So I have a newly-cut diamond OEC – it’s an AVR diamond from GoodOldGold.

I recently bought an AVR moissanite from them as well, and here are a few comparison pics. The diamond is on the bottom with rounder facets under the table.

I’m a ring size 3.75, and these are both 8mm stones, I/VS

duchessgummybunns :  Oh wow, they’re both beautiful! Your AVR diamond has been one of my ring crushes for a while. Is that the Amora gem from BTD or the moissy from the augustvintageinc site? How do they compare in real life?

Mrs.Bill :   jbear310 :  Thank you both for the sweet compliments!

jbear310 :  That’s kind of you to say! I believe you can order through either site – they have a partnership where both sites can sell the stones – but you may get faster response and a stone in your hands more quickly if you go through the AugustVintage site. Jon is really responsive on the augustvintage instagram account, too.

Honestly, the comparison is apples to apples! I have a ton of videos I can post here if you’re interested?

The only techincal difference between them is the double refraction of the moissy, but you can only really see the double refraction when looking down (closely) into the stone through the crown facets, and no one’s going to be staring that hard, at that angle at your stone!

The moissy also gives off the rainbow “sparkle” reflections that the diamond doesn’t.

And obviously, THIS moissy of mine is beautifully cut. Fiance and I joke that we wish my diamond had THIS faceting, b/c it is my IDEAL faceting for an OEC. However, I have grown accustomed to, and love, the more bubbly inner facets of my diamond and don’t think I’d trade if I could. But I AM happy to have the two different types of OEC faceting represented in my stones!

We are waiting til after we get back from our honeymoon to set it, but I’m thinking of ordering two smaller stones and creating a 3-stone ring, which I have always wanted!

duchessgummybunns :  Oh if you wouldn’t mind posting the videos I would LOVE to see some! I am curious to see how the scintillation compares between the two. Plus I cannot make up my mind between an AVR, AVC, or genuine old cut cushion diamond…they’re just all so beautiful! So the moissy price helps me possibly get one of each down the line…hehe. 

By the way, please also post a picture when your ring is completed! The 3 stone setting with a larger center and two small side stones (almost accent stones) is actually one of my favorite designs but I have yet to see one with an OEC center.  

Have a wonderful honeymoon!

Well, actually, this is my inspiration ring, made with AVR’s: 

https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/gog-custom-cut-avr-trio-in-vatche-royal-crown.227341/

The only problem is, the poster’s ring size is a 5, and I’m only a 3.75, so I’d likely need to go all the way down to ~.3-.4 for my side stones, and I think that might not look nice proportion-wise. 

I may need to try to sell my 8mm stone and get a 7mm instead to keep the proportions right and still fit my finger. :/ I’ll see what a CAD looks like with the 8mm and go from there. 

Videos to come!
