I had one and I chose it because I felt that moissanite looked best in the old cuts. I’m kinda sad I sold it.

I have both – started with an OEC moissanite and upgraded to my forever diamond for our 5th year anniversary.

The pic on the left the diamond is set in the ring, the pic on the right the moissanite is set. They are very similar! I would say the fire is almost identical, but due to the moissanite having higher clarity and an ideal cut, it’s probably just slightly more sparkly than the diamond. The double refraction of the moissanite makes it look a little fuzzy if I really stare at it, and my diamond looks a little more crisp. The moissanite was moodier, and unfortunately, it had a hard to remove oxidation stain. If it wasn’t for the stain I would probably have been happy with it for a long time. But, I always coveted a diamond for my wedding set and feel like it’s more “mind clean” when someone asks about my ring.

My 7mm OEC, I love the chunky light flashes and IMO this cut looks more realistic than the brilliant round but that’s a personal preference.

I choose my OEC moissy. I think I should have gone for more chunky facets and maybe not so white if I was doing it again. (just ’cause I prefer a creamier colored stone and an old timey look) 

Here’s mine:FullSizeRender

Mine is closer to an transitional cut than an OEC, but I love the chunky facet patterns! It’s an heirloom diamond, about half a carat.
