    orangeblossomspecial :  

    I just figured out how to reply.

    I think the steely look comes from the setting 

    Because in other pictures it looks completely white ๐Ÿ™‚

    If you want an OEC, get an OEC. Nothing else is going to look the same. Nothing has that rainbow, chunky goodness. I love the culet, but I’m a total old stone lover.  Like MrsCassie, I’m biased. I love my Amora Gem OEC. Good advice above for custom cutting a moissy (Jhollywood and Joseph Schubach). You may also be able to get one commissioned via the TheGemstoneProject (She knows lots of cutters!). 

    JHollywood posted this old cushion which is also lovely. https://www.instagram.com/p/BNpLPMXhGzK/?taken-by=jhollywooddesigns

     

    Here’s a PS thread on the ring you like made by Brilliantly Engaged.

    DonutGirl33 :  haha. It’s in my screenshot! Do you see it? Just blame me when your husband gets annoyed…and tell him you need a “push” present.

    Personally I love the old cuts so I vote OEC. I have a fb oec 8mm and I love it so much! The chunky pastel flashes โค๏ธ

    nfran :  OMG jeez, how the heck did I miss that?!! Oh yes, he owes me x2. And one was a c-section, which I believe is automatically worth more ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    If your heart melts for the OEC, go with that! A modern cut stone won’t satisfy your craving for chunky, pastel flashes. I have a 6.5mm classic C&C from moissy Co. Chris is great to work with and picks nice stones. I think they have some 7.5mm left on their insta. You can also try Oren aka moissaniterus on Ebay. He picks good ones too. My mom got a perfect one from him with an amazing flowery facet pattern.

    I second moissaniterus on eBay. My OEC is from

    them.
