In my opinion the harro gem is the most diamond like moissanite I’ve seen yet. I use to have one of the hearts and arrows cuts from moissaniteco and although beautiful, it still has a ton of rainbow sparkle and was so extremely white that it almost looked like it was glowing, so this would come in second as far as diamond like goes but in the near Colorless instead. I now have an oval harro gem and it looks and performs a lot like a diamond. Their other cuts appear to be just as good in their instagram videos! 

Heres my 9×6 oval harro gem 

and here’s the 2 carat Colorless hearts and arrows I had for comparison sake

I also wanted to add that the hearts and arrows in the photo above was reflecting my pink sweater, so that’s why it has a pinkish tone

What shape are you looking for? Different brands have certain cuts that they excel at and other ones just suck.

So I honestly think if you want the stone to look like a diamond get a diamond. None of these alternatives are diamonds and they perform, look, sparkle differently. You have to accept moissanite for what it is it’s moissanite then you won’t be dissatisfied.

You should order a couple to compare. CC and harro are great but there’s also NEO and I forgot the other one ..check out Jhollywooddesigns on etsy or Instagram she does a lot of comparisons and can point you in the right direction.

Jhollywooddesigns also has a moissanite line called Zaya. That’s her line I believe.

Hi bees,

 

Starting this thread up againa as I’m looking to buy a larger OMC moissanite and wanted to know if anyone has one, or has an opinion on which type/brandis the best in this cut? The options are a little overwhelming!

I am looking at getting either a 9mm or 10mm (haven’t yet decided if symmetrical or elongated).

 

Thanks!

tee91 :  You should check out Joseph Schubach Jewelers, they have a line of moissanite called “radiance” with some stunning old cuts. I don’t have one, I just love looking at them on insta!
