    I really love OECs. I think it’s just a matter of preference. If you love them, why not get it?

    You can always order a loose OEC and send it back if you don’t like it.  I have Ring Bearer earrings and an OEC necklace, and they’re both really pretty.  If I had your setting, I’d probably put an OEC in it, but either would look good.

    OEC for me! They have so much more personality than RBs.

    I have both, Ring Bearer in my studs and an OEC on my finger, and I have to say I love the flashes of the OEC so much more and I want to get OEC studs to “match” my ring.

    Ever since that bee with the 3ct equivalent OEC posted pictures of hers, I am officially on Team OEC.

    I would pick an OEC, hands down.  But they are  a lot warmer, so you will see a contrast with the melee in your curent ring.

    I have a Ring Bearer

    And it’s lovely. But the OECs have more character and are more old-fashioned as opposed to modern. They are, however, a lot warmer. My Ring Bearer sparkles like crazy and I’m glad I went with that. 🙂

    If you’re having trouble deciding, you could order an OEC cz.  I’ve gotten some from here; light champagne would probably be closest to moissy color.  When I’ve ordered from him, it’s taken about a week to receive the stones.  It won’t have the same properties as moissy, but at least it will give you an idea of OEC faceting and light play.

    I love OECs, especially in moissy, and hope to have a band with them someday.  But for what it’s worth, as much as I love OECs, I think a round brilliant would work well in that setting because of the modern looking pave.  I don’t think you could go wrong with either one, though!

    OEC for me! 🙂 Love the chunky flashes of color. I requested this for my ring, so now I’m just waiting for the proposal!

    I voted OEC because I found the light play with that cut is amazeballs, lol! I own Ring Bearer moissy and an OEC, and now I want to get OEC earrings to match my ring. Here’s a close up of the cut for you to look at:

    And OEC vs. Ring Bearer:
