Radiant Loose Diamond History

The radiant loose diamond shape was invented by Henry Grossbard in 1977. Until then, rectangular loose diamonds tended to lack brilliance, since the flat and parallel surfaces did little to reflect light. He employed several step cutting techniques, which also highlighted a loose diamond's color. In fact, fancy colored loose diamonds often take the radiant shape.
