Hearts and Arrows AGS 000 Round Brilliant
If you are looking for a “perfect” round, diamond alternative, this is the cut for you. An AGS 000 rating means that is stone is recognized as an ideal cut with regards to light performance, polish, and symmetry.

Hearts and Arrows Square Cushion
Not your ordinary brilliant cut cushion! Our Hearts and Arrows Square cushion gives cushion lovers the best of both worlds. Our beautiful, pillowy cushion shape is cut with a precise hearts and arrows pattern, maintaining ideal optics in performance, polish, and symmetry. If you are a cushion cut nut with a discerning eye for detail, this is the modern cushion cut for you.
If an elongated cushion and an emerald cut had a baby, it would be our radiant cut. This elongated stone has the rectangular, clipped corner shape of an emerald cut, with the modern brilliant faceting of a cushion cut. Our radiant cut has the same, modern “crushed ice faceting as our elongated cushion, and is full of sparkle. This cut is modern and a bit edgy, and looks fabulous in both solitaire and halo designs.
Our Radiance princess cut moissanite is the only princess cut moissanite we have seen on the market that authentically resembles a princess cut diamond, in both faceting and performance. Our princess cut has the signature chevron faceting through the stone’s pavilion. This faceting gives a distinct X- shaped reflection through the stone that princess cut lovers expect, and the fire and brilliance to go along with it.
Emerald cuts, classified as step cuts, are sought after for their clean lines and sophisticated elegance. This cut rose to popularity in the Art Deco era, and has since remained a top choice for engagement rings. Our Radiance emerald cut is cut to ideal proportions for brilliance and beauty. It has crisp parallel facets through the stone and windmills in each corner, to insure the cut is as authentic as possible. While technically step cuts will have less fire compared to brilliant cuts, they more than make up for it in elegance and glamour. Step cuts are often referred to as a hall of mirrors.
Our step cut sophistication continues with our Radiance asscher cut. Asscher and emerald cuts are both classified as step cuts. The main differences between an emerald cut and an asscher cut are the shape and faceting. An asscher cut is more square, while an emerald cut is rectangular. As well, asscher cuts have a smaller table with more faceting, showing an X pattern through the table., while emerald cuts have a wider, more open table. Our Radiance asscher cut has been created with optimal performance and symmetry, and will not disappoint.
The Radiance oval cut is a romantic and modern twist on the classic round brilliant. Benefits to the oval shape is that it is elongating on the finger, and the cut can provide more finger coverage, making your finger appear longer and thinner and your stone appear larger. Our Radiance oval is cut to an optimal length to width ratio for maximum brilliance and elegance. And like our other Radiance Moissanite cuts, and we have ensured the faceting to be crisp, realistic, and authentic.
The Pear cut, also sometimes referred to as a teardrop shape, is mix of a round brilliant and a marquise. It can be worn with the point facing down or up, it is totally your preference, and looks wonderful in halo, solitaire, and three stone settings. Pears cuts, like all elongated cuts, are flattering on all hands and make the wearer’s finger look longer. Our Radiance pear is cut to be not too fat and not thin, with what we feel is the “just right” length to width ratio.
We have two modern cushions in our Radiance Moissanite line. Our square cushion has a beautiful Hearts and Arrows cut, whereas our elongated cushion as what is commonly referred to as a “crushed ice” cut. This crushed ice faceting creates smaller, more rolling fire through the stone, and is incredibly realistic and diamond like. Just as diamond cushions come in many shapes and cuts, so do our Radiance cushions. Whether you prefer the ideal optics of the H&A cut, or the beautiful and realistic fire from the elongated cushion, we have your dream cushion available.
