My BF and I are trying to decide on a good diamond alternative (no need to launch into the definitions of what qualifies as a diamond “alternative”. I’m well aware.) I really would just love to see pics of asha and moissanite rings. Preferably enlongated cushion cut or radiant 2ct or larger w/ halo…

Don’t have any pics to share 🙁 I will say however, that I just got my 4ct forever brilliant cushion moissanite and it is TO DIE FOR. I keep it in a little box beside my bed and I keep taking it out to stare shamelessly. I haven’t seen an asha in person, and although I’m sure they’re gorgeous, they still are a CZ, and diamond-coated or not they will still wear and change in appearance after some time. Moissanite does not cloud or change at all over time, so if you’re not looking to change out the stone or upgrade at any point, I would go moissanite. I have no regrets!

DO NOT BUY AN ASHA! I made the mistake of purchasing an Asha wedding set. Within a couple of months all the stones were dull, cloudy, and lacked sparkle. They looked like blurry glass by month 6. So I purchased a Moissanite wedding set instead. The difference was HUGE! I’ve had my moissanite set for almost 1 year now and it still looks just as sparkly as it day on day one! Moissanites sparkle much more than even diamonds do. I took a necklace into my local jeweler last weekend and just for fun I had them test my moissanite rings. The jewelers passed the rings around taking guesses on if they were diamonds or moissanites. even the diamond tester machine that they have said that they were diamonds! they girls there were in shock when i told them they were Moissanites and told me they were jealous of my stones!
Below is my Asha wedding band on top and my Moissanite band on the bottom after they were both professionally cleaned. HUGE difference. Go with Moissanites, girl! You won’t regret it!

Wow the difference is night and day! Ive never seen asha or moissy in person but it looks to me like the moissanite wins hands down! Who wants a wedding set that clouds in 6 months..get the moissy!
