Emerald Radiant Cut Rings
If you’re looking for an alternative to the popular Princess cut, a Radiant cut diamond for your engagement ring makes a lovely and classic choice. This cut is perfect for those who seek a breathtaking combination of an Emerald cut whilst craving the classic sparkle of a Round Brilliant cut diamond.
A relatively new diamond shape, the Radiant cut was designed by Henry Grossbard in the late 1970s. He created a cutting technique that combined the best elements of Emerald and round diamond shapes–allowing Radiant diamonds to exhibit incredible brilliance and fire. The Radiant is also the first cut to have a brilliant-facet pattern applied to both the crown & pavilion which makes it exhibit fierce shine with much more brilliance and sparkle.
Its quadrilateral form and 70 brilliant facets also make it similar to the Princess design, but its rectangular shape and blocked corners again emulate the Emerald figure. It is stunningly dramatic as a solitaire, but also compliments arrangements with side stones such as Baguettes, Trillions, or Princess shapes.
