They look quite white, I wonder if that is the lighting or if they really are that white. I'm guessing they have not been enhanced.

These are unenhanced. Beth said they were similar to an RB. The colour didn't stand out to her. She was blown away by the cut though wink

lol, I was like that with the peachy pink videos! They look so beautiful! You can see a little warmth if you look at the edges of the table, but the warmth seems fitting for an antique cut. I would love to see them on the hand though too. smile

what?!??? HOW on earth did I miss that Schubach's was getting OECs cut too? I've been waiting around to hear that AD got the cutting done with CC.

These are AMAZING looking! I can't wait to see the projects that come out of these!

eh thats fine with me as long as I can order one... someday, and by someday i mean if I'm not engaged this time next year, which I'm sure I won't be, I'll order one myself. I always have to do everything myself... /sigh. at least I get what I want that way.

Jcent, I apologize, but I have to ask. Do you work for Schubach? You seem to always be on top of their latest offerings, plans, etc. I know you are a customer of theirs, but if you have an arrangement with them, it is the forum rules that it be disclosed. You seem to be in pretty close contact with them, much more than a normal customer.

sarabara, the patent is only an issue for others to cut moissanite. C&C cut these.

I just wanted to add that the custom design process is quite involved, so connections are often made.

I'm so terribly sorry for being slow and behind - but what makes these different from the usual RB cuts we see? Why are there limited amounts of them? They look a little washed out, but I'm sure it's just the lighting.

Jcent, since you have the inside scoop with Schubach, lol, find out what setup they use for their videos - going into the gloomy months here in Seattle and I have been trying for ages to get a good indoor setup for our photo shoots, but haven't gotten it right yet!

oec, or old European cut has larger facets and cutlet, (kinda looks like a black hole) in the middle of the stone.

I really really don't mean to be rude, but OEC's aren't chicken, they don't have a cutlet! They do however have a culet smile

Sorry I'm anal retentive sometimes .... sigh.

Had to come back for another look. Those are just beautiful.

One of these will likely be my upgrade - not that I need an upgrade from Abigail! I love her. It's just, I've lost like 80 pounds... I have a few more to go, then I need all new rings. laugh My rings don't fit... and I seriously doubt that the Abigail set can be sized from a size 8 to a size 6 (or smaller, if my fingers decide to get smaller)... what with the 1/2 shank of shared prong stones and all. So... I look at them in their pretty ring box everyday, but I'm ringless again until I get a new set!

I'm going to wait until Mike_C announces they've got these OECs though. I bet he could arrange to have them Mira-ized. smile Plus, I've already picked out the moissco setting I want it in. Mira-ized or not.

Now that you say that, they do look different! Does this make them more brilliant, or do they just look different and therefore appeal to collectors/fans of Moissanite?

These can be bought now. You would have to ak if they can enhance them for you, but Schubach's cannot get them Mira-ized. MoCo's could get Mira-ized though. I believe it is $180/ct.

what setting? I can't keep up with you ladies, I hardly can digest how fast things are moving (and improving)...although lately I have taken a liking with prong-less setting like the bezels...how does that look with OEC is the question...

Erica, what do you think of the cut? I know video is hard to tell...


The cut looks beautiful! The culet is on the larger side for an OEC - OEC's would typically have a visible, but smaller culet, and OMC's and Cushions would show the largest culet sizes. But that's about the only thing I can critique about them.

I can say, in looking at the video, that the double refraction isn't at all obvious, but that's never really been easy for me to see/understand anyway. If anyone wants to loan me one, I'd be happy to do a photo shoot alongside a diamond OEC and an Asha OMC.

They look very promising - some of you old timers may recall that WAAAAAYYYY back in the day (several years ago), I had inquired with Michael E about recutting moissanite into an OEC, and researched it and abandoned the idea. Then MoissCo took it to the next level, but there was the color problem. So it's great to see the improvements that have been made.

I'll be very curious about the color in person!

For the sake of comparison, here are some very classic and traditional OEC's. You can see how much the culet size and facet patterns vary. I think C&C did a very nice job on the faceting of the OEC Moissanites:

I'm in downtown Seattle most days (International District) but I live out in Gig Harbor, so I'm available to meet in either location, depending on where you are. That would be fun!

Hi I'm sorry I mostly lurk so just excuse me if any of these questions have been answered already but where can you buy these? Will they only be available in limited quantities? I would love to get a 9mm. Also does this mean that more antique cuts will be available in moissanite? Thanks in advance!

Beth said the colour did not stand out to her, like it does with certain other cuts. If it were me, I might set it in unplated white gold anyway, and I think that wellow would match the warmth of the stone nicely.

Thanks again Jcent, I think for the OEC a little body color makes it look more realistic since many antique cut tends to be warmer anyway...im just curious if it's buttery, or greenish....

Beth is in AZ, so it is good lighting for moissy there. You should wait until Erica from JbEG has an opportunity to see one. She would be an excellent judge, and is in Seattle.

These are stunning & PERFECT for a vintage/antique setting! I guess EXACTLY like Erica, after looking at them several times, the large culet was the only thing that I didn't really like ... But as she said the size of the "hole in the middle" of the older OEC cuts did vary quite a bit! So it's not that they don't look realistic! It's a matter of personal preference ... I LOVE a much smaller culet which allows for MORE chunky facets (one of her wonderful pictures shows this well)! Hmmmmm ... Perhaps if these sell well then they could do with a tiny culet rather than the large one in these! Now THAT would be Da Bomb!!!! Yeah ... Picky ... I KNOW!! LOL!!! But I can't wait to see some hand shots of these and/or in different settings/backgrounds! :-))))))

I talked to Schubachs and it sounds like they did not specify a cut nor provide a diagram --- they had heard via the grapevine, that C&C was cutting OEC's and ordered some. Now why they got theirs first is interesting since Moissco started this whole "movement" based upon their customer's many requests for an OEC Moissanite.

Given that, and of course I can be wrong, my guess is the cut is identical to the cut that Moissco requested which is based upon the BTD Asha OEC. Judging from that isn't the culet the same size as the Asha OEC that everyone loves? Just responding to all the comments that the culet seems large.

Hmmmmm ... I just went back and looked at the video again! YES like that pic poppy ... And very OEC like!! (tho just seems culet is a tad bit bigger to me) Perhaps they did the OEC cut that way (with a large culet) because it shows the brilliance of the moissey the best. I guess when I very first saw the video the thing that stood out to MY eye very first thing was that the culet was large! And I'm sure that's because I simply prefer a tiny culet in an OEC cut! I thought same thing as to Schubach's offering appearing first because I'd read the thread awhile back about Moissco trying to get C&C to do the OEC cut! Hmmmm ... ???

OK I've been trying really hard to take a decent picture of what I'm talking about with the culet appearing much larger to the eye in the OEC moisseys! Here's my OEC diamond approximately 1.25 ct. ... And I zoomed in on it because otherwise you wouldn't be able to even see the tiny hole in the middle ... When looking at it normally it looks like a very tiny pin hole ... Barely noticeable. Makes for more chunky facets look if that makes any sense. With the OEC cut moissey the HOLE just stood out to my eye first thing.

And in that pic you have to look closely because the facets cast shadows ... It's the TINY little black round circle in the middle of the stone.

I wonder how much the moissanite culet will be visible without magnification?

I cannot see the open culet in my OEC diamond without a loupe.

And last one ... I promise! But here's just a pic of the OEC not zoomed in at all, but just taken fairly close to ring. If you look real, real close you can see a tiny round dot in the middle which is hardly noticeable at all. The OEC moissey shows a much larger hole.

Yes the culet is definitely larger in the OEC but I think the photo is magnified, it is on a black background w/ bright lights, I'm thinking it won't be nearly that noticeable in real life without magnification.

PS gorgeous ring, love the French cut sapphires!!!

I don't know if I could live with a culet as large as what it appears in the OEC video!!! Cannot wait to see if Erica gets one and posts comparison pics for all of us!! It just looks BIG in that video! Very much hoping that won't be the case and it won't be so noticeable in real life!! :-)

Don't fear the big culet until you see the stones in person. Like my booty, everything in pictures and video looks bigger than in person (at least, I hope so!)

A large culet is actually very charming and is what causes the beautiful Kozibe effect as the culet facet reflects around an antique stone. That's what contributes to an OMC diamond's quilted look. True, OEC's typically had smaller culets, but the early OEC's (which were transitioning from OMC's) had larger ones. This moissy OEC is very much like a OEC/OMC hybrid and I'm sure the faceting will be lovely in person.

LOLOL, thanks for the kind words! The setting is our "Bella" halo, and is available to order for any center stone smile

Kozibe is the little culet circles reflecting around the stone. In the pics Milady posted above, look for the little circles around the perimeter.

Thank you!It will be quite some time,though,before I get it or even see it..I'm going to have it made this winter/beginning of spring,but I will not get to see it until June,for our anniversary eek I also had to promise my husband it will be the last ering for a looong while (please,note the word "ering"...a girl has to keep her option open somehow grin ),as it will be pretty expensive,being completely custom..We sketched it together,and now I'm starting to see where to have it made..I'll see.I should start by choosing the stone size,though blush
