Radiant Cut Diamond Rings

Radiant cut diamond rings provide a unique style of ring which is a cross between the standard ring cut which is called brilliant cut and the asscher and emerald cut.  The radiant cut is a unique boxy shaped cut which is similar to the emerald cut, but unlike other similar shaped diamonds it has a fiery sparkle.  The shape of a radiant cut diamond ring can be either square or rectangle with buffed corners.  

The most important aspect of the radiant diamond is the length and width.  What you want to look for is a diamond ring that is squarer than rectangular.  In our opinion at Radiant Cut Diamond Rings the number advantage of getting this type of diamond is that it is much more forgiving if the ring has slight flaws.  The emerald cuts and asscher cuts will show more flaws because the sparkle is much less.  Because of the fiery sparkle and unique shape radiant cut diamonds are used for engagement rings.
