Moissanite is Cut To Maximize Fire & Brilliance Unlike diamonds which are most commonly cut to maximize carat weight, Moissanite gemstones are cut and faceted to maximize the superior fire and brilliance of the gemstone. The ideal Moissanite cut patterns were established after years of studying the angles of light refraction through Moissanite. The Moissanite gems are faceted to take full advantage of the crystal's inherent superior fire and brilliance.
Marquise shaped Moissanite creates an illusion of long fingers. It is popular as an heirloom jewellery. When Marquise is worn as a ring, it promotes an elongated, slender look. This cut maximises carat weight, making a Moissanite look bigger than a round cut of the same carat weight.
