Tell me about NEO moissanite

I have 2 NEOs. An older (2016) 7x7mm near colorless cushion and I have a very recent (2020) 8x6mm colorless oval.

My cushion is quite splintery and a disco ball that throws major rainbows, it’s beautiful. The oval is stunning (no bow tie), it has the most stubble and delicate rainbows, not at all like the cushion.

The cushion was purchased set as my ER (but I have called off the engagement since) but I loved it and had the stone reset as a pendant. The ER had been purchased from jhollywood on Etsy.

I purchased the oval loose to replace a bad center stone in a melee of diamonds. This moissy was also purchased from Jen. As I read about the oval, prior to purchasing, on Etsy they claimed that their NEO were now being cut differently to reduce the rainbows/ disco ball effect. I thought it was just a marketing scheme but when I compared the stones next to each other there is a very noticeable difference. 
This pic shows my cushion compared to princess cut diamonds  

hope this helps

@nous2: I am smitten over your oval ring. Where did you get it/ who designed it?!

@hollymikel08: It looked nothing like that when I purchased it. I am not one to buy rings from chain jewelry stores but I fell in love with this ring, and I couldn’t walk away from it, bought it from Kay in 2019. I loved that it had floral and lace elements. It reminded me of my grandmother’s crochet doilies. Here is what it looked like before I changed the center stone and had it plated in white gold. https://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/from-morganite-in-rose-to-moissy-in-white-ring-make-over/
