The radiant cut is one of the most beautiful cuts with 70 facets endowing it with a dazzling fire and sparkle. It became known for its elegance and simplicity in the short time period after it was invented. It is one of the most preferred diamond cuts used to design engagement and wedding rings. Its shine, unconventional design, and suaveness will make any bride look like a queen.
History Of Radiant Cut
The renowned master diamond cutter, Henry Grossboard, felt the need to develop a design that would bring the long structure of the emerald cut together with the many sharp facets of a round brilliant cut. His ideas and effort, after years of perseverance, gave birth to the radiant cut in 1977.
Although radiant cut makes the diamond look long and rectangular like the emerald cut, it can also have a square like shape similar to cushion cut diamonds. No matter how much they resemble, the sparkle of radiant cut due to its facets will unmistakably stand out differentiating it from cushion cut diamonds.
