it can make the edges too delicate and prone to damage.
Lab-grown diamonds in the same color group (like colorless or near colorless) won't look very different, but the price difference can be significant. It's a good idea to go for a near colorless diamond, preferably not lower than grade I. Such a diamond won't have a noticeable yellowish tint and will be more affordable than a completely colorless one.
Additionally, the round shape is the most versatile and can be set in a variety of different jewelry styles, making it suitable for any occasion. The round shape is also the most popular lab-created diamond shape, and has been for several decades, which means that it holds its value well and is more likely to be resold in the future.
The origins of the round diamond shape can be traced back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as a result of advancements in cutting and polishing methods. Prior to this, diamonds were typically cut into more primitive shapes, such as the "old mine" or "old European" cuts. These early diamond cuts had a smaller table, higher crown, and a deeper pavilion than modern round diamonds, resulting in a less brilliant stone.
In 1919, Marcel Tolkowsky, a Belgian diamond cutter, published a treatise on the ideal proportions for a round diamond, which is known as the Tolkowsky Cut or the American Ideal Cut. Tolkowsky's calculations were based on mathematical principles of light reflection and refraction, and his ideal cut maximized the diamond's brilliance and fire. This cut became the standard for round lab-created diamonds too and is still used today as a benchmark for diamond cutting and grading.
The round diamond shape quickly gained popularity in the 1920s and 1930s, and has remained the most popular diamond shape to this day. The round shape became more popular because of its symmetry, which allowed for the maximum reflection of light, creating a sparkling and brilliant stone.
So, the round shape of diamond came from the process of cutting and polishing, the Tolkowsky Cut is considered as the standard for round lab-grown diamonds, and its popularity is due to its symmetry which maximize the reflection of light and creates a sparkling and brilliant diamond.
