SO I finally got my Ering back today!
To give you the back story, the main stone in my ring was a 2.2ct equivalent cubic zirconia with real diamonds on the band. I made decision to go with size over stone because that’s just more my style. Anywho, after some weddingbee stalking I discovered moissanite, did a bit of research and asked a jeweller here in Australia to order and change my stone to moissy. 4 weeks later I finally got my ring back.
Now i had never seen moissanite in person before so I was pretty surprised when I saw it!! However, so far I have decided I love it!
Here are some of the things I’ve noticed with the moissy so far:
it is significantly sparklier than diamond and cz, it is much less transparent than the cz (this is something that bothered me with the cz), to me the double refraction is only obvious in some lights and when you are actually looking for it, sometimes the moissy can throw a lot of yellow (this might stand out more to me cause i have the smaller diamonds in the background), sometimes the moissy looks almost white.
Overall – in my opinion (and I am definitely NO expert!!), moissy is a gorgeous diamond alternative for those who couldn’t afford a real diamond or even prefer moissy! I don’t think I would even switch to a diamond if I had the option. I also believe it would be much easier to pass a moissy off as a diamond than a CZ if that’s your aim! I say that because until recently I had never even heard of moissy so to me it looks just like a diamond!!
two comparison photos are below from before and after the change! Feel free to give your opinion on which you prefer!!

Thanks all! 🙂
hope I was able to help anyone looking at getting a moissy! I should probably point out that whilst I said it does throw yellow, that has only happened on one occasion, 90% of the time it looks perfect (even a little too perfect). Mine is also enhanced as I wanted to avoid the yellowing as much as possible. Definitely a gorgeous gem and I can’t stop staring at it!

I just recently received my Moissanite ring. I had a diamond set previously, but it was small and not my taste. I actually posted a long post about moissanite vs diamond. My accent bands are diamond, but small ones. I love the sparkly nature of the moissanite, and i am in love with my rings!!! Mine are set in rose gold, which some have said bring out the yellow in the moissanite, but i have not found this to be true. My center stone is a 7.5mm cushion cut moissanite. I absolutely love that i get to have the ring of my dreams and not be in debt!!!
