    What's the difference between C&C F1 moissanites vs C&C F1 H&A moissanites? Did they just release the H&A F1 moissanites recently?

    The difference is in the cut shape. Regular F1 is cut to maximize sparkle, fire and brilliance because it surpasses diamond in those regards. Light bends stronger in moissanite than it does diamond. Hearts and arrows H&A cuts look more like a diamond in the facet geometry as well as optical performance.

    Some people don't like the regular moissanite cut because it's "Too sparkly". I think that a silly opinion because isn't that what it's all about, the sparkles?

    Others dislike the regular F1 cut because it has flatter proportions. The height is proportionally shorter to its width than diamond by a noticeable amount with a large table facet. Some people don't like that including myself. Up close, if you know the difference it's apparent. From 2 feet away, you will never know.
