I love my fb oec. If you think the color will bother you go with the fb oec. I can only see a tint to it in the car on cloudy days. Imagine lots of chunky pastel sparkle. 

Heres a video of a oec moissanite next to a oec diamond. There’s a ton of videos on YouTube

heres mine looking warm

bklyn18 :  I am personally in love with my two FB OECs. I think they can be set into the halo like you desire! David klass, or another jeweler, can get melee in a lower color if you’re concerned about color matching. I wear my OECs with a baguette band that is very white and I barely notice the color difference. I realllly have to look for it! 

May I ask…the soaring hearts isn’t not for you? I have thought about one but love chunky faceting.

bklyn18 :  I think an OEC will look great in that sort of halo setting! I second going with David Klass, even better that you can go there in person! I would love to be able to do that! (He did one of my rings and I can’t recommend him more highly).

I have both an OEC diamond & a moissy. I love the chunky pastel flashes of the cut. Here are a couple pics:

I use to have a forever brilliant oec moissanite. out of the many rings I’ve had over the last few years, that’s the ring I miss the most. They are such an amazing stone with so much personality!! I think it would look absolutely stunning in a halo setting!

bklyn18 :  Thanks! I love both stones. The diamond has a crisper sparkle with more white light return, though it is extremely firey. The moissanite has more of a rainbowy effect in certain lighting conditions. Like in Target it is very unicorn-magic-rainbowy, lol. I don’t know how else to describe it, but it is pretty for sure. The diamond is flashier with alternating white light/colored fire. The diamond has better luster. I’ve analyzed them to death though b/c I collect gems and crystals as a hobby. My aunt and uncle looked at both without knowing which was which and only 1 guessed right, so the moissy passed as a diamond. I’ve also had a jeweler think the moissy was a diamond and I had to correct them.

bklyn18 :  ahhh I typed a reply earlier with my photo but I’m not sure where it went.  I purchased an oec moissanite from another lovely bee for a right hand ring, and David Klass made the setting.  I haven’t seen the stone or ring yet, so I’m actually no real help to you – but I wanted to say that David Klass was great to work with, and I think an oec would look very nice in a halo 🙂

I’m using David Klass for my custom ering, but I live on the east coast, I think I’m going to get a loose OEC forever brilliant moissanite (1-1.5 carats, probably 1.25) from Schubach’s. Can anyone give me some rec’s for what I should ask for when they pick out my stone? I keep seeing terms like culets but I’m not very familiar with what’s the best for OEC stones. Thank you!
