C&C Forever One, C&C Hearts & Arrows or MoissaniteCo H&A – most diamond like?

Hey … I found these videos helpful. Personally, I went with the h&a because I don’t like the rainbow effect of the round brilliant and how big and flat the table is when compared to the h&a, good luck with finding that perfect stone for you.

I just received a 7.5 mm C&C H&A YESTERDAY that I ordered from MoissaniteCo. I researched for a couple of months before making my decision. I had only seen a F1 (round brilliant) cut in person and found it too rainbowy. There were so many characteristics that sold me on the H&A even without seeing it in person so I just went ahead, and it looks great! Will be getting it set soon.

By the way, I don’t think moissaniteco makes their own h&a stone anymore.

morrigan :  Watching the fire and brilliant videos it’s obvious which one is the diamond and which one is the moissy, but I think moissy is a beautiful stone in it’s own right.  I think a H&A will be the most diamond like if that’s what you’re going for.  I think the Forever 1 (colorless or near colorless) will be a close comparison.

I’d go for an H&A, but be aware that moissanite can develop a stain.

morrigan :  I agree with jayrock, I’ve only seen the F1 colorless from C&C in person and it’s very rainbowy, and some do prefer that … The table on the H&A sits a little higher, therefore sacrifices some of the intensity of the fire. It is still very sparkly, I read from other bees that the bigger the size, the less diamond-like it appears … Some have said anything bigger than a 7.5mm you lose the diamond-like appearance.

morrigan :  It does have colourful sparkle, but not as intense as the f1. I get more white light flashes which is what I was after. It’s very beautiful!

morrigan :  Hello! I’m a UK bee trying to figure this all out too! I want a moissanite too but prefer the cushion/elongated cushion on my finger. It’s a minefield isn’t it?! I’m finding so many suppliers – harro/zaya/neo/fire and brilliance/zen moissanite etc and just have NO IDEA how to choose the most diamond like!!

I should add, the reason I didn’t go with the Amora is because they are so limited! You might have to wait months for the size you want. Also I’m in Canada so that complicates it more… so I just went with the H&A but would have considered Amora if it were more readily available.

morrigan :  I didn’t even have Amora on my list – more to confuse, great – thanks!! Ha!
I think, realistically, when I get whatever I get I won’t even be able to tell the difference between the moissanite and diamond regardless but when the different options are so heavily debated on here it is so easy to be sucked and and be as critical and indecisive! 
My SO literally wants me to choose the exact ring and tell him how to order it haha! I don’t blame him if this is how much it’s confusing and stressing me out then I can only imagine how tough it would be for him. 
After more deliberation and research this afternoon I thiiiink I am torn between the elongated OMC cushion from Zen Moissanite and the crushed ice Harro “pillow” – difference in price is literally £5 – with MoissaniteCo making the band and setting the stone. My other option, of course, is just having MoissaniteCo make the whole thing and taking one of their stones. Ugh this is so hard! Such first world problems.
