@Peanut-Sue:  I know and I wore that MRB for years and thought it was pretty nice. I color, decent cut, one small inclusion I could see by eye hidden under prong.

@MissCaraMia:  It really is sparkly! My diamond is too, that pic really does it no justice but it was the only one I had taken in the same room. See my avatar for better sparkle pic!   I think moissy is a great alternative. It is definitely a different sparkle. I prefer my diamond but I do love the moissy. It was a little moody, and a little yellowish for me, in certain light conditions. It is unenhanced. 

It is a gorgeous stone though!

I can’t see a difference. I’ve thought about getting myself a new piece of jewelry, so I went to moissanite.com but they’re so expensive!

@Rubbs:  They are definitely different – it’s not really visible in pics but they sparkle different and the coloring is definitely different from a diamond (in my unenhanced moissy stone anyway.) My diamond is a RB and H color. It looks much whiter in the one pic. Not sure why. I love both though!

@MissCaraMia:  I mentioned the price cuz I can’t believe some bees here say they chose moissy instead of a diamond cuz of the cost. Moissys look beautiful in my eyes and certainly not cheap.

@Rubbs:  They’re not cheap, but they’re still cheaper than diamonds. You can’t get a 1 carat diamond for $500.
