luludrury:  Cushion is lovely on you. Btw moissanite OECs were discontinued like 6 months ago.

What size cushion is that? Just wondering.

Why would moissanite discontinue the OEC? That is such a bonehead move!

luludrury:  I think it’s lovely!! I have an OEC, but I love me a cushion! The bezel miiiight accentuate its shape more, maybe that’s what you are seeing? I really do like it, but if you don’t, ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

I’m not usually a fan of cushion cuts but yours is gorgeous. Love the bezel setting and how simple it is! Good luck with your decision.

luludrury:  I’m sure theres still stock. I was more saying it bc if you want one you should do it soon lol

the cushion looks great on your finger but if youre not feeling it go with what you want most

Bridey77:  I heard it was bc the cut wasn’t popular enough. Makes sense. WB is only a small part of the market and most ppl arent looking for old cuts

anxiousbee323:  That’s a shame! They look so pretty in the pics I’ve seen. I really feel like the pics of the rings and stones on the Moissy sites are all these really awful stock images.  They need a site revamp for sure.

luludrury:  Personally I love the look of cushion bezels much, much more than round bezels but you seem to have the opposite opinion. 😉 OEC and cushion are tied for my favorite cut and I think both are gorgeous.

What makes you think you should have gone for the OEC? Just the setting being too square? Is there a way you can change the setting on your cushion to be more rounded? I ask because the OEC has a very different faceting pattern than the cushion and the light return would be different. If you like the way your cushion sparkles, I think you should keep it and change the setting to something that makes the cushion look more rounded.

Essentially the question you have to answer is: are you sure enough that, if you were to exchange the cushion for the OEC, you would not want to go back to the cushion?
