    Here is my 1.64 carat OEC.  It sparkles like no other.

    @perlerose:  I’m pretty sure another bee has that ring with an OEC moissy.  Her ring is one of my faves.  Go for the OEC the culet is half the charm.

    This is the best I have.  The ring is too big at a size 8.  I’m actually a 7.

    @perlerose:  You probably won’t find OEC moissys near you but I’m sure you can find OEC diamonds.  This will let you know if you like the cut more than RBs.

    @perlerose:  My preferred diamond or “diamond” shape has always, always been a round brilliant…until the day I saw an OEC. Oh good lord. RB just doesn’t look the same anymore. At this point I would bend upside down and backwards to get an OEC over a RB.

    @perlerose:  Well that’s understandable.  Good luck with your exams!

    @perlerose:  The diamond was heirloom, so I didn’t really have a choice, but I think it looks pretty damn big. Plus, the specs are really good. I’ve never had a shrinkage problem or anything.

    @perlerose:  Apparently girls start to think their diamonds look small after a while. Very bizarre.
