missd2016 :  Interesting!!! Maybe C&C fixed the black dot issue?? 

Forever One is C&C’s brand of 4H SiC, the H&As MoCo has been selling recently are also 4H SiC, but are not procured by C&C, therefore are not Forever One.

Personally while these are pretty they look too sparkly to me, I’m glad I went with the non-F1 option.

Forever One was the name they were using for the colourless DEF coloured moissanite. Forever Brilliant was the name they were using for near colourless moissanite in GHI range. Now C&C has changed the names to Forever One Colourless (DEF), and Forever One Near Colourless (GHI). 

Hearts and Arrows cut is the same cut used for a perfect round diamond. I don’t know the exact dimensions, but they’re treating the moissanite as if it was a diamond with the same cut they would use on a diamond. It’s not the optimal cut for a moissanite – but it’s going to look more like a diamond 

It seems they’re going out of the old optimal moissanite cut because it was too sparkly and people thought it looked too much like a ‘disco ball’. I personally don’t think so – I figure if you should use the optimal cut for each individual gem – but I guess with H&A cut more people will like it because it’s closer in look to a diamond.

They said the same thing about F1 emerald cut (none coming ever!) when my now Fiance ordered my near-colorless non-c&c emerald… And bam, there they are on instagram a few months later. I think they get the news from CC as soon as it comes, but honestly, I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Your stone is just as beautiful, I’m sure! I think the F1 material (that specific type of silicon carbide) can be cut all sorts of ways and that “Forever One” is just a brand name cut specifically by C&C. I love my emerald cut, and if I ever feel like I want an upgrade maybe I’ll order a loose stone and compare, but I don’t see that happening any time soon!

There will always be something bigger and better coming down the line, and you can always upgrade your center stone later if it truly bothers you! For now, love your ring!

I actually emailed them and they said there is no difference between the stones. It’s just going to be C&C’s new “standard” cut instead of the round brilliant. But who knows if that’s honest, I agree the F1 h&a looks a bit sparklier

I’m in the same boat! I sent my ring in though to get the claw prongs I asked for that weren’t done so I asked them to change out my stone too. Interesting that they deleted their instagram posts…

I wonder if the small F1’s used for side stones and bands will also be changed to Hearts and arrows cut. I love the round brilliant F1’s in my band, since their so small you can’t see the splintery flat cut that much. but It would be awesome to have them replaced with the hearts and arrows F1’s to match the cut of my center stone 😍 That is if they’re available in 3mm. The smallest the non brand hearts and arrows come is 4mm or else I would have gotten them.

 They said they would though there is no real difference in the two stones except the c&c warranty card. I think they were willing to swap out the stones because I had purchased my ring so recently and am still in the return period in addition to the fact that they kind of messed up my order in the first place by not making the prongs clawed. I’m now wondering what they will be doing with my ring since from your email they wouldn’t even be able to set the new f1 h&a. I haven’t heard from Chris about my ring since I sent it in. It arrived Monday at their facility so I figured I would give them a few days to get back to me about it. I think the holidays just really bogged them down which is why they are taking a little longer to respond. Completely understandable.

The original C&C H&A’s were discontinued due to the black dot issue. 

So MossCo is admitting they’re selling identical stones that have been known to be faulty. 🙄 

I just don’t want the black dot. Apparently it is “table reflection” but it looks like a cheap stone. And it isn’t. 

 

Surely C&C wouldn’t release a second round of the same stone, considering it had to be discontinued the first time. So that would mean the stones my MossCo & the new H&A’s would be different?
