sammy18 :  the only place I know of that is selling FB oec moissanite is moissaniteco. The oec Amora gems are out of stock everywhere. Honestly I think the FB oec looks more diamond like than the Amoras do. Having some warmth in an old cut stone makes it look much more authentic than if it were Colorless since real old cut diamonds were mostly lower color grades. I also wanted to mention that the FB oec will not be an H color, more like a J or K color. But like I said I think they look better in those color ranges. If your dead set on going Colorless then maybe look into the Oec Harro gem

I agree with PP, old cuts in warmer tones are just so pretty. But the Harro gem looks interesting! If it were me, I would purchase a C&C stone now in case. I have one in my ering and I love it. I recommend MoissaniteCo. I wish more vendors would offer old cuts!

What about an ACC? Joseph Schubach Jewelers has amazing antique cushion cut moissanites that have the same beautiful chunky facets as an OEC. I bought a Champagne one from them and it is so sparkly and perfect!

JuliaB jewelry on Etsy can do custom old cut mossanite (ACC and OEC). I believe I’ve seen Neo Moissanite in ACC. Schubach’s has some ACCs and there’s a jeweler on instagram that has them too… I’m blanking, anyone know?

I got my oec from moissaniterus on eBay. They have some sizes in stock. I think there was a bee who got an India eBay oec but I can’t remember her name. 

Jyb jewels on Etsy. Fire and brilliance.

sammy18 :  I like JYB Jewels OEC the best! I think she has the best prices also. I just bought one of her ACC’s and I love it.

sammy18 :  I have a 6.5mm fb oec moissanite in my engagement ring. I am philosophically opposed to the diamond industry for several reasons, and I knew I wanted an oec moissanite in my engagement ring.

Point being, I was afraid they would be hard to find and I pulled the trigger and bought one in January. I’m so glad I did. I got one at a reasonable price from Fire and Brilliance. I sat on it for a while, gave it to my fiance in May, and he pulled it out when we went ring shopping about a month ago.

Long story short: I got one and now I have the exact engagement ring I wanted:)

sammy18 :  Thanks! I’m excited for you…congratulations! I love the elongated ACC’s. If I were a woman I’d wear the JYB Farrah! Have you decided if you want an elongated culet or a round culet? Read my thread on culet size if you haven’t. I can’t believe what a difference it can make in the optics of the stone.
