How Many Facets In a Radiant-Cut Diamond?

Radiant-cut diamonds can have up to 70 facets. However, they typically have 62. The number of facets on a radiant-cut diamond will affect the diamond’s overall sparkle and brilliance. A higher number of facets will usually result in a more dazzling display of light, while a lower number of facets can give the diamond a more subdued appearance.

What's The Difference Between a Radiant-Cut and a Cushion-Cut Diamond?

Radiant-cut diamonds are a relatively new diamond cut, having only been introduced in the 1970s. A radiant-cut diamond is square in shape with corners cut at a 45-degree angle, which creates a more geometric design. Cushion cuts are also square but have rounded corners that give the diamond a softer, more romantic shape. Charles Rose offers both radiant and cushion cuts in a variety of settings, handcrafted by masters in the jewellery trade.

What is a Radiant Cut Diamond?

A radiant cut diamond combines the lively brilliance of a round cut with the clean lines of an emerald cut, resulting in a stone that exudes both modern elegance and classic charm. This cut is distinguished by its deep facets and trimmed corners, enhancing both the diamond's radiance and visual appeal.
