History and Origin of the Radiant Diamond Cut
The Radiant diamond cut was first brought into the world in 1977 and has become a popular choice. The cut was designed by Henry Grossbard, a master diamond cutter. The intention of this design was to combine the best features of the emerald cut and the round brilliant cut which displays an elegant elongated shape and voluminous facets. The most common radiant cuts are rectangular shaped but some are known to be square shaped. The long rectangular shape allows for more facets, making it a truly remarkable cut.
