If you are looking for that unusual piece of bling that fuses the brilliance of round-cut with the squarish suave of the princess cut, your search will end with the radiant cut diamond. Flaunting an all-encompassing brilliant-cut facet design across its pavilion as well as the crown, the radiant is a stunningly effervescent square diamond.
The radiant cut emerged into mass popularity during the 1980s owing to its unique square silhouette with cropped corners. This shape beautifully bridges the world of princess cut and cushion-cut diamonds. Hence, this remarkable profile of radiant diamonds can be complemented by both square-cornered and round-edged diamonds.

The many shapes of radiant diamonds
Though the shape of a radiant diamond is reminiscent of more square outlines, buyer preferences vary considerably when it comes to the precise shape of a certain stone. The form of radiant diamonds can vary from entirely square with a meticulous length-to-width ratio of 1.00 and 1.05, to a more traditional rectangular contour ranging anywhere between 1.20 and 1.50. A radiant diamond with a visible affinity for a rectangle mimics the appearance of the emerald shape but with the tell-tale brilliance of the round cut.
The bow-tie effect
Keep an eye out for the dreaded bow-tie effect in your radiant diamond. This phenomenon is mostly observed in varying degrees of severe to almost invisible effects in longer and deeply rectangular radiant diamonds. This can be only determined by inspecting the diamond visually and not from any diamond certificate.
When buying a radiant cut diamond, personal style preferences rule the decision-making process. From the visible shape and presence of color to quality of clarity – finesse in these crucial aspects contribute to the value and final price of the diamond. However, the radiant diamond, thanks to its sheer brilliance, is much tolerant of flaws and inclusions when compared to other square shapes of emerald or even Asscher.
