@MrsBrown13:  I ordered an unenhanced 1.25c Moissy, partly because of the extra cost of FB and partly because I don’t mind a little warmth every once in a while.  I am very happy with my unenhanced stone.  When I was choosing, I emailed C&C to receive clarification about their new rough.  Below is what C&C said to me.  HTH.

Forever Brilliant was launched in June 2012.  It was our classic moissanite that was treated to remove the color.  The process did not change the optical properties, except to make it whiter & brighter.  As of 2013 the rough moissanite has been vastly improved to such a degree that treatment is no longer necessary.  Therefore, our Forever Brilliant is now not treated yet is still whiter & brighter than the classic moissanite.  Also, the Forever Brilliant still has the properties of the classic moissanite such as harder than a ruby or sapphire & tough as a diamond, ruby & sapphire.

All of our stones – classic (original) and FB are both “unenhanced”.  The difference is in the color grading.

All moissanite (Classic & FB) are graded as “near-colorless” – G-H-I-J.  FB will grade in the higher tier of course.  But all moissanite will have some warmth to the stone.  It is part of the sparkle and beauty of the stone.

As moissanite is not diamond it should not be graded on the diamond scale.  But if you are looking for letter grades then yes, Classic would range in the I-J and FB in the G-H.  The only issue with this is that it all depends on the shape & size.  A marquise, pear and radiant will always have more color than a round.  So the scale would slide depending on shape & size.

@MrsBrown13:  I am confused.  You currently have the second ring?  Are you thinking about upgrading the center stone to pink?  I like the first one with the princess cut stones but I LOVE the second three-stone ring.

@MrsBrown13:  the pink stones are FB coated before the color is added so there is no need to worry about that, but you may want to inquire about your side stones.
