So…I started a board about a week ago asking for help on deciding if I should get a moissanite or diamond and I decided on Moissanite. I thought I found my PERFECT ring until I started reading other wedding forums…
So my question is: Should I get round or princess cut moissanite? On another site someone posted that the “princess brilliant” cut moissanite is different that a princess cut diamond. My husband and I really like princess cut stones and I’m wondering if I would like the “princess brilliant” the same?
P.S if you have pics of either I would really like to see 🙂 Thanks a bunch!

All moissanite cuts are slightly different than the diamond version of the same cuts. The reason for this is because moissanite has different optical properties, so it needs to be cut at different angles from a diamond in order to maximize it’s unique beauty.
That said, even though my round moissy has a different cut from diamond, I cannot for the life of me see the difference. I am no expert, but when I looked at my round moissy next to a round diamond, they looked like the same cut to me. I’m not sure about square moissanites, but I doubt the cuts are so different that it’d be easy to tell with the naked eye.
