@sporting:  Do you mean which one looks whiter? RB is supposedly the best cut for the whitest and most sparkly moissanite, enhanced or not, although I do love me some OEC moissanite!

OEC is the clearer cut (I’ve owned both). Yes, both cuts have the same “clarity” because the clarity of the rough moissanite is the same regardless of the cut of the stone.

@sporting:  I have an unenhanced and I feel its very white.

Clarity won’t change between unenhanced and Forever Brilliant – Forever Brilliant will just be whiter.


Round brilliants will look whiter because they’re cut to maximize light play.  They give you more of a “sparkly” look.  OECs tend to have chunkier facets, and do tend to show more body color.  That cut makes for less sparkle and larger rainbowy flashes.
