I am curious about these new stones as well. Many of the photos of them the facets look kind of…mushy? But, in truth, I’m more interested in the antique or more traditional larger facet patterns.

As an aside, I have a “crushed ice” cushion diamond and honestly, no, the light doesn’t move within it like it would with a more clear facet pattern (round, etc.). It has more general sparkle but I find that when it gets dirty (quickly) it goes fairly flat and doesn’t give the light play like I would like.

The rainbow sparkle in this stone is nowhere near as intense as other moissanite so this may be a plus to some. It mostly has white sparkle with a little bit of rainbow sparkle. As far as the crushed ice sparkle is concerned, light does move through out the center. The sparkles are much smaller due to the tiny facets that create the crushed ice look, with slightly larger flashes on the outer edges where the facets become bigger. If you look at a great quality cushion modified brilliant diamond with little to no light leakage that has the crushed ice look you will notice that they do this as well. The center is still very lively in this stone! It’s seriously by far the most diamond like moissanite I’ve seen so far. I’m hoping there will be a sunny day here soon so I can post a video for you guys showing how it performs!

I agree with bellabee. The rainbow sparkle is very subtle in the crushed ice Ovals. It’s a gorgeous stone! I received mine yesterday.

bellabee16 :  Very pretty and I love the width of the bands you chose. Wondering… Would you recommend the jeweler and would you use them again? Was it an etsy jeweler?  Thanks!
