I have an OEC moissanite.  It defnitely sparkles, though differently from a brilliant cut stone.  I love it!

Basically it’s a difference of whether you like glittery sparkle or more rainbowy flashes.

@Creiddylad:  Oh, sorry, completely spaced typing anything! *yeesh*

The smaller set stones are a pair of round brilliant earrings, un-enhanced, 5.5mm each.

The larger unset stone is a 7.73×7.68mm Amora OEC moissanite. (Well, okay, it’s set in the second to last  picture!)

I really love my OEC, it’s very bright and has wonderful color play, I get so many compliments on it everywhere I go. The sparkle is lovely to my eye, with bold flashes of white and rainbow color.

You are most welcome! I can definitely say that neither cut is really sparklier than another, but they sparkle different, if that makes sense? It depends on what you like, bold and chunky which means fewer flashes, or a constant glitter with every slight movement of your hand. ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to see what you decide on!
