All About The Radiant Cut
All About the Radiant Cut
The radiant cut diamond is a remarkably symmetrical, non-traditional cut featuring a jaw-dropping 70 facets, making it one of the most faceted diamond shapes ever created. Its unique design reduces its weight but increases both the shine and brilliance of the stone. Combining the beauty of a round cut and the purity of an emerald cut, the radiant cut diamond is a culmination of the most beloved traits from iconic diamond shapes. With its square silhouette and delicately trimmed corners, the radiant cut diamond is an excellent choice for the centerpiece of any head-turning engagement ring.
History of the Radiant Cut Diamond
A relative newcomer to the world of diamond cuts, the radiant diamond is less than 40 years old. In 1977, after working as a master diamond cutter for thirty years, Henry Grossbard set out to create a diamond that would reach new heights of brilliance. Featuring the long elegant shape of an emerald combined with the many fiery facets of the round cut, the radiant diamond changed the way rectangular diamonds were viewed and developed. Before creating the radiant cut, every other rectangular-shaped diamond had fewer facets, fine details, and shone less brightly than Grossbard's version.
Why Choose a Radiant Cut Ring?
If you are looking for the elegance of the emerald cut but don't want to sacrifice any of the sparkle offered by the round cut, a radiant cut diamond may be the perfect way to go. On average, a radiant diamond is 30% less expensive than a round diamond of the same size and quality and is just as dazzling. Despite being a newer design, the radiant cut ring is among the most popular styles because of its versatility and luminescence. Although not a very common shape, people like Khloe Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Hillary Duff have chosen it for their engagement rings.
