What is a Radiant Cut Diamond?

A radiant cut diamond has a mixed cut, which means that it combines the elements of different cuts of diamonds. A brilliant cut in particular is a mix of step cut and round cut. While step cut mostly comprises of the emerald and accsher shape with longer facets, round cut obviously has rounder and smaller facets.

This type of cut is more inclined towards the round cut, with round and comparatively shorter facets. This gives the cut the same sort of brilliance and shine that makes a round cut so popular.

Ideally, a radiant cut should feature anything around 70 small facets. This, when viewed from the top, appears highly radiant. Also, when looked from the top, you will find a diagonal cross pattern, which distinguishes it from all the other patterns similar to it. Most of the brilliant cut diamonds found on rings and other jewelry are slightly rectangular, with length width ratio of as high as 1.2. But, you can also find square radiant cut with all equal sides or in the shape of a square.

To be more specific, when looking for a striking square diamond, look for a length to width ratio between 1 and 1.05. And, in case, it is rectangular as stated above, anything beyond 1.2 would be good enough.

What also makes the brilliant cut preferable over other mixed cut diamonds is how effectively they combine the angular elegance brilliance of the step cut, with a sparkling appearance of the round cut. If we look at radiant cut vs princess cut the difference become apparent in the form corners in the two cuts. While the former has cropped corners, the latter is more akin to step cuts like emeralds.

Radiant Cut Diamonds- Uniquely Beautiful

Among all the different types of mixed cut diamonds, the radiant cut diamonds are the most uniquely beautiful. When viewed from the front, one can distinctly see a diagonal cross pattern in between the fiery areas of the diamond. This makes the radiant truly eye catching and ideal for being used as a centerpiece in most jewelry items.

These are popularly placed as the center stones in jewelry including, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Nonetheless, a radiant cut looks the best in radiant cut diamond engagement rings. The use of a radiant cut diamond with a halo achieves a dramatic and spectacular effect. And even when it manages to stand out quiet beautifully on its own, many people like accenting it with small elongated stones on either side.
