laylabee:  I use to have a forever brilliant 7.5mm oec moissanite, most of the time it was a beautiful off white color, but sometimes it had a bit of warmth. The warmth in them is actually very beautiful and complimentary to the antique cut. There was never any green or funky colors though

I have a 1.25ct OEC FB moissy and I love it. It does occasionally show a little bit of warmth mostly when its slightly overcast. It will also reflect the colors around it. So if you are sitting under a shady tree chances are it will be reflecting a bit of green. Its a non issue for me though, I love the way my OEC looks 95% of the time. It definently gives you a different look than the more splintery modern cuts. 

 

 

I wear a size 5 for reference

laylabee:  love the old cuts. I have an OMC diamond and it’s round but cushion. best of both worlds like you say. very pillowly with its high crown. If you like the chunky facets then I don’t think you’ll regret an old cut.

laylabee:  I don’t have a forever brilliant, but here’s my unenhanced 7mm OEC moissy just to give you an idea. For the most part, she’s white, but does give off some warmth, which I love! I have yet to notice any green…

laylabee:  I recently added an 8mm OEC FB to my collection. I LOVE it! Here is a quick snap of it, I need to get it sized. It does not appear yellow or greenish. It’s really pretty. If you want an OEC I would scoop one up, they’ve been discontinued.

laylabee:  Yes, definitely try to get it sooner than later! It’s a bummer that they discontinued this cut b/c it is my favorite one and I know a lot of vintage lovers are attracted to the chunky facets and pastel fire. I also have an unenhanced 7.5mm OEC which is equally as beautiful to me as the FB. There isn’t a real big color difference in most lighting. It’s a pinch warmer, but it’s also set in yellow gold. Here’s that one for comparison’s sake:

I too love my 8mm FB OEC. Have had a couple and the faceting is really gorgeous if Chunky facets are what you love.
