What Is a Radiant Cut Engagement Ring?
A radiant cut appeared in the late 1970s but has already taken the world of jewellery by storm. It was designed to combine the exceptional properties of the round and emerald cut: the exquisite blink and octagonal shape. Many celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Khloe Kardashian were mesmerised by the unusual appeal and chose radiant engagement rings over traditional ones.
Pros of Radiant Cut Engagement Rings
- Supreme brilliance and flair. Faceting precision in the radiant engagement rings ensures maximum light rebound and a rich, colourful prism. The brilliance of this diamond can only be rivalled by a round cut.
- Extra presence. A radiant diamond appears larger than its step-cuts of the same carat weight. It is an attractive item if your fiancé-to-be appreciates bulky jewellery.
- Agreeable prices. The cutting process involves very little wastage, so the radiant shaped engagement ring costs less. You have an outstanding opportunity to buy a precious, meaningful gift without breaking the bank.
- First-class durability. Thoroughly bevelled corners provide substantial protection from chips and breakage, making radiant cut engagement rings a number one purchase for people with hectic lives.
Cons of Radiant Shaped Engagement Rings
- Bowtie region. Poorly cut radiants may have a black band running across the middle of the stone. The degree of the band differs from barely visible to severe. However, it doesn't necessarily have to blemish your ideal stone. Look for an excellent cut, and you won't notice any inclusions in your radiant engagement ring.
- Radiant diamonds are bottom-heavy, e.g. most of the pavilion is hidden beneath the surface. Consequently, the profound depth dulls brilliance. If you wish to save the unsurpassed glow, you'll have to go for a bigger size.
- Even though radiant cut is a fan favourite, it is still a rarity. Only reputable stores offer beautiful radiant engagement rings, so searching for "the one" will test your patience. On the other hand, your partner will treasure the band more, knowing how much effort you've put into finding it.
Start with Material
Metal is a significant component of any radiant cut engagement ring. With plenty of options on the table, it's hard to decide. Ideally, the band's material should match the owner's personality and coincide with their fashion style. It's also advised to account for skin compatibility since white and yellow gold cause rashes by allergics. To lend you a hand, we've outlined a few must-know qualities of precious metals:
The best materials for radiant cut engagement rings are undoubtedly white gold and platinum. Their reflective quality magnifies the hall of mirrors effect and intensifies the sparkle.
Platinum is your fit if you want a metal that meets all standards. Radiant cut engagement rings in platinum are hypoallergenic, tarnish-resistant and simply posh. With yellow sheen fading into the background, they have gained extreme popularity. Purchase a platinum band if you expect your accessory to last a decade and spare no expense.
The reputation of white gold precedes it. The metal is well-known for its affordable price, elegant sheen and modernistic touch. Radiant cut engagement rings in white gold symbolise chivalry and unwavering commitment. They require proper care and occasional replating. Select one if your better half likes silver accessories or aesthetic clothing.
Rose gold is a solid pick for women who fancy gentle pastel hues and innovative jewellery. The metal is skin-friendly; it humbly complements any attire and represents sincere feelings. Your partner has probably dreamt of the proposal her whole life, so you need it to make it flawless. Now, imagine standing on one knee, looking into her charming eyes and presenting her with a glimmering token of love. Who could say "no" to that?
Yellow gold is a time-tested option for radiant cut engagement rings. It has relatively high corrosion resistance and an aura of luxury. Since the dawn of time, yellow gold signified trust, faithfulness and wealth. Buy a band in this metal for charismatic and strong-willed women.
Choose Best Design
It may come as a surprise, but a diamond doesn't create the overall perception of the ring. It's the setting that runs the show.
While radiants are characterised by great combinability, you might want to read up on their performance with various designs:
When it comes to radiant cut engagement rings, a solitaire setting is second to none. It flaunts a single diamond raised and held by four prongs on a thin, delicate band. The radiant cut is spectacular in terms of sparkle and original shape. Therefore, it deserves the central stage without distracting elements. The solitaire minimalist design allows the stone to shine to its fullest. Consider buying it if your beloved prefers soothing tones and a stylish look.
A halo setting is another sought-after pairing for a radiant diamond. It features one main stone mounted in a circle of smaller rocks; thus, extra blink and immense size are guaranteed! Opt for a halo radiant engagement ring if your partner enjoys being in the limelight.
Side stones setting also displays tiny luminous diamonds and a central one. However, the adjacent stones forge a pave instead of a circle. Such an ensemble resembles a starry night sky and is a befitting ending for your romance-full evening.
Vintage setting is a classic option for diamonds of squarish shape. The hypnotising allure of the past is manifested in intricate ornaments that gracefully surround the main gem. The stone's size is amplified in a vintage engagement ring, and all the attention switches to a peculiar radiant cut. Choose this band if your special one is enamoured of antiquity.
Three stones radiant cut engagement ring embodies the couple's present, past and future. As the name suggests, the setting features a central diamond flanked by two smaller stones. You can mix various shapes and sizes to add a flattering contrast and underline radiant's uniqueness.
