Radiant Cut Rings
Characteristics of Radiant Cut RingsFew cuts of diamonds are as truly unique and beautiful as the rectangular silhouette of the radiant cut. A hybrid of several older styles, the radiant is a multi-faceted design that reduces weight but increases both shine and brilliance. When cut properly, the radiant gem lives up to its name, reflecting light in all directions in a glorious display that is truly a sight to behold. The influence of both the emerald cut, as well as the round brilliant, are still visible in these pieces, and fans of either will surely find something to enjoy in a radiant cut ring.Â
