Sitori :  You can see double refraction through the face of the stone.  You are not supposed to see doubling of the facets like that unless they didn’t orientate the crystal correctly.  Oh boy.

msdenise123 :  oh no really???? I’ll ask which vendor he got it from. That’s no good then. Does that happen with all cuts or it could have just been one stone that way?

Sitori :  It can happen whenever the vendor doesn’t know what they are doing. 

A quick search on instagram brought up this

look at the facets in the middle of the harro.  Notice how they look blurry?  Look closer.  They are doubling. 

How Harro is seen as a premium source and command the price they do is amazing.  You would be better off to go to Alibaba and look up Moissanite vendors and buy direct from China.  That is what Harro is doing, but at least you won’t pay a monstrous markup on top.

msdenise123 :  yes I definitely notice. Well I was originally going to get the H&A from C&C lol. That’s funny. After seeing the ACC I ended up liking that cut better.  Waaahhh 😭 Now I don’t know what to do. 

I specifically asked the jeweler which he recommends since he works with all the vendors and he said Harro for sure for ACC and then he said NEO for round cut. When I had talked to chris from moissyco he said C&C was the original and far superior than any others. So UGGHHHH I do not knowwwwwww this is driving me mad! I’m going to end up going back to the original round cut watch lol. Just bc I’m so over this.

michellelynn9175 :  yes I hate the F1. I don’t like how flat the crown is and I don’t like how fiery it is. The H&A has a higher crown(cut more like diamond) and had less fire than the F1. 

I know Neo has the “diamond cut” round now. Michael said it’s amazing. Maybe the newer cuts look better idk. I really wish there was an actual moissanite store to go see every single cut and company. There should be one in every city really ! 

  I think the bottom line is the C&C are just cut so crisp compared to every other cut I’ve seen. I still really love the H&A and if I can’t choose something with the ACC I’m just going to have to stay with it. I would say to ask whoever is setting the stone to check it and see if it’s properly cut but then how much can you trust them? Michael says Harro makes the best ACC but then others don’t agree. Soooo who do you trust then? 

I also loved the glittery look of the crushed ice but then like you said, you have to worry about it looking plastic or whiting out or not moving at all. If everything depends on possibly getting a good cut or not, that’s just risky. I know for sure C&C H&A are ALL excellent cuts. I don’t know if I want to risk possibly getting a bad cut. I suppose ordering one to your house would be the best idea, although I don’t even know how much I would be able to tell without a jeweler assisting me. Would I be able to tell if my ACC had double refraction ? Who knows. I know that I would be able to tell if color was off that’s for sure. Maybe we are just over analyzing this stuff lol. I don’t think we’re going to be having people analyzing our stones while they are glancing at our rings. lol. 

I just have the issue of being incredibly indecisive. I’ve seen ALLLLL the stores on Etsy, all the vendors all the companies. Everything. I have see them all. Thousands of videos on IG and YouTube. You can’t name one I haven’t seen lol. Yes I’ve watched ALL his videos from F&B. 

I literally just need to stop and choose and shut up πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
