Radiant Solitaire Diamond Engagement Rings Guide: Quality, Clarity, Color and Cost
A ray-cut diamond offers excellent brightness and durability. For the color, we recommend an H or higher like this breathtaking H-radiation cut in 14 or white gold. For the sake of clarity, we recommend an SI1 or an SI2. When it comes to cut quality, we recommend consulting an expert to make sure you are getting exceptional diamonds at a great price.
What is a radiation cut diamond?
The radioactive diamond, popular since the 1960s, bears his name: it is impressively bright and shiny. Henry Grossbird 19 1977 designed the illuminated section with the aim of combining the best elements of round glazed glass and emerald cut.
The brilliance of the bright cut diamond has mandapa and crowns near ow0 sides. The accuracy in every direction provides a lot of energy and fire. The brightness of the light cut is only exceeded by the round light cut.
It is a great choice for an engagement ring that will decrease brightness that swells with brightness and fire.
With careful bevel angles, the radiators have adequate chip and breakage durability, making them a great choice for those with an active lifestyle. With this function, radians can be combined with square and round diamonds such as this 1.0 carat spotlight in a channel setting made of 14 carat white gold.
Ray-cut diamonds: pros and cons
Illuminated diamonds, like any other diamond size, have their own advantages and disadvantages. Light-cut pros include:
Great brightness, fire and sparkle
Although the radioactive cut is not as light as the round light cut, it is not too far behind. Due to its pavilion and the 70 facets of the crown, the light cut offers impressive brilliance and fire.
Size larger than other diamond sizes
The radioactive cut is known for being larger in size than most other diamonds of the same carat weight and giving it a slightly bigger look from your fiancé to the tip of your finger.
The area facing the lighting cut is actually slightly smaller than a round shiny diamond of the same carat weight. However, the long diagonal measurement of the lighting cut makes a joke and makes it look bigger than the truth.
Better durability than other square diamonds
The light cut is often compared to a square diamond like a princess cut. Although it looks completely different (princess cut square when lit square or stretched) it is easy to see the matches.
However, a lighter cut has one advantage than a princess cut – it’s much more durable. Because the corners of the radioactive cut are cut at an angle, the radioactive cut engagement rings are less likely to peel off. Hence, if you have an active lifestyle on your fiancé, size is a great option.
Good value for money
When cutting bright diamonds, a large percentage of the original rough diamond is used with little to no waste. This means that a loose shiny diamond costs less per carat than other gemstones. In fact, the brightest cut diamond is the cheapest diamond shape.
For example, this diamond with an accuracy of 1.01 carats and VS1 precision costs 3,300. In the meantime, this light-cut round diamond with the same clarity, color and carat weight will cost 5,240 – – about 40% more. Cutting the lighting on a round light can save you more money on an engagement ring setting or large diamond.
Unfortunately, as with any diamond size, the lighting cut is not without weak points. Bright diamond cuts include the following:
No GIA quality cut
Cutting the diamond is essential to its appearance and determines its brightness (how much light the diamond reflects in order for it to shine). Simply put, a bad cut diamond will never look as close once it is set in an engagement ring as a good cut diamond.
With light cut round diamonds, it’s easy to assess the quality of the cut – just look at the GIA certificate. Unfortunately, GIA does not rate the cut quality of radioactive cut diamonds, which means you must test these with your own care.
To make it even easier, we’ve added cut quality guidelines for cutting radiation further down the page. If you’re not sure what to look for or just like the expert opinion, please feel free to contact us for help determining the cut quality of radioactive cut diamonds.
Radiant cut diamond – quality
Bright diamonds are made with a modified bright cut pattern for both the mandapa and the crown, which gives this diamond its high brightness (the amount of white light that returns, or “sparkles”, to the eye). Because the cut is critical to the beauty of a diamond, especially light-colored diamonds, care must be taken when buying stones.
The GIA only cuts the standard for round bright diamonds. A GIA certificate for radioactive cutting does not contain any cut quality and therefore gives no indication of what the diamond really looks like. When comparing loosely shiny diamonds, make sure they have been carefully assessed by your eyes and, ideally, by professionals.
As a rough guide, we offer advice on how to evaluate a Radiant Diamonds section.
Radiant Cut Diamond – incision
Exceptional very good good fair bad
- Table% 61-69 57-60 or 70-72 54-56 or 73-74 51-53 or 75-79 <51 or> 79
- Depth% 61-67 59-58.9 or 70.1-74 54-56.9 or 74.1-79 54-56.9 or 74.1-79 <54 or> 79
- Too thin – too thin – too thin – too thick
- Schnitzel are very small medium> not medium
Also, watch out for the radioactive angles to make sure they aren’t too wide or too narrow. The angles of intersection of the spotlight give it durability, but must be symmetrical to maintain overall beauty.
Radiant cut diamond – width to width
Exceptional very good good fair bad
- Square 1.00–1.03 1.04-1.05 1.06-1.08 or> 1.08> 1.08
- Rectangle 1.20-1.30 1.15-1.19 or 1.31-1.35 1.10-1.14 or 1.36-1.40 1.08-1.09 or 1.41-1.50 <1.08 or> 1.50
The ratio of the width to the length of a diamond is proportional to its desired size (e.g. square versus rectangular) and is determined by dividing the length of the diamond by the width. For example, if the length of a diamond is 5mm and its width is 3.5mm, the width ratio is 1.43.
The ratio you choose for your bright diamond depends entirely on what you find most aesthetically pleasing in a general bright length to width ratio range of 1.00 to 1.35. The bottom edge indicates a larger square size and indicates the length for a more rectangular shape. The width ratio can be up to 2.0.
For loose bright diamonds, you can check the length to width ratio on a loose diamond side. Below the photos of the blue diamond, it will appear in the Diamond Details section and James Allen will appear in the Product Details section.
You will see that the diamonds in this example differ in their proportions. From the lower edge from 1.15 onwards, the diamond is closer to a square shape, while the upper edge from 1.35 onwards has a more pronounced rectangular shape. Check out the different lengths of the wide proportions before deciding what you like.
Radiant cut diamond – transparency
Precision describes how clear the diamond is. In other words, it measures how comprehensive and how spotless it is.
The GIA rates the precision on the following scales:
- If – internally flawless
- VVS1 – Very, very small inclusion
- VVS 2 – Very, very small inclusion
- VS1 – Very small inclusion
- VS2 – Very small inclusion
- SI1 – Small inclusions
- SI2 – Small inclusions
- I1 – inclusion
- I2 – inclusion
The difference in appearance between two neighboring classes such as VVS1 and VVS2 is seldom different to the naked eye.
Also, the radians are cut with lots of faces and angles so they look like crushed ice. This radiant cut in the solitaire setting made of 14 carat white gold shows the presence of a unique cracked ice. This feature makes it easier to hide inclusions and defects. For this reason, we usually offer a radioactive clear cut diamond of S1 or S2 so you don’t pay for a function that is not guaranteed.
Above all, we recommend that you carefully check a light-cut diamond for inclusions and stains and provide you with professional support.
Radiant cut diamond color
In addition to cuts and precision, you should check out shiny cuts for their color. The color ranking from D to Z is D because it is classified by GIA
Differences in the radiant color cuts are a little easier to see than with other diamond sizes. Even so, we usually offer better results for an H color or a radiation cut diamond, so your budget can be used for other aspects such as the quality of the cut. To the naked eye, the H-Class appears white and colorless to the naked eye.
Radiant Cut Diamond – Suffix
Although many laboratory valuation companies issue reports for radiant cut diamonds, few pairs are credible. Through years of experience, we have consistently and accurately found GIA and AGS grade diamonds while other laboratories are dangerously unmatched.
We recommend only considering radiation media for which a GIA or AGS certificate has been issued. Diamond sellers who continue to provide these certificates include James Allen and Blue Blue.
In addition to getting a lab report, you may want to thoroughly examine all of the diamonds before making a decision. Lab reports don’t tell what the diamond will look like. True beauty and appearance can only be assessed by you and an expert.
Since brilliant cuts have such potential for brilliance, we recommend that a skilled diamond professional help you ensure maximum shine at an affordable price.
Does the radiation make the diamond look bigger? Why?
As we mentioned in the Benefits of Radiant Cutting and Plating, radioactive cut diamonds tend to look larger than most other diamond sizes of the same carat weight.
This is not an accident. When Henry Grossbird designed the digital cut in the 1990s, he wanted to create a diamond cut that looked as big as possible. His goal was not to lose weight in order to maximize the natural beauty of each diamond, as was the custom at the time.
The radioactive cutter helps create the appearance of a large stone due to the wide, flat design, while setting a ring means there are many more diamonds. The end result is a shape that makes the most of light cuts – i.e. H. Its brilliance – combined with a larger size.

Radiant VS. Cushion cut diamonds
While radiation and pillow cuts share similarities with diamonds, they differ in terms of cut and appearance. Both show angles trimmed for stability, although the pillow cuts have rounded edges while the radian has separate edges.
Numerous aspects of radiant and large tables ensure extraordinary, unbeatable brilliance. The pillow cut also offers brightness but is better known for its abundant fire (colorful reflection of light).
Although the length to width ratio depends on personal preference, radiation and pillow cuts are available in a range of squares in rectangular compositions. Not often, pillow cuts are purchased with a width to length ratio of 1.0 to 1.09, which is an indicator of more square size than radians.
The pillow and the radiant cuts are of different sizes and the selection is based on personal preferences. To make the best decision, consider the loved one and their personal style. If you’re still not sure which to choose, reach out to our experts for more advice and guidance.
Radiant VS. Prince cut diamond
Not only does the radiation cut share some features with the pillow cutter, but it also shares some features in common with the princess cutter. In fact, at first glance it can easily look like the point between the pillow cut and the princess cut.
That being said, there are several key differences between the radiation cut and the princess cut.
At first the lighting was beveled at the cut corners, while the princess cut at the sharp, unchanged corners. It gives the princess a lot more squareness and gives her edges a sharper look.
Second, the lighting cut is usually oblong, with the princess cut being the size of a square. Although light cut square diamonds exist, they are not very common and are only a small fraction of all light cut diamonds sold.
Can’t decide between a bright diamond or a princess cut diamond? We’ve compared the two sizes in more detail here, covering their benefits and unique features, unique features, and their value for money.
