I vote for Radiant (although I’m also a sucker for cushions!) – I love the fractured look because it’s like there’s a little galaxy inside the stone – But I understand why it’s not everyone’s thing!

I wanted an elongated cushion with a halo (like Harry Winston’s The One ring), but Fiance got me an elongated radiant at the advice of our jeweler friend (face up size). Although I would have still liked a cushion cut, I absolutely love how sparkly my radiant is!

Cushion! I love the crushed ice effect…it is dainty and elegant and not many people have it! I absolutely love it. 

 

(Not sure why it’s on my thumb in this pic haha)

I have a radiant. I don’t really think it looks splintered or like crushed ice…

I have a radiant. I love it. Mine is splintery, but sparkly as hell.

I went with a Moissanite 1.5 cushion.  Oh so in love…..the ring setting isn’t here yet so I just oohh and aahhh over the stone several times a day.

Sure wish I could really capture its beauty with a photo but they always fall short.  I feel like I shouldn’t post any more pics of it cuz I’d like the bees to really see how beautiful it is.  Not sure how some of you capture the good pics of mossy.

tc1224:  i chose cushion cut, i know that it faces up smaller, but i like the cut better than the radiant as size isn’t important to me.

You should try them on and see what you like best

I was struggling to find many radiants.  I ended up with a Daussi Cushion Cut diamond…which I guess is more similar to an emerald cut with it’s facets.  I love it!  It’s hard to get a good photo of it, but I’m on cloud 9 with it!  I vote cushion 100% now!
