For diamonds, EC are hard to find and select with great performance, but radiants are even harder to find. If you have your heart set on a radiant diamond, I would contact GoodOldGold or Diamonds by Lauren. Victor Canera has some nice radiants, as well.
For moissy, I think EC’s benefit from the added sparkle offered by moissy. Radiants can be great or suffer from the excess fire that some rounds exhibit. So, it would come down to brand. If you go through a good retailer who is picky about cut, I prefer the C&C EC over some of the others. I also like the Zaya. There are not many radiants out there, but I liked Zaya posted by JHollywood. The F1 radiant is off.

I don’t have one but I love emerald cuts! I might have gone for one myself but the webbing between my fingers is uneven and makes anything but a round sit unevenly and look wonky.

I feel you can’t really appreciate the beauty of an emerald cut without seeing it in action. Here’s a video of my set I took after my wedding. Love the bold flashes of light!!

I vote radiant! I have an oval brilliant, but considered radiant for the sparkle factor! 🙂

I have an emerald cut moissanite in a halo! It’s 8x6mm which is considered a 1.5 ct equivalent 🙂 I liked elongated stones but I wasn’t big on the crushed ice look and I love the big chunky facets of step cuts! Emerald cut all the way, but I feel you can’t go wrong with any cut nowadays, there are so many beautiful settings and stones out there!

I love how timeless emerald stones look. Adding a halo makes it a little more modern and fun!

I don’t have a an emerald or radiant, but they are at the top of the list for me and will be our next shape when we upgrade. I usually prefer the look of a solitaire, but these are great halos. Sides stones , like the trapezoid, is also a great look and alternative to a halo. I agree with a previous post, you really just have to try them on though!
