    shrillerbee:  I prefer oec moissanite over round brilliant moissanite. That ring style is very classic and would look great with either stone.

    Oec. It’s the only cut I prefer for round stones. Other than Portuguese cut, but that’s not offered in moissy. Oec vote here

    OEC for sure. An OEC is always my preference for round cuts, especially moissanite. I don’t like the round brilliant moissanites at all (but I have/have had a few of the OECs).

    Also, to me it suits that setting. That is a very classic vintage-type setting (though with double prongs rather than fishtail prongs) and I always picture an old cut in a setting with baguettes like that.

    OEC Because it seems like a vintage type setting. I have a forever brilliant OEC and I love it. It’s the perfect color. It has warmth but only in certain lighting.

    shrillerbee:  I’m not a huge OEC fan, but I really like @UKbee’s ring and with an OEC yours would be pretty much identical to hers. My only hesitation is that OEC already shows color more than most cuts, and it’s not an F1. Are you ok with this?

    I swear I am the only bee who dislikes the OEC cut. I love the RB. Good luck!

    This will be my ring, too!

    I LOVE the OEC and secretly hope my SO went for it with this setting, but we aren’t engaged quite yet so I have no idea. 

    I’ve seen other bees with this setting (or similar) and I imagine it would look amazing with an OEC.

    It depends on what you like! Do you want something that’s sparkly like a spintery disco ball, or do you want something that gives off big chunky flashes of light?
