I have a 1.25 ct forever brilliant RB and it sparkles like crazy in the sun that it’s almost blinding. It’s white for the most part, but sometimes has a buttery tone. Have you tried other forums such as The Facet Lounge or Better Than Diamond for reviews on oval moissys? I’d even check YouTube for videos.

I think the FB round is probably the most sparkly. Moissanite is also more colorful sparkly than a diamond if that’s what you’re going for. Mine is a 2ct. FB round moissanite and it does awesome things in sunlight! I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Agree with PPs, I think the FB round is probably the whitest and sparkles the most. I think the cushion would be a close second. I once had a cushion. Here’s some videos…

Cushion was 1.4 ct eq FB set in palladium with all moissy side stones.

If you want to compare that to the FB OEC I have now (1ct eq, all diamond side stones):

I’ve had a round, oval, and cushion (as of yesterday) and they have all been SUPER sparkly.  I wouldn’t be able to grade them accordly to sparkle factor, they all seem pretty similar. Moissanite will be more “sparkly” than a diamond anyway, so I don’t think you have anything to worry about 🙂

 

Here was my oval (non enhanced, 1ct).  Not a great pic, but she was very sparkly

 

And FB 6mm cushion

This is how I would arrange them from most to least brilliant.  The OEC would be somewhere in the middle, maybe 4 or 5, but its hard to place because the fire/brilliance is different than the rest.

1) Round Brilliant

2) Cushion

3) Oval

4) Square Brilliant

5) Heart

6) Radiant

7) Marquise

8) Pear
