    I personally went with the H&A because I like the cut better. It doesn’t have as much fire as the F1, but it is super sparkly. It has more of a diamond like cut. It is breathe taking. I have never seen an F1 in person, but I know I made the right choice.

    Disclaimer: This is just from being a ring board stalker… I dont have either.

    IMO the H&A is much more diamond-like in cut and performance. The F1 has some moissy markers- namely color/moodyness, “over active” fire/sparkle, a distinct cut. It depends on your goal I think… If you want the best diamond sim go for H&A. If you want a dazzling moissy disco ball- F1

    The facets are cut so thin/skinny so as to maximize the brilliance/sparkle in the F1 stone. I had F1 stones for a while and while it had incredible sparkle, the splintery facets and flat crown drove me nuts. From the side, all stones in my 3 stone ring were FLAT. I hated that look.

    I just upgraded my 3 stone ring to H&A at MOCO. Holy moly, these H&A stones are gorgeous. They still have so much sparkle. I don’t even really notice loss of sparkle. It still sparkles more than my diamond did.

    stofkose :  I haven’t seen the near colorless but Raykay has. I prefer white stones and these are definitely whiter than my G color diamonds, noticeably whiter I will say and they have more sparkle.

    A well cut F1 would be  my pick.  they actually still have arrows and they are super sparkly!  But if you are just ordering online and not working with someone to pick a stone, then H&A.  I htink overall they are cut more consistently.  The F1s are not moody though, they are 4H material which is has a stable colour.
