Radiant cut diamonds were first developed and patented in 1977 by Henry Grossbard who was the founder of RCDC. The radiant cut diamond was the first diamond to combine the elegance of the emerald shape and the fire and brilliance of a round diamond. When the patent on the radiant cut diamond expired the radiant cut became a fully accepted diamond shape and began to be widely distributed by both wholesalers and manufacturers. In 2002 RCDC launched the Original Radiant Cut diamond brand and the original radiant cut is the only radiant cut that is guaranteed to meet the ideal proportions established by Henry Grossbard.

Much like circular shaped diamonds, radiant cut diamonds allow you to see the deep, natural clarity of the diamond. When you look at a radiant diamond from the front you can clearly distinguish the diagonal cross pattern that is created between the sides of the diamond. It is this stunning cross pattern that helps to make radiant cut diamonds more beautiful than many other types of diamond and makes it the ideal diamond to choose for the centrepiece of a diamond ring.

Traditionally a radiant cut diamond has 62 faces. 25 of these faces are on the crown, 8 on the griddle and 29 on the pavilion. The corners are we trimmed and are considered to be the signature of the diamond. Due to the shape of this type of diamond the proportions and the faces makes the colour of the diamond more visible and this cut of diamond is known for both fancy and non fancy cuts.

Rings that have been set with radiant cut diamonds are some of the most desirable rings as they have such unique style and shape and can also have very unusual colours. This kind of diamond set ring are also available in a number of unique shapes so you do not have to stick with what could be considered a boring round or rectangular shape.

Radiant cut diamonds are also very popular in engagement rings and the tradition of using radiant cut diamonds for engagement rings dates back to the fourteenth century. The diamond is usually the centrepiece of the ring but you can also attach side stones in a number of different ways. If you decide to purchase your diamond ring online you should always check the length and width of the diamond as there are no rules for these measurements.
