Choosing Your Moissanite Engagement Ring: Comparing Cuts

Moissanite Engagement Rings – A recent trend in the jewelry industry

Picking the perfect cut is your most important decision when choosing moissanite engagement rings. Contrary to popular belief, the cut of the moissanite refers to the proportions and symmetry of the stone’s facets. It does not point toward the shape of the stone.

The amount of light dispersed and reflected to create sparkle is greatly influenced by the number of facets and ratios on each stone. Here at Bhumi Gems, we offer different designs and styles to help you choose the perfect moissanite stone for your partner.

Designed in 1919 by a Belgian diamond cutter, Marcel Tolkowsky, the iconic round brilliant cut moissanite dates back over 100 years ago. This traditional round cut is made of 58 facets, thus making space for maximum light reflection. It has a brilliant fire, sparkle, and radiance.

The round cut is highly versatile; thus, it is no surprise that it is a classic and timeless style.

Cut grading – To ensure that the light does not reflect through the sides but instead through the diamonds, the height of the gemstone needs to be accurate. When this is achieved, the round cut’s sparkle appears phenomenal.

The cut of the ring allows more light to enter, which then splits into spectacular colors, thus creating a rainbow effect when it catches the light. In terms of shape, it is square with rounded corners on top and bottom and cone-shaped on the sides.

Cut grading – The cushion-cut moissanite engagement rings have a larger number of facets when compared to round and oval cuts. As a result, more white light can be split into its spectral colors, giving it that glamorous rainbow effect when it catches the light.
