What is a radiant cut diamond? 

The radiant cut is one of the most brilliant diamond shapes available today. They have 70 facets with an octagonal shape and cropped corners, making them similar to the emerald cut. Radiant cut diamonds have the outline of emerald-cut diamonds but show far more brilliance. They are a hybrid diamond shape, a clever fusion of the step cut of the emerald shape and the brilliant cut of round diamonds. This combination improves the sparkle and brilliance of the stone, while preserving the focus on outstanding depth, drawing the eye into the diamond

Do radiant cut diamonds look larger than other types?

It is known that radiant cuts appear larger than most other diamonds of the same carat weight, giving it extra presence on their wearer’s finger.
