    I’ve never seen a round Moissy in person, but my ring is a cushion Moissy. I think it’s really just personal preference.

    I haven’t seen them in person, but I spend an unhealthy amount of time looking at pics of both, and I think the cushion’s a prettier cut.  I’m not a fan of the round brilliant faceting.  The faceting makes for a more glittery sparkle.  You won’t see the difference between a round brilliant moissy and a diamond unless you’re really looking, but it’s there.  The big giveaway for me when I’m looking at moissy is the “arrows” on the round brilliant are quite needlelike.  Their OEC on the other hand…Kiss

    @Lalk2bee:  I love it. Mine is unenhanced, and it definitely has some warmth, but I am not bothered by that in the slightest (and that has nothing to do with the cut). It’s a beautiful cute, in my opinion.

    I know MoissaniteCo has a great return policy, so a lot of people will order loose stones to see if they like Moissanite first. You could order a loose round brilliant and a loose cushion to compare!

    There may also be other threads or posts on here that dive into the topic more. Try searching for them.

    RB’s tend to show less color if that is what you are after. I also just love RB’s in general — so much, in fact, that mine is coming today.

    I have never seen moissy in person but I am in love with my cushion so that is my vote.

    I am so in love with round its not even funny!

    I looked at cushion and round for my ring because I wanted something a little different, but I am so glad I didnt go for different over what I actually loved.

    IMO round is classic and timeless, you will never regret going with elegant beauty.

    Round for me is the best cut available. ๐Ÿ™‚ Not to mention I think it sparkles much more than other cuts (only have marquise and princess to compare to thou)
