I’m getting a 3.75 carat moissanite oval ring with diamond halo, this is the computer rendering of it (showing a flawless stone…which moissanite won’t look like):
I haven’t seen it in person since it’s been created, but my BF said he was sad when he picked it up because the oval center stone looked yellow compared to the diamond halo. I’m nervious that when I get it, the moissanite and the diamonds will be vastly different.
I didn’t find out until AFTER he paid for it, that the larger the moissanite stone is, the more the color it will show. In fact, the jeweler basically told me if I got the forever brilliant that it wouldn’t show any color, so I was shocked to hear that my baby might not be as pretty as I’d hoped!
I’m actually not that worried about wearing it day to day because a lot of my friends know I want moissanite. I don’t really plan to keep it a secret, but I’d like the center stone to at least pass as a diamond. For some reason, I worry about wearing it to work, because my co-worker has a 2 ct flawless diamond and I’m scared she will know it’s a fake right away and I have this horrible vision of her and my boss talking about it behind my back (I never care about what people think…why do I care about this???)
Basically, I would LOVE to see if anyone on here has a large oval moissanite, or something similar that I can compare to. And I’d love to see how it looks in different lighting…. my BF said it’s only very noticeable in white light and in dim light (but keep in mind, I haven’t seen the actual ring in person yet)
I’m having a lot of trouble finding a thread with larger moissanite rings, especially oval. I know it’s a long shot, but it would sure be helpful if anyone has pics! Or even advice on how I should handle it at work if it looks fake under our lighting in the office!
