A shape that has features from both the Emerald Cut and the Round Brilliant Cut, making it mostly rectangular but not far from square, with cut corners, and lots of Fire and Brilliance.

Most square or rectangular cuts just don’t live up to the round brilliant for sparkle, but the Radiant Cut was designed for getting maximum brilliance. Like the emerald cut, the radiant cut diamond is often a rectangle (sometimes square) with cropped corners, but that’s where the similarities end. Where the emerald cut has long trim lines, the radiant cut is faceted for fire.
