    I love my Forever Brilliant OEC! It’s a C&C that I bought from Schubach. I had my heart set on an OEC too, since I wanted to replicate a vintage setting from 1915. I don’t know much about the Amora or the others you mentioned, but I looked at Forever One and while it might be whiter, I don’t think it’s available in the OEC and that was more important to me.

    bellabee16 :  Hey guys!! So yours is the moissanite co forever one hearts and arrow? it isnt the one from C & C right? I belive the only difference is one comes with the lab cert. that is $100 more right? or am I completely crazy . LOL this is so hard but you have exactly what I want I just dont know if I know what I’m talking about or not. I’ve talked with Chris at MoissaniteCo but Im still a little confused. Like what I want on there website now says “round H&A F1 D-F and then whatever size i want…. is this what you got? or did you also get the cert. too?

    dniiiicole : MoCo just started offering the C&C F1 H&A in 2017. I think anyone who purchased H&A stones prior have the MoCo branded H&A, which, fyi, is not F1 because it’s not made by C&C. I’m not sure how the ordering process is now if you want the MoCo branded H&A. I would assume that the process is the same where you have to add the $100 certificate because the price of the C&C F1 H&A is the same as the F1 Round Brilliant cuts that they used to offer.

    DonutGirl33 :  What do you think about the non C&C H&A… I am just so torn! Would you want to have the lab certificate or is that something to even worry about? Im thinking of it like… im paying $100 more for a piece of paper to tell me what I already know” or am I think of it the wrong way. (I value your opinion because you seem so knowledagebl about this… ive saw your post on numerous threads and Just want to ask your opinion 🙂

    dniiiicole :  Honestly, I don’t know 🙁 I didn’t have a choice so it’s hard to say what I would have done. I do like knowing the stats personally, but I don’t think it’s a must.

    I wish they had a new video comparing them. If I were you I’d ask for one before deciding.

    One thought I did have, is that MoCo says in the product description that the original supplier couldn’t keep up with the demand and C&C has a history of poor cuts including the last F1 H&A, so what if they’re cutting too quickly? I would want some kind of guarantee you won’t have that black dot issue.
