Patented in the late 1970s, the radiant cut is either a brilliant or mixed cut using both brilliant and step facets in a square or rectangular shape with beveled corners. The radiant’s angular shape and brilliant facets make it a scintillating alternative to the Emerald cut.

Brilliant cut diamonds have triangular and kite shaped facets that radiate from a diamond’s center outwards. This brillianteering intensifies a diamond’s fire, scintillation, and brilliance giving the stone “life.”
