The radiant cut is a stunning hybrid of other diamond shapes - it resembles the rectangular silhouette and cropped corners of an emerald cut diamond, but with more sparkle.
Radiant cut diamonds have a modified brilliant cut, making their sparkle similar to princess cut diamonds. Radiant cut diamonds currently make up 3.3% of Ritani's diamond sales.
It's a sophisticated choice for those who want a more extraordinary diamond shape, but still with that classic sparkle. The elongated silhouette of radiant cut diamonds will make your diamond appear larger and will make your finger appear longer and more slender.
Stars who have worn radiant cut engagement rings include Jennifer Lopez and Drew Barrymore. Radiant cut diamonds are also a beautiful choice for custom jewelry, such as pendants and earrings.
Radiant cut diamonds are typically rectangular in shape, but they can also be square. For a square radiant cut diamond, choose a stone with a length to width ratio of 1.05 or less. For a rectangular radiant cut diamond, choose a stone with a length to width ratio of 1.20-1.35. Choose a length to width ratio that is appealing to you - there is no correct one.
If you want to add additional sparkle, choose a halo setting. This can also make your diamond appear larger. Or let your radiant cut diamond stand out on its own with a solitaire setting.
