Radiant Cut Diamonds 101

In the 1970s, jeweler Henry Grossbard was on a mission to combine the beauty of an emerald cut with a round brilliant. After working for 30-years as a diamond cutter, Grossbard had the idea to feature the elongated elegance of an emerald cut with all the sparkle factor of a round brilliant cut diamond. It was through his years of experience and work that the radiant cut was born. The radiant diamond is known for its rectangular, emerald-like shape, but they can also come in a more square-like shape resembling a cushion cut.

Moissanite vs Diamonds

How does Moissanite differ from diamonds?

Shakespeare asked: “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet…?” Would a diamond by another name sparkle just as bright? What about a stone that wishes it would be a diamond? Moissanite turned up in the culture conversation on Pinterest as a “life hack;” it is a stone that looks like a diamond but is a fraction of the cost.
