The radiant cut is a patented name and a cut also known as cut cornered, rectangular, or square, modified brilliant on GIA grading reports. It has 70 facets, 25 on the crown, 8 on on the girdle, and 37 on the pavilion. The truncated corners help to minimize chipping. The radiant cut diamond is considered the father of branded fancy cut diamonds with a birth over 20 years ago. Originally protected by patent, the design is now public domain. It is the first cut to have complete brilliant fact pattern applied to both the crown and pavilion and as such presents a much more dazzling and brilliant diamond than the emerald cut. The same ratio of 1:1.5 will provide the most pleasing emerald shape but the square shape has become very popular recently.
Radiant Shape diamonds combine the sophisticated shape and elegance of Emerald Shape diamonds with brilliance of Round Shape diamonds.
With Radiant Shape diamonds, you will get the best of both worlds. If you love the look of the Emerald Shape diamond, but feel that it is just too lackluster, then you will fall in love with the Radiant Shape diamond. 70 facets offer brilliant light refraction, which is what makes the diamond sparkle in the light.
