@claireos:  I have no interest in buying a moissy but I found this post fascinating. Cool pictures as well!

I think this will really help out the ladies who are considering moissanite. Well done!

That. Is. GORGEOUS. Ah! 

And moissanites are seriously so hard to photograph, they are a super moody stone! Sometimes my moissy pendant looks kinda cloudy and faintly sparkles, sometimes it’s decently sparkly and sometimes it’s a freaking discoball!

Thanks for the detailed review.  I’m considering a moissy for an OEC antique ring I plan to purchase later this year.

That is a great moissy review!!  That darkness you are seeing in  the center if the stone is from the shallow cut of moissy RBs; it is a reflection through the stone of the culet.  You should try another stone, some are cut better than others.

 

@NovaRising:  I have a moissy OEC and it is amazing!!!!!

@claireos:  Thanks!!  I think the majority of the variance is due to the fact that they are hand cut, and just a bit shallow.  Definitely try an OEC!!  They are fabulous.

@NovaRising:  Thanks!!!
