Our princess cut displays the signature chevron faceting throughout the stone’s pavilion. This pattern gives a distinct X- shaped reflection through the stone that princess cut admirers expect, in addition to the fire and brilliance.
Emerald cuts, classified as step cuts, are sought after for their clean lines and sophisticated elegance. This cut rose to popularity in the Art Deco era and has since remained a top choice for engagement rings. Our Radiance® emerald cut is cut to ideal proportions for brilliance and beauty. It contains crisp parallel facets through the stone and windmills in each corner to insure the cut is as authentic as possible. While technically step cuts will have less fire compared to brilliant cuts, they more than make up for it in elegance and glamour. Step cuts are often referred to as a hall of mirrors.
Our step cut sophistication continues with our Radiance asscher cut. Asscher and emerald cuts are both classified as step cuts. The main differences between an emerald cut and an asscher cut are the shape and faceting. An asscher cut is more square, while an emerald cut is rectangular.

The Radiance® oval cut is a romantic and modern twist on the classic round brilliant. Benefits to the oval shape is that it elongates the finger and provide more finger coverage, making your finger appear longer and thinner and your stone appear larger. Our Radiance oval is cut to an optimal length to width ratio for maximum brilliance and elegance.
Crushed Ice oval
The crushed ice look is most frequently sought after for cushions, but oval lovers often look for this as well. The faceting suits the romantic oval shape and adds another dimension to one of the most popular fancy shapes. Our crushed ice oval has the same flattering proportions as our brilliant cut oval and is destined to look fabulous in whatever setting you could dream up for it.
The Pear cut, also sometimes referred to as a teardrop shape, is a mix of a round brilliant and a marquise. It can be worn with the point facing down or up and looks wonderful in halo, solitaire and three stone settings. Pears cuts, like all elongated cuts, are flattering on all hands and make the wearer’s finger look longer. Our Radiance pear is cut to be not too fat and not thin, with what we feel is the “just right” length to width ratio.
We have two modern cushions in our Radiance® line. Our square cushion has a beautiful Hearts and Arrows cut, whereas our elongated cushion is what is commonly referred to as a “crushed ice” cut. This crushed ice faceting creates more rolling fire through the stone, making it incredibly brilliant and captivating. Whether you prefer the ideal optics of the H&A cut or the beautiful and rolling fire from the elongated cushion, we have your dream cushion available.
Crushed Ice Square Cushion
If you prefer a square cushion, we understand...we love them too! No crushed iced cushion lover is left behind with our cushion cuts. Our beautiful crushed ice faceting can also be applied when cutting a square cushion, so you really can have you square stone and crushed ice too.
Our cushal cut is the only custom cut gemstone of it’s kind on the market. The cushal is a true hybrid. It is not exactly a cushion but not exactly an oval either. Some might call it a cushiony oval, or an oval-like cushion, but whichever way you describe it, it is a knockout! While the silhouette is a rubanesque oval, with a hint of old world charm, the faceting is as modern as you get. The rolling fire and sparkle can only be found in modern gemstone featuring a crushed ice faceting. This is a cut all sparkle lovers can agree on.
