I am waiting on one that’s a little over 3 carats, so while we’re waiting, what do you think of the two different cuts? I presume you’re interested in an elongated radiant, so a similar shape as the emerald?

Go for the emerald cut! They are so classic and elegant!

You could try looking through these threads on Pricescope

Some posts have specs but others don’t.

Last year I had to decide between a radiant and an EC. I love the outline of both but went w/ the EC. I think a radiant is great if you enjoy lots of sparkle and a more electric feeling.  OTOH the EC is good if you like a more calm-appearing stone (the ‘hall of mirrors’ effect) & surprising intense flashes. To me the radiant is like a woman dressed glamorously for a NYE party and the emerald cut is more like the ‘sexy librarian’ stereotype.

You really have to look at them & try them on to see which appeals to you the most.

This is a 2.3 ct emerald cut on a size 5 finger.  I tried it on but we ended up going with and elongated cushion instead (recatangular shape with lots of sparkle). Emerald cuts are so beautiful and classy though.  It was a tough decision πŸ˜ƒ

mrsluna:  Do you have pics of your elongated cushion? Would love to see it and may be a good option to consider if miss @beekay likes radiants?

stayclassystaci:  we were looking for a radiant for a while but just didn’t find the right stone.  This is a 2.75 cushion with a 1:15 L to W ration.  It sometimes looks pretty rectangular but other times looks a little more square.  I’m really happy with the shape.  Love seeing emerald cuts and radiants.  everyone post more pics! πŸ˜ƒ
