In shopping for a diamond I learned that the ideal cut only exists  in rounds.  There is no ideal cut oval cut, radiant, etc. Therefore if you are asking the question, how does the radiant cut Moissanite compare to a radiant cut diamond?  The reply would be, which radiant cut diamond?  Because the cut varies, not only in quality but pattern.  There are some diamond websites that have actual pics of diamonds that you can compare against.  I think James Allen, for example, does.

Mois Co recently posted a video of some radiant cut Moissanites on their instagram feed and they are beautiful

Here is a .75 ct real diamond : https://www.knoxjewelers.biz/videos/mp4/ericbattjes.mp4

Diamond by itself is about $2500.

You can get an idea of how the cut differs in the videos. I know moissy is cut shallowly because of the doubleness of refraction and it is more splintery. It can develope a hard to remove stain, although mine hasn’t so far.

“I know moissy is cut shallowly because of the doubleness of refraction “

The radiant cut isn’t a shallow cut at all in Moissanite.  Its quite deep, deeper than many diamonds.  Its cut to maximize the brilliance and remove the bowtie.   Its only double refractive when viewed through the side (the faceting pattern doesn’t have anything to do with the it, however). 

Here are two radiants on the James Allen website.  As you can see they look very different from each other.  There is no standard diamond radiant cut.

That JTV radiant’s color is quite greenish yellow compared to the ones Moiss Co posted on their instagram.  JTV stopped selling C&C Moissanite earlier this year.  They no longer C&C warranty cards and are no longer listed as a retailer on C&C’s website.
