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.
