Wonderful review!!!! Awesome information, thank you for posting! I know there were a few things you weren’t thrilled with, but this is seriously making me lust after an OEC moissy πŸ™‚

@claireos:  great review – thank you! i have a question for you and any other bees with experience with OEC moissanite: 

in your stone, the center looks like it’s pushing ‘out’ (towards the top) to me – is that normal? it looks like an ‘outie’ bellybutton! i have my heart set on an OEC but that would really bother me. is is something that is just dependant on how the batch was cut or a characteristic that is viewable when you look at it a certain way? 

i’m hoping that my ring will be able to be made with an OEC that doesn’t have the ‘pushing out’ effect – anyone able to clarify for me?

@claireos:  What an informative review! Thank you for taking the time to do all of that. Your pics are wonderful. That said though, your OEC looks a little weird in the center to me. Is it the pic or is it like that in person as well?

@claireos: This was exactly how I felt about both the modern round and oec moissanite I ordered. It was pretty in some light but in others the center looked totally flat and hollow and dark. I just couldn’t get over that. Plus, the oec I got had a huge culet, which I really dislike. I think the PP that is talking about it pushing out means the high table btw (or maybe the darkness/culet). On my phone so it’s a pain to link usernames.

@claireos:  yeah – i’d love to see one in person. i mean – the center facets around the culet appear to make…a teepee? nipple? haha i don’t know how else to describe it. i was just wondering if that is standard in the OEC cut. 

@1inthechamber:  

i found a thread on it here: both the stones have the effect, but it’s much more noticeable in the second stone. so maybe it’s possible to select one with less of the effect.

@peonyinlove:  Mine doesn’t do that. I’m going to see if I can find it.

That particular OEC is cut way too deep, that is what is giving it that pop corn/belly button outie look. That’s also why you’re seeing a lack of sparkle. It’s a shame, since OEC diamonds are fireballs and throw amazing color, it’s stunning really, I can only imagine what kind of fire a well-cut moissanite OEC would show. 

Not to get off topic, but what project are you looking at? Because your yellow diamond/S-T colored diamond ring is STUNNING

@peonyinlove:  that is what I hate about it as well! I think some are “duds” and some don’t do that so much, but it’s hard to get one that doesn’t.

Sorry you are not thriiled, again.  I feel bad.  I see what you are seeing though, and it is not the best cutting on that stone.  They have cut the crown too shallow, so it looks like an obsrtuction.
