History of the Radiant Cut Diamond
Diamonds became popular as ornaments in jewelry in the 1400's and the different techniques and styles of diamond cuts such as the Radiant Cut Diamond were gradually developed over many years. This particular cut was created in 1977 by Henry Grossbard of the Radiant Cut Diamond Company (RCDC). The 'Original Radiant Cut' had 61 facets (not including 8 girdle facets) maximizing the effect of its color refraction. It was the first emerald shaped diamond cut to have brilliance, sparkle and fire similar to that of a round brilliant diamond.

Description of the Radiant Cut Diamond
The description of an Radiant Cut Diamond is: A square or rectangular shape with clipped or rounded corners combining the the elegance of the emerald shape and the brilliance and sparkle of the round shape. Aspect ratio of a Radiant cut: The ratio of the length to the width should be about 1.3 -1.5:1.

Radiant Cut Diamond - the Cutting Process
Diamond Facets are the smooth surface areas of a diamond which are cut and polished to control the brilliance and the durability of a diamond. A skilful diamond cutter brings out all the brilliance and sparkle of a diamond by choosing the most appropriate cut, such as the Ascher Diamond cut.

Radiant Cut Diamond Engagement Rings
The tradition of wearing engagement rings, including those with an Radiant cut diamond, symbolizes the promise of a future together which is sealed with the giving and accepting of a ring. The tradition of giving a diamond engagement ring dates back to the 13th century. Mary of Burgundy is the first known recipient of a diamond engagement ring, in 1477. Betrothal Betrothal rings were initially given as a pledge to marry. All wedding and engagement rings are worn on the third finger of the left hand because the vein in this finger, called the "vena amoris", was once believed to run directly to the heart which is closely associated with love. The circular shape of rings symbolizes unending love.

Radiant Cut Diamond Solitaire
The most popular style engagement ring is a diamond solitaire, the cuts include the Radiant cut diamond solitaire. The solitaire design was introduced by Tiffany about 100 years ago. The Tiffany solitaire setting enhanced the brilliance and lustre of the diamond by introducing the first ‘open’ mount, which allowed light to travel freely through the precious stone differing from all previous settings which had restrictive closed backs. The Radiant cut diamond solitaire is a beautiful cut for this type of jewelry.

Radiant Cut Diamond
What constitutes good cuts? Good Radiant Cut Diamonds are effected by several different elements which have a large impact on a diamond's brilliance. These include the Width and Depth of the stone, the Symmetry and the alignment of a diamond's facets and the polish. Diamond Clarity is a measure of a diamond's blemishes and inclusions which also effect the brilliance of diamonds and their sparkle because they interfere with the passage of light travelling through the precious stone. The skill of the jeweller will ensure that Radiant cut diamonds have a suitable cut to give the most beautiful results in respect of their lustre, transparency, refraction and dispersion of light.
