What should I look for when choosing Radiant Cut Moissanite?

Combining the fire of a round brilliant with the elegance of an emerald cut diamond, the radiant moissanite has been popular since 1981. In recent years, the Radiant Cut Moissanite has also become a popular diamond cut shape for many brides. Radiant Cut Moissanite is a combination of a princess square diamond and a cushion-shaped diamond, with the longitudinally angled corners being the most distinctive feature of this cut. When choosing a Radiant Cut Moissanite pays more attention to the proportions of the cut, which will directly affect the style and visual impact of the diamond. Below we share how to choose the aspect ratio of Radiant Cut Moissanite, and the best proportions for the cut.

Cut proportions

Radiant Cut Moissanite is available in both square and rectangular shapes. The aspect ratios for squares range between 1.00 and 1.03 and for rectangles between 1.20 and 1.40. The rectangular aspect ratio is recommended for a larger and more attractive look and a slimmer finger.

Color / Clarity

Radiant Cut Moissanite has a stronger fire, the color appears less pronounced and defects in the diamond are less visible to the naked eye. The color and clarity grades of a diamond can be relaxed as appropriate. Both the fire and sparkle of the radiant cut enhance the color of the moissanite to a certain extent, leaving the inclusions in the stone relatively unnoticeable. The lower limits of acceptable color and clarity grades can therefore be relaxed when choosing Radiant Cut Moissanite.

Aspect Ratio

Radiant Cut Moissanite can be square or rectangular, and the aspect ratio is the most intuitive number reflecting the shape of the diamond. Shape preference varies from person to person, with different aspect ratios of Radiant Cut Moissanite giving a different stylistic impression, the smaller the aspect ratio, the more rectangular it tends to be.

Radiant Cut Moissanite varies in aspect ratio. For those who prefer a square Radiant cut, choose moissanite with an aspect ratio between 1.00 and 1.03. If you prefer Radiant Cut Moissanite that is rectangular, choose moissanite with an aspect ratio between 1.20 and 1.30.


Firstly, in terms of shape, Radiant Cut Moissanite is available in both square and rectangular shapes. Rectangular Radiant Cut Moissanite creates a slender finger effect, while square Radiant Cut Moissanite will make a petite hand look more attractive. Again, in terms of size, you can choose according to the shape of your hand.


Shaped diamonds are usually around 30% cheaper than their round counterparts, which makes them a popular purchase for many consumers. As well as the choice of Radiant Cut Moissanite itself, price is a key that should not be overlooked. Radiant Cut Moissanite of the same grade may be offered in different brands. For consumers, value for money is the most important concern, so shop around and choose the best value for money when making your purchase.

If you are looking for the elegance of a rectangular or square shape, and the fire of a round brilliant diamond, then perhaps a Radiant Cut Moissanite engagement ring may be the perfect choice for you. Get ready to start shopping!
