No, no one has ever asked if it is a diamond.  I tell people I know what it is but they never would have guessed before I told them.  My mentor at my internship last year loves diamonds and always looks at them with her slit lamp (magnification and light used for looking at eyes) and said to me “I have never seen a diamond cut ike this before!” 

 

A lot of bees claim on here they could spot a Moissy a mile away, and I do think it is easier to tell them apart in pictures, but in real life no one notices.

@luckylady3090:  No one has asked me, but I rarely give them the chance to because I’m so quick to tell everyone that my center stone is a moissy lol.  I can definitely tell the difference between my moissy and my diamond sidestones since I’ve spent hours staring at my ring in different lighting; however, I would say that most people in a passing glance wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.

I have never been asked if I have  a diamond, most people in the midwest have no idea that other stones exist other than diamonds and CZs. I don’t offer up the information either because I don’t have to.

Never, ever been asked. I do tell people what it is though.

Moissanites are not really known at all in the UK so people assume it’s a diamond. But I’m very proud of having a moissanite! My fiance and I love the fact that it’s ethical and budget friendly. I tell everyone that it’s a moissanite, straight up and without being asked, because I want more people to know about the stone here 🙂 I think if I had a large stone that we never could have afforded in diamond (like 2 ct or something) then people would probably just assume it was a CZ, which look very similar to diamonds anyway.

Having said that, I was sneaking a look at my colleagues’ diamonds when we were in the conference room earlier this week, and mine definitely sparkles more rainbows compared to theirs, which have a white/grey sparkle. Suits me fine! People assume it’s a higher quality, better cut diamond.

@luckylady3090:  Nobody has ever asked.  My friends/anyone who I’ve ever talked to about it knows, so sometimes they ask questions about the stone, knowing it’s not a diamond. 

I am 100% sure that many people think it’s a diamond, since many people who I’ve gotten closer to post-engagement have been surprised when it comes up in conversation, but it would be suuuuuper weird to go around yapping about my engagement ring to strangers, so I just let it be.

@luckylady3090:  Thank you! It’s an enhanced RB, but I was so torn between the RB and the OEC. When we ordered the ring there weren’t any enhanced OECs available so that swung it for me. I think the OEC cut is so beautiful.

The larger size stone, the more likely you will get “is that a diamond/real”.  However that happens if you have a large diamond too.  For the most part, I can spot a moissy.  The sparkle is different to my eyes.  Diamonds tend to display 1 color- per facet, until you change the angle of light.  I notice that moissy tends to show a whole rainbow on a single facet.  You can cleary see it on the latest photos of the amora gem, floating around on here.
