I love white stones, so I definitely prefer the Forever One!  The one I received was gorgeous!  It was colorless and had a ton of sparkle, but not so much that it looked odd.  I love it!

I went to a local jewelry store to see the forever one and found it to have a bluish steely grey appearance that I didn’t like. I guess I figured out that I like some slight warmth in my stone and I ended up getting a forever brilliant instead. It’s still very very white but it has just a bit more warmth to not appear steely grey/glassy like the F1 that I saw appeared. πŸ™‚ This is my ring! White in most lights and has a slight warmth occasionally which I have found that I really love. πŸ™‚ Even in my yellow tinted bathroom, it appears white! πŸ™‚

I went Forever One because my original diamond is F colour and I also have a RHR with a J or so coloured diamond and I really see the difference between the two. But if I didn’t have the two rings to compare already I bet I’d have gone FB because of the cost savings.

I would only pay for the upgrade to forever one of it wont hurt your budget and you have a setting or cut that will show color more–some are worse than others. My ring is a halo with a round brilliant cut center stone so near colorless is fine. My FH bought it in the wrong size and the pave meant we had to return and buy another for a smaller size. I had the opportunity then to upgrade, and it just wasn’t worth it to me. I can’t see any color. 

Also note that Charles and Colvard recommends FB if you are going to have moissanite side stones because you can’t get the really small ones in F1 and it won’t look right. So that might be an issue, too, depending on your design.

bklat:  It depends on what you personally will want to see when you look down.  Do you want to see all the colors of the rainbow? Or do you want it to look more monotone? Every f1 that I have seen is WHITE.. like the brightest clear colorless stone lock stock and barrel. 

I have a 4ct FB center stone, and after seeing what the F1’s look like after they came out, I was thankful for the FB.  I love my color-but I will preface all of that with this-FB’s get “moody”.  They can look like gray or yellow in certain lighting-which isn’t a bad thing it’s not like people are going to stare and tell you that your ring is dull, it’s never dull.

Hopefully that information will help you decide.  Good luck πŸ™‚

I had a FB and it was way yellow.

I’m using F1 for my engagement ring. Both are beautiful and sparkly though.

I do prefer F1, it’s crisp and colorless (DEF). It looks very diamond-like in my opinion.

Here’s a video comparison from a jeweler:

This thread is making me confused. I have a .5ct FB round brilliant in a halo setting and, while I love the sparkles, the occasional greyness of the stone bothers me. I’m upgrading to a 1ct oval solitaire soon and was planning on a F1 stone, but now I’m wondering if I’ll lose the brilliant rainbow flashes of my FB. Argh, how to decide?

therattlebag:  the F1 stones that I saw were certainly not as brilliant as the FB stones :/ I much prefer some slight color but more brilliance. I know the stats say they’re the same brilliance, but in real life, it didn’t look that way to me. πŸ™

therattlebag:  My F1 is full of rainbow flashes! Not to worry there! It’s like a disco ball (as others have aptly described).

Does the forever one show less rainbow colors than the FB? or is it the same?
