Radiant Cut Diamonds

Radiant cut diamonds are classified as mixed cuts, because they combine the rectangular shape of a step cut with the faceting pattern of a brilliant cut. This means that a radiant cut will have the sparkle of a round or princess cut diamond, but the vintage appeal of an Asscher or cushion cut diamond.

A radiant cut diamond will traditionally have 70 facets, with 25 on the crown, 8 on the girdle, and 37 on the pavilion. Although radiant cut diamonds have many facets, their facets are a bit larger, which is typical of a step cut shape. So, it is important to maximize your radiant cut diamond’s color and clarity grades. A radiant cut runs the risk of showing lower clarity and color grades more obviously than other diamond cuts.
