Is a 3/4ct Radiant cut very small?

check the diameter (mm dimension) of a well cut round; now compare to the dimensions of any radiant you are considering

Well, no. That doesn't tell you anything about whether a radiant looks large or small for its size, or how well cut it is. A square radiant for example is always going to be "smaller" than an equivalent weight round but measured in sq mm a rectangular radiant may not be. The round isn't the standard by which everything is judged.

It depends on the eventual setting, one's own lifestyle and perhaps social circle too, and finger size, etc. etc...

No hard and fast rules as the others have already commented.

To give you an idea, I have a .75, H colored radiant that has a 1:1.07 ratio. Pictured next to a .50 radiant cut D4128E86-F939-4255-ABFA-3F076B010268.jpeg 755D6160-0162-4825-9862-B00884961CCF.jpeg

I am wondering how a radiant cut would look in a tapered baguette style? JA is having a setting sale :D
Why not post a link to the setting so people know what you're talking about?

Edit...I looked it up...here is the link. Not my favorite look but I'm not a big baguette fan but in general looks good.

Noticed: www E/SI - it is a modified radiant cut with a step crown, resembling Tiffany's True cut; this is the brightest of several around .7 cts.

There's a G VS2 same cut, that's the one I've been watching.

For clarity, can you go lower w/ a Radiant cut? Like an SI1 or SI2? are inclusions visible to the naked eye?
It depends on each stone, but because they are very crushed ice looking, inclusions tend to hide better.
