Radiant Cut Diamond
The Radiant cut – or technically known as a Cut Cornered Modified Brilliant cut is similar to the princess cut but is usually (though not always) a more rectangular outline and has cut corners like those of an emerald cut. The cutting is a combination of the step-cutting of the Emerald-cut diamond with some triangular faceting of the brilliant cut. The Radiant cut is dramatic as a solitaire but also looks great paired with side stones such as baguettes, trillions, or princess shapes. A Radiant cut stone should be set with special prongs to hold the cut corners securely.
