Cut/Color/Size Guide

 

Astro Cut or H & A cut? GHI or DEF? Stone size? A Detail guide for first timer

 

COLOR


For color, DovEggs use F-G in GHI and D in DEF, so you will not able to see any obvious yellowish in either color option,


It is more of a personal preference from the customer feedbacks as we found from customer feedback, but GHI does become more popular because our higher quality standard on color and it is more cost friendly.

 


Stone size


It is always difficult to find the right size. However, we do have some suggestions for you on choosing the perfect size.
1. Go to a jeweler to try different carat sizes to find your perfect size, do remember to ask the measurements of the stone, different gemstones measured differently, moissanite is measured by mm, so please make sure you know the measurements of the stone. For the mm of different sizes of moissanite, please check here: https://www.doveggs-seattle.com/collections/loose-moissanite

2. Draw or use a paper to cut into the shape and size, visualize it on your hand. We found lots of customers using this way to find their perfect size and not a one go wrong, we know it is kind of funny, but how creative it is! :)

CUT

Round

1. Hearts & Arrows (H&A) is an abbreviation of the “Eight Hearts & Eight Arrows” cut, and is also known as the “Brilliant Cut”. It is the most classic and expensive cut, and is the cut that DovEggs has been focused on for 5 years. It shows Moissanite’s brilliance and fire more than any other cut.
2. Astro cut is a cut we developed by DovEggs mean to resemble diamond more, it was mixed by the crushed ice cut and the old European cut. It shows less brilliance than H&A. For the round shape, the old European cut shows more in the Astro cut.
3. The Portuguese cut is a cut with the pattern of a sunflower, has many tiers and facets, is very suitable for colored moissanite stones, and shows great brilliance. It is available in our colored moissanite collection, and several flowery designs in clear moissanite as well.
4. The Crown Arrows (CA) cut is also H&A, but is top 10% cut range of their H&A stones. The cut is the most essential factor which determines the quality of Moissanite, therefore CA also represents the top 10% in quality, and is guaranteed to show the top brilliance & fire of a moissanite stone.

5.The Nova cut was developed by DovEggs, combines 3 different cuts, and is meant to best showcase moissanite's unique sparkle. The round Nova cut contains 129 facets, which is the most facets out of all cuts currently available on the market. It contains small sparkles all over the stone.  The name of this cut was suggested to us by one of our customers, Stella Brown, and voted on by our inner group of loyal customers together.
