hm2012 :  I dropped off my ring today to make the swap. It will be about a week before I get it back. I emailed Cherry yesterday because one of the jewelers I took it to was concerned that the oec was cut too shallow. (It did test as a diamond though.) Depending on the angle of the stone, the flower in the center is very dark and the girdle is thin.

Cherry said it is normal and most people like it that way. I’ve never seen one in person, and the pics I have seen on Instagram don’t look this way.

However, the jeweler I went to today said the OEC is beautiful and looked great from the inside. He spent so much time looking at it that I thought something was wrong. Then he called someone else over for a second opinion and I became really nervous, lol. But they were just admiring the double refraction. He said it’s amazing to look inside of a moissanite.

It’s funny because the two jewelers who used the diamond tester said it was a diamond and moved on to check the ring prongs. The jewelers that looked at it through the loupe knew exactly what it was without needing to test it. And I feel like they appreciated it more because of its uniquesness

hm2012 :  This is a lovely ring. It could be my eyes, is the ring a little ifferent on the right compared to the left? The right band raising to the shank looks a little bent to me. I’m consierig getting my enagement ring done via one of the Chinese vendors but still hesitant.

hm2012 :  hi!! I’m not sure if this has been answered but how long does it usually take for CAD and how long does production take? I know the custom size ACC takes up to 10 days per Grace says .. I feel like this will be a long wait total. Haha I’m just impatient

j_bishae :  Just like the arrows on your H&A being dark in certain lighting, same will be for the OEC. You can see the OEC’s arrows/pedals have the same darkness shade as your H&A’s arrows in different lighting. Their OEC’s pedals are just thicker/fatter so you notice the darkness of it more. You don’t see the darkness in all their videos because of the better lighting they’re shooting it in. I went through 3 OECs before I found one that was just right for me. It all comes down to how you like it ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the flowers pattern and chunkiness of an OEC. But I’ll also always love a good H&A. 

cicix3 :  CAD can take from 1-3 days depending on how busy they are and on your design. When you do revision on it, it will take a day or 2. Once it goes into production it takes about 10 business days (so about 2 weeks) before it gets completed. With DHL shipping, it can get to you in 3-4 business days.

theonlywayisorange :  Wow!  That looks gorgeous and unique. I have seen a large bezel 5 stone but not an eternity like this.  .

hm2012 :  I spoke to Grace and she says they can do it, no problem. The upcharge is $40 and while part of me is like “Do you want it that badly?” the other part is saying “You spend that much on Uber Eats on a Thursday night. No big deal.” I think I’m gonna go for it. If it’s done properly it’ll be spectacular.

hm2012 :  does anyone know if SG uses Forever Brilliant or Forever One stones? or are they a completely different thing? I asked Grace but I think that question got lost in my other ones! lol. 

Im just curious about all the specifics of my stone ๐Ÿ™‚

These are both Charles and Colvard brand names, so they sell neither as such.

their rough is equivalent to forever one.
