    I have amora moissy. I really like it. It’s very sparly and the price is right. However after having it for several months, I’ve noticed a lot it’s differences with diamond (the “black hole” effect, discoloration). So while I do like it, I wouldn’t say that I love it.

    I don’t think amora was a thing when I got mine, but I have an enhanced moissanite and love it. It’s partly because I wasn’t expecting it to be identical to a diamond and partly because I just love sparkle!

    @Nicole121212:  I guess it’s complicated for me. I really wish I had a diamond, but there’s no way we could afford a similar size diamond and I really like the size. Don’t get me wrong though, I really like my ring. It’s just that sometimes it looks very yellow or green or I notice that it doesn’t sparkle the same way as a diamond and I feel a little embarrassed that it looks “fake” (as in not like a diamond).

    Mine is not enhanced and I love it, but I didn’t buy it expecting it to perform like a diamond. I find the people who buy it with that expectation are often the ones who find themselves disappointed. If you want a diamond, buy a diamond. If you can’t afford a diamond go with an Asha or other high quality CZ.

    @Nicole121212:  Yea, it’s really tough to say what’s best for you. For me, the larger moissanite is definitely better, but you might feel differently. I will say that when I first got it, I thought it was perfect and over time I started noticing its flaws. If I were you, I’d order a loose moissanite and keep it for the longest amount of time allowed by the return policy (probably 30 days) and spend a lot of time during the period looking at it in different lights and conditions and letting some of the new feeling wear off so you can see how much you will really like it.

    @Nicole121212:  Moissaniteco lets you order loose stones. Order one, see if you like it. If you don’t, return it within the return period and you’re only out the shipping cost. I’d say it’s worth it to see if you want it for your forever-ring.

    @Nicole121212:  Moissanite is beautiful, and it won’t need to be replaced so you could always buy yourself some time by going with a moissanite until you can afford a diamond. If you’re color sensitive (if warmth in the stone would bother you) don’t go with moissanite. Mine turns a light buttery yellow under overcast skies, and while I love that effect, it really annoys others who want a white look all the time. Also the sparkle while amazing is much more amped up than a diamond’s refraction. Moissanites also lack the depth a diamond has appearance wise.

    99% of the people you encounter won’t notice or care about these differences, only you can determine how much they would grate on you. I had my ring cleaned a few days ago and under the lights at Target it looked like a laser show. I got 3 compliments in 20 minutes!

    I agree that most people won’t notice the difference between moissanite and diamond. A lot of people can’t tell even when they have both next to each other and the few that can usually have a lot of experience with diamonds and know what to look for. Keep in mind that most people who look at your ring will only glance at it for a few seconds and they won’t be studying or looking for flaws. So, I think that you probably won’t have problems with other people noticing that it’s not a diamond, but since you’re wearing it all the time you will probably notice.
