Diamond Stone Shapes

Radiant Cut

Radiant Stone Shape

Radiant cut diamonds are distinctive by their cropped corners and have 70 facets. They are usually rectangular in shape but can also be square. Created in the 1970s by World War II veteran Henry Gossbard, radiant cut diamonds combine the elegance of an emerald cut diamond with the brilliance of a round diamond. They are particularly popular for coloured diamonds, where this cut can intensify the colour of the stone.
