Radiant is really nice for colored diamonds. For those very reasons. Need a good diamond to use that shape and you keep the depth of color. My ideal engagement ring, should I ever do such a thing, would a a radiant cut fancy yellow!
Someone mentioned a tanzanite as an engagement ring. One word of caution about that- Tanzies are softer stones so I don't know how well it would hold up. A nice sapphire would be a better choice for blue color and durability.
