Old mine cushion cuts have a slightly curved edge and are not fully round. They were first developed in 18th century Europe and have a form resembling a soft square. Always featuring a small table they do come in a variety of facet patterns, a high crown, and larger culet.

As may be evident by the name, the "emerald cut" was originally developed for cutting emeralds, not diamonds. The trim lines of emerald cut diamonds lend an elegant, sophisticated feel to both the simplest and most elaborate ring settings.

The Radiant possesses the brilliance of a round cut diamond and the classic shape of an emerald diamond but with blocked corners. Clients that prefer an elongated shape that will lengthen a woman's finger but with the fire and brilliance of a round cut diamond, the radiant might be a great match for you.
