There is indeed something about a rock on your finger that shines no matter which way you may look at it. The sparkle of the engagement ring would outdo your smile if it is a radiant cut diamond. The beauty of the radiant cut is that they offer both a unique style and classic sparkle. Moreover it is available in multiple shapes so that there is no need to settle on round or rectangle. Since there is a number of shapes available, couple would find it difficult to land on a decision. The possibilities would seem endless with the array of settings available.
There are some features that make the radiant cut diamond engagement ring so special. Primarily the cut itself is peculiar and special. Diamond’s natural brilliance is shone through the design so perfectly. Earlier, couples had a limited choice as they had to select between the cut and the brilliance. The diamond has to be in round shape, if the bride wanted a radiant shine. Couples used to compromise on the sparkle if they wanted a rectangle shaped diamond. The best part of the radiant cut is that it combines the best of both, the emerald cut and the brilliant cut. All the credit goes to Henry Grossbard who had designed the cut and made it absolutely a masterpiece.
You may wonder how exactly the cut of a diamond can affect the appearance of the stone. Basically the cut determines the proportion and if size matters, then quality cut is of utmost importance. It is true that a finely cut small stone would appear large and more brilliant than a poorly cut bigger stone. So the best part of getting a perfect cut is that you can have a ring of your dreams on a tighter budget. This means the stone size may be small but would look more attractive. What you need to be careful about is finding a reputable jeweler who would eventually get you exactly the stone that you dreamt of and more importantly paid for. If you are going for a customized engagement ring, you can ask for the radiant cut diamond in that ring.
If you manage to find a reputable jeweler, he would surely help you to find an engagement ring with the right cut and the right quality. Most of the jeweler’s would be more than willing to explain the whole process to the customers as they are sure to find a captive audience. And of course it is worth the time and money to listen to the process, especially if you are going for a customized engagement ring.
Buying a diamond engagement ring is a complicated process but it can be made fun at the same time. In addition to cut, there are other things that require attention like the carat which is the weight of the stone, color like yellow, pink, blue and clarity which means the amount of imperfection present on the stone. Couples would also consider how much of a blue-ish tint would be present in the diamond under ultra violet light. This is called the fluorescence property of the stone. However it is the diamond cut that matters most and is the primary factor in selecting a ring.
