AwkwardCoconut :  yeah I was thinking the same thing and something about the color of the AGs arrows seem off too? Maybe because it was a chunkier cut? I remember when I saw the ultra in person I didn’t like something about the cut though. It was almost too perfect? But not in a good way hahah it seemed like the faucets throughout the whole stone were so pronounced it didn’t look right to my eyes (I’m sure that’s just a preference though) I’d like to see the Soaring Hearts next to the H&A moissanite! But it does feel like the moissanite has more depth maybe? The AG looks almost blue next to it

sparklesauce :  My jeweller got back to me and said he recently got to see the H&A as well. He confirms the lovely diamond like sparkle:) He’s also a fan of the Forever One though. Arghhh. Decisions, decisions.

kayteebee :  It depends what you want out of your stone. I know the H&A isn’t technically as sparkly as the F1…but it sparkles so much that I don’t think I am missing anything. The cut was super important to me. You will make the right decision! Good luck!

MissML01 :  I have one crappy phone video I took in the car. It doesn’t do it much justice, but I guess I can upload it anyways. The stone is soooo sparkly in real life. The best lighting is restaurant lighting (it flashes like it is no ones buisness) and the second best is like moving car lighting when the sun just peeks in the window randomly.

sparklesauce :  Thanks! Yeah, I think you are totally right in that it depends on what is most important to you.  Sounds like H&A is the way to go if cut is the number one priority and maybe F1 if rainbow sparkles are more important.  The style of the ring could also be a factor, come to think of it. H&A could well be a good choice for settings like the halo where you have diamonds beside your main stone. I think I want both now hahaha.

I have had a couple AGs in my hands and while I liked the chunkier cut (more akin to a transitional) I was not taken with the performance of the stones and kept neither. I have yet to see a Soaring Hearts in person though. I also really, really dislike the traditional Round Brilliant moissanite cut and the F1 cut. All the moissanites I kept in past were OECs.

I was therefore very leery about getting the H&As, especially as they were not even released yet, so there were NO reviews, no photos, no info at all! But MoCo was great at working with me and I was quite blown away when I received the ring. The patterning is very pretty, and they have a higher crown – I really do not like the flatter crown of F1s and especially Round Brilliant moissanites. I find the H&As very sparkly, and quite comparable to my diamonds in performance (I even often wear them at same time) so the fact they may be a little less sparkly than the F1 or Round Brilliant moissanite cuts is not a downside for me.

First time posting- long time lurker!

I too have been going back and forth between the F1 and colorless H&A. I came across this comparison video of the F1 and H&A today in another forum and thought I’d share it here. (F1 on the left, H&A on the right)

What do you all think? I’m still having a hard time deciding- any other input and pictures/videos would be appreciated!
