What Is a Radiant-Cut Diamond?

A radiant cut diamond features a square or rectangular shape with beveled corners and 70 facets that create a mesmerizing sparkle. Radiant cut diamonds are pretty hypnotizing with their similarities to an emerald cut diamond. Both emerald and radiant cut diamonds have similar shapes and corners. Radiant cut diamonds feature the best of both worlds with their similar shape to emerald cut diamonds with the combination of the stunning facets of a round diamond. This makes a radiant cut diamond reflect light beautifully with the extra sparkle.

These nontraditional are perfect for the bride-to-be who doesn’t mind standing out. Radiant diamonds are popular because they provide the striking appearance of angled diamond shapes and a shine similar to that of round brilliant cut diamonds.

Is a Radiant-Cut Diamond Cheaper Than Other Cuts? 
Yes, a radiant-cut diamond will be more affordable than other diamond shapes. Why? It mainly depends on the rough diamond content in the cut diamond. For example, round brilliant diamonds waste the most roughage. Because of this, they generally are priced higher. On the flip side, radiant-cut diamonds tend to waste little roughage compared to a round diamond with the same carat weight. Due to its radiant cuts, radiant cut diamonds are more affordable.
Radiant cut diamond vs. Princess cut diamond
Radiant cut diamonds are not so different from princess cut diamonds. Both diamond shapes are versatile and perfect for engagement ring settings. Princess cut diamonds are square shaped with sharp corners. On the other hand, radiant cut diamonds are elongated rectangular stones with brilliant facets, making them more durable than a princess cut diamond. Furthermore, a rectangular radiant diamond is more expensive compared to a princess cut.
Radiant Cut Diamond vs. Emerald cut diamond

Although emerald cut diamonds are similar to radiant cut diamonds it's important to be aware that they are different. Emerald cut diamonds, and radiant cut diamonds have similar shapes however, they do not have the same brilliance. Emerald cuts are cut with parallel facets giving the illusion of a see-through diamond. On the other hand, a radiant diamond has a brilliant cut allowing it to reflect light beautifully.

Radiant cut diamonds shine effortlessly, similar to a round diamond. This gives this diamond cut that extra touch of elegance, making it perfect for those who love that extra sparkle.

Radiant-Cut Diamonds - The 4 C’s

Cut —The shape of a diamond refers to its physical appearance, while the cut refers to how well the diamond’s features interact with light. Because radiant-cut diamonds are a “fancy” cut, they do not go through a grading process. However, radiant-cut diamonds should provide ample brilliance and sparkle due to their astonishing 70 facets.

Clarity — Clarity, or the amount of inclusions and blemishes in a stone, is often a problem for fancy shapes, but not so with the radiant diamond. Each diamond will have a different amount of these flaws, ranging from SI2 (having the greatest amount) to VVS1 (having the least). However, radiants tend to hide—not emphasize—these inclusions, giving you a much wider choice of diamonds that will work within your budget.

Color — In the diamond trade, color refers to the absence of color. Clean Origin only offers diamonds from J to D, though there are diamonds with colors from Z (containing the most color) to D (containing the least color). Radiant-shaped diamonds disguise color tints in addition to flaws. Feel free to get a more colorful stone, knowing that it will not have a noticeably negative impact on the overall look of the stone.

Carat — Radiant-shaped diamonds look much larger than their carat size. Add a halo of smaller diamonds to surround the center stone to make them look even more prominent. Keep in mind that lab grown diamonds are priced 20-30% less than mined diamonds of similar quality and carat weight, letting you add carat size or enhancements without exceeding your budget.

Buyers' Tips for Radiant-Cut Diamonds

Once you determine that the radiant shape will be a perfect match for your loved one, you’ll need to decide whether to purchase a square or a rectangular stone. Rectangular stones have a length-to-width ratio of 1.20-1.30, while square stones have a balance of 1.00-1.03. Both will sparkle like there’s no tomorrow on your loved one’s hand, but a more rectangular stone will add length to their fingers, while a square stone will evoke a bolder aesthetic.

If you’re unsure what your sweetheart’s style is, choosing a more rectangular stone might be a good idea. If you know they like to stand out, a square is the one to choose.

How to choose a radiant cut diamond

Start by thinking of the style or diamond cut you prefer, this will allow you to come up with a budget for and an idea of what you like. Radiant cut diamonds are versatile and come in various styles, making them an excellent option for engagement ring settings.

This price difference allows you to purchase a quality ring below your budget or even enhance their ring with a unique halo or pavè band that might have been just out of reach.
