    @boulderbean:  I would go with the OEC, but I also love that cut!

    I voted for the Ring Bearer, but it’s not a fair vote bc I don’t understand the appeal of the OEC (and I’m color sensitive too). Can you explain what you like about the OEC? The only thing I know about it is from Wikipedia, which says it is an older, less sophisticated cut. From reading Wikipedia it seems like this cut is . . . just bad! But obviously lots of people love it (and widipedia is no style guide!), can you explain why?

    @Jade33:  It was cut by hand, so it’s imperfect based on current standards, and the sparkle is amazing, but only when you realize they were looking by candlelight and not modern fluorescence. It’s more big flashes of light rather than little bits of sparkle. It’s hard to explain until you’ve seen one in person 🙂 It has a chunkier girdle and more depth. Check out some estate stores and you’ll see 🙂

    The Amora Round Brilliant is not comparable to a Diamond Round Brilliant; actually this is how you can tell the difference between a diamond and moissanite with this particular cut. The Amora Gemstone will be (but this will not be available in the US until 2015)equivalent to a diamond round brilliant cut. Also, the Asha has the same cut as a diamond.

    I think color is going to be more up-front noticeable.  to most people glancing at your hand, they are going to think “round diamond”.  go for the whiter stone, IMO.

    I saw the two being compared side by side and honestly, I can’t tell the difference: http://betterthandiamond.com/discussion/ubbthreads.php/topics/676688/all/OEC_and_Ring Bearer_moissanite_photo_an

    but I can understand why the cut may matter to you and you alone. (for example, I want a princess cut stone but NOT a square brilliant.)  but what I’m saying is that if they were both equally white, then go for the OEC. but since color also matters to you and one is whiter, than go with the whiter one.
