Mine is a cushion and it definitely looks smaller than the same size in a round diamond, but it was pretty close to the princess cut

radiant looks the biggest out of the 3. Princess and cushion look about the same

Dont focus that much on face-up size. Focus on cut and optical performance. A shallow stone that faces up larger will not be as beautiful.

@LavenderBride24:  Heck no, measurements for a 1ct princess face up is only 5.5mm x roughly 5.5mm (they are hardly ever a perfect square), 1ct round is 6.5mm x 6.5mm, coushion is the same as a princess and a radiant can be cut differently..like a 1ct square radiant would be like a 5.75×5.75mm and an elongated 1ct radiant would be like 6.41x 4.80mm…there are no set ideal perameters for a radiant.

The only time a princess cut would look the same size as a round face up (if both are the same ct weight) is if you kite set it or add a halo. I kite set my princess:
