A Square Cut with the Radiance of the Round Cut
Diamond Education: The Radiant Cut Diamond
The radiant cut has trimmed edges.
This cut, created in 1977 by Henry Grossbard, was designed to maintain the beauty of each different type of diamond, while still creating something altogether different from anything available at the time.
Polish and symmetry are two important aspects of the cut.
The polish grade describes the smoothness of the diamond’s facets, and the symmetry grade refers to alignment of the facets.
With poor polish, the surface of a facet can be dulled, and may create blurred or dulled sparkle. It may constantly look like it needs to be cleaned.
With poor symmetry, light can be misdirected as it enters and exits the diamond.
