Radiant Cut Diamond
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.
