double refraction’s not something you can really see with the naked eye, you can only really see it with a loupe.  The issue with the round brilliant cut is that it has a flatter crown and more needle like “arrows”, than the standard round brilliant.  If you’re not too into cuts, you might not see the difference.  It’ll have a glittery sparkle And will face up whiter, so in that sense it’s sparklier.

 

Oec’s will have larger more rainbowy flashes and show more body color.  Personally I prefer the oec because I like the broad flashes, but it’s really a matter of taste.

I own both an amora-ized OEC (7.5mm) and round brilliant stones, un-enhanced (5.5mm), and my RB stones show MUCH more body color than my OEC. I prefer the broader flashes of light returned with the OEC versus the splintery glitter effect seen with moissy RB stones, of course, once H&A cut moissy becomes available, I may change my mind and love them equally.

I’m pretty sure there are some videos on YouTube showing the difference between the cuts if you are interested.
