"Which cut is the most brilliant or whitest?"

The round brilliant shape is the ideal cut for maximizing the fire and brilliance of the gemstone.  Other cuts, often referred to as "fancy cuts", are cut to maximize the fire and brilliance as much as possible, but it is less than the round brilliant cut.

There is a direct correlation between the brilliance of the Moissanite gemston and how white it appears.  This is because as the white light passes through the top of the gemstone it will cancel out some of the inherent color in the Moissanite cyrstal.  Therefore the most brilliant cut, the round brilliant, is also the whitest cut.

Below is a list of the Moissanite shapes, organized according to their brilliance:
