How is Moissanite Cut?
Just like a diamond, the quality of the cut of a Moissanite is the most important element to consider. The quality of the cut is the biggest factor in creating sparkle and fire, and without a high cut grade even a Moissanite of high quality can appear dull and lifeless. In addition we have found that Moissanites that aren’t cut well can have a fuzzy, even murky appearance.
When Moissanite cuts are made with the proper proportions, light is returned out of the top of the diamond (which gemologists refer to as the table). If the cuts are too shallow, light leaks out of the bottom; too deep and it escapes out of the side.
“Wait, are you saying that cut is more important than color or clarity?” Yes!
“How does one ensure to get the best cut possible?” This is the million dollar question! If shopping for a diamond one can simply look at the gemological grading report. However such gem reports aren't as common place in the Moissanite world due to prohibitive cost of certifying each Moissanite gemstone.
Therefore, its important to purchase from a company that has expertise in evaluating and selecting the best quality Moissanite cuts. MoissaniteCo.com has been selling Moissanite since 2005, longer than any other Moissanite company around. We use the same gemological tools available to diamond dealers to evaluate the symmetry and light performance of the gems. We evaluate the quality of every Moissanite gem that comes into the company, 1/4ct and larger, and ensure to sell only the very best gems available.
