It’s a shame the jeweler didn’t bring out a 1ct diamond to better compare the two.

The super long claws are freaking me out!

I’d go with the diamond.  I just think moissy looks so costumey sometimes, especially in larger sizes.  I’ll keep my .60 carat diamond over a bigger moissy any day.

@hlayers:  good for you. The purpose of this post was to give more pics of moissanite for people who are on the fence. Glad you’re so happy with your diamond. I am just as happy with my moissy.

I’m not a fan of that moissanite personally. Maybe it’s just the pics but to me it has a bit of a cloudy appearance. Now I’ve seen some amazing moissanite on here but I’m not digging that one. I prefer the diamond.

@weddingbound:  that’s the double refraction in the stone making it look cloudy. It can make taking photos of the ring a challenge, but there is no cloudiness IRL. 🙂

@Helloemi:  Oh ok. I’ve never seen one IRL but I know many bees on here have them and their pics are amazing. Maybe it’s just the lighting making it appear that way. I’d still love to see one in person.

Well whether or not you were asking for a preference or not when you have a post stating mossinate vs diamond you are going to get preference responses when you post on a public forum…. Something u might want to keep in mind 🙂

@weddingbound:  I know the feeling I was super hesitant to bother with it until I took the dive and got one!

Yay! These are the first moissanite vs. diamond pictures where I’m actually able to see a difference! I’m seeing more color come into and out of the moissanite. More blues and yellows and purples whereas the diamond stays pretty colorless. Seems like it kind of sucks up its surroundings in a way?

My rings are diamond, but I might try out a moissanite band later on, when we can afford an unecessary expense. 🙂
