I have a 1.4 ct cushion cut moissy on it’s way! Someone at the jeweler told me they lack sparkle compared to round cut. Now im a bit nervous because this girl likes her bling! Please post pics of your rings ladies!

@msformaldehyde: NO WAY. Cushions definitely don’t lack sparkle!
Here’s a video in sunlight and a video under camera light of a 1.4 FB cushion

I have a 1.4 cushion mossy and it’s not lacking in the sparkle department. I’ve never had the opportunity to see a round and a cushion mossy side by side but I’m sure other bees can help out. Have you thought of looking on youtube? I know videos like this exist.

@msformaldehyde: Cushions look their *best* in low light, like candle light, but they definitely will still sparkle. Nothing will sparkle like a round, it’s just science. They are cut in a way to maximize light reflection. Don’t worry, I’m sure you’re going to love it, cushions are my fave shape.

I have a 6.5 mm cushion and in the right lighting it sparkles like a disco ball. Like a PP mentioned, low lighting is the best. Things like restaurants, movie theatre before all the lights go down, it goes crazy. I love the way it looks in those lights! Still think it looks great in all other lightining too. Mine is also unenhanced.

I sounds like someone was just trying to talk you out of purchasing a moissanite! I have a 6mm (1.1ct) cushion moissanite and i literally the most sparkly stone I have ever seen in person! You won’t be disappointed… I promise!

msformaldehyde: I have a FB 1.4 (6.5mm) center in an enclosed bezel and this puppy sparkles like mad. Trust me, you will love your bling! Especially if you intend to prong set it. It will be beautiful. 🙂

My former set pre-upgrade is a 1.4 cushion moissy center and it definitely sparkles!
