I was in the same boat as you trying to decide between the two so I actually got both but moissanites….2 emerald cuts and 1 radiant all in 14k white gold and one is a plain solitaire, one twisted band solitaire and the other a solitaire with side diamonds. All are pretty but I love step cuts so my vote is emerald! Here’s pics of mine.

After years of loving other cuts, but never feeling satisfied with what I had, I found my forever stone in an emerald cut!  I never would have guessed how much the step cut faceting and light play would please my eyes.  So I vote for EC!

Emerald all the way! Emeralds are classic, and radiants are too trendy right now.

Emerald here! Before getting engaged, I had sent my fiancé photos of emeralds and ovals – two very different cuts – and couldn’t be happier to have the emerald! To me, it’s so timeless and classic – but mine with some flare, the halo and the rose gold! Here it is in various lighting.

I’m super partial to step cuts, as I have two asschers and an emerald 🙂

They are very different in person, I’d go see some to make sure you know what you’re getting into.


I love emeralds, but lots of people don’t.
