A Radiant Cut is an irresistible combination, as it has the fire of a Round Brilliant Cut and the elegance of an Emerald Cut. The Radiant Cut is relatively new and can be square or rectangular in shape with the corners cropped.
The Radiant Cut does allow for less than exceptional Clarity and in addition to giving plenty of sparkle, the brilliant cut faceted arrangement disguises inclusions, which are more apparent in Emerald and Asscher cut diamonds.
The fire of the Radiant Cut makes them especially attractive as Solitaire engagement rings and also a great companion for straight edged side stones such as Baguette Cut diamonds.
When choosing a Radiant Cut diamond engagement ring the diamond is commonly set north-south, this arrangement compliments shorter, larger fingers providing an elongate effect. For a more unusual style of setting the east-west arrangement is favourable and compliments a wider finger.
