Re-set Advice - please.

#1
I am looking for some advice from those who have had stones reset.
I recently got a lovely 2 piece bridal set from newbielady. I don't know the stats, I'm not sure how many ct's or who it was made by - as she bought it from another member and she herself wasn't sure ... but it is really gorgeous either way. It has a cushion cut, forever brilliant center moissanite (I think around 7.5 mm) .... I'm not usually a huge fan of cushion cuts, but this ring was so pretty I couldn't say no! It has the sweetest details to it, like 2 tiny surprise sapphires, gorgeous double claw prongs and milgraining along the basket of the setting. The ring itself seems like a huge set (again, not sure how many cts) it is a channel set, cathedral ring with matching band - lovely set! ...
I just got my hands on a 7.5 mm OEC unenhanced moissanite - and I am considering swapping the cushion out.

First, a round will fit in a cushion setting, right? It is just a double prong basket head.
Second, would an OEC cut look ok in such a "modern" looking set??
Third, will an unenhanced OEC show a lot more color than the smaller round moissanite in the set? - Will it be a noticeable difference??
And last, can I trust any jeweler to do the swap, or is there someplace I can send it to have it done??
Still trying to decide if I should swap them, or just find something else to do with the OEC, and leave the set alone.
Thank you!!

Staciann if the ring is your avatar setting then that was mine. I had a round brilliant taken out and a new head put in for the cushion by David Klass. You can have the head replaced with one for a round as it is a peg head. Hope that helps. To me though that setting is a bit modern for an OEC but some like the mix of old and new.
