Radiant Cut Diamonds
Radiant cut diamonds have cropped corners, may be square or rectangular with brilliant faceting generating a unique sparkle. The Radiant Cut can best be described as a shape and cut created by combining an Emerald cut with a Princess cut.
Radiant cut diamonds are described by the Gemological Institute of America [GIA] as ‘Cut Cornered Modified Brilliants’.
Radiant cuts are similar to Princess cuts however have 45 degree corners with a slightly different faceting pattern and personality.
Set in jewelry Radiant and Cushion cuts are often similar and the technical differences noted only under close examination. Radiant cuts may vary in shape from rectangular to square and cut beautifully both are valid choices based on individual preference.
There is no ‘ideal’ depth and table parameters for fancy cut diamonds [other than rounds] since these percentages will vary based upon the unique length, width and depth measurements of each stone.
