    Hi all,
    As noted, we purchased 8 different Forever One Moissanites - mostly to investigate the now-proven-false claim that both had 58 facets. Both H&A and Regular are 57 facets, in contrast to what was claimed.

    Regardless, we followed the same procedure with both types of Forever Ones - 3D scan in the OGI HD system, and then the Sarin HD system. The Sarin 3D Model was then loaded into DiamCalc Pro for analysis.

    AGS cut grade - 0 is Best, 10 is worst. The Forever One Moissanite H&A is a 4 under the AGS grading system.

    For reference, MoissaniteCo.com claims they are AGS-0, and 58 facets, which appear to be false advertising. They are AGS-4, not AGS-0, and 57 facets, not 58:

    Profile view - model auto-adds faceting to girdle, which does not exist on ForeverOnes...but girdle contours are otherwise exact:

    And now in Office lighting. The darker center is from a high amount of internal reflection due to the cut proportions Forever One used:
