SoNLoveWithHim:  hi!, to start off-both are lovely stones! In my eyes you cant go wrong with either one. Sorry if that’s not helping matters. I kinda like the FB maybe just a smidge more but it’s probably like 1-2 grades of color difference? This is really your call. It’s hard to tell with them that close in color! In OECs, depends on how warm you like them personally. I just got a OEC diamond and I preferred the buttery warmth over the more icy white. This is how most of them are tradionally. mine is I/J grading and I see tint but it doesn’t bother me. I had the choice between that and a K/L stone and that one was far too brownish to my liking. Again they are just very similar and if you like the FB as your Fiance does then go that route. Also what color is your metal going to be? That could play a part too just FYI. Goodluck deciding and whatever you choose will be wonderful! 😊

(ps-here is a shot of mine looking the most yellow before it was set into my rose gold setting)

SoNLoveWithHim:  I don’t think it would affect it more than yellow gold or rose. Those 2 will bring out the warmness. I think the WG will look great in contrast with the unenhanced, especially since you like the sparkle so much in that particular stone they sent you. Go with your gut tho,your the one who is going to be wearing it 🙂

Both are gorgeous stones!  I like the color of the FB better but I also like how the culet is slightly larger on the unenhanced stone. Since color seems to be important to your SO, then I’d go with the FB. You really can’t go wrong with either both are beautiful!

They are both beautiful. I would personally pick the unenhanced, because the difference seems slight and I would choose the more sparkly stone over a slight color perception. That being said, warmth does not deter me from a stone. My OEC diamond is M color, so I like that antiquey warmth a lot.

I also have a FB 8mm OEC (left) and it doesn’t look too different in color beside an unenhanced from the side where you are most likely to see the tint. Here is a pic of both set in white gold heads against a white background if it helps:

SO EXCITED. For you!! I aver had classic and forever brilliant stones and there is only a slight difference in color. But I am SO hooked on the FB’s I just can’t stop myself. Moissaniteco is amazing to work with, Chris gets it right every time for me. 

Cant wait to see the new ring!!!
