What are Radiant Cut Diamonds?
A radiant cut diamond can be square or rectangular. It is a matter of personal preference. Similar to a round cut in brilliance and the emerald cut in shape, the radiant cut is unique and versatile. Surrounded by smaller stones or alone, this shape can look vintage or modern.
A radiant diamond is cut with 70 facets, and the corners are trimmed off. The many facets can hide inclusions and color variations easily and the beveled edges make the stone more stable in the setting. Its appearance has been compared to cracked ice.
