@princessshay:  Were in the process of having my moissanite ring made. When I told my jeweler I wanted “enhanced” moissanite, he told me it wasn’t necessary because of the “new”  unenhanced moissanite they came out with early last year. Its much whiter than before. I was nervous before I saw it, afraid of the yellow/green colors but honestly, I love it. This was the loose stone

this is it set in the blue wax mold. All the stones are unenhanced. We even put them side by side with a diamond and I still thought the moissanite was much more beautiful. I dont think you’ll have any issue with a unenhanced in a double halo setting.

@princessshay:  No, its not from moissaniteco. When I told my jeweler I was thinking about ordering from them, he told me he had a rep that he went through for moissanite. I’m not sure exactly who he ordered through

I have a 1.25 OEC FB moissy. My bands are both diamond. I am very color sensitive, and can easily tell the difference. However, I like that difference. If you want something diamond like, moissanite will disappoint you.

 MrsPPP:  Love your set!

I bought an amora moissanite in 8mm and I see a green tint sometimes. Also I see white. I love the stone, especially because it’s set in rose gold 🙂

Scintillante:  Thanks!! You also have the white gold or platinum Zales cluster diamond ring, with the white gold diamond band, and then you added the rose gold diamond band, right? 

I love that set. It’s right up there with MrsSkeletonKey’s JBEG and FutureDrAtkins’ Schubach’s double halo….I’ve been a lurker for years!

(Stalk much? Bahaha)

I’m in LOVE with my moissanite!  I have an 8mm (2ct eqiv.) round Forever Brilliant and the amount of compliments I get on a daily basis is amazing.  I had similar concerns about the color of the stone before I got engaged but I’ve had it for 6 months and I’m yet to see any crazy colors (yellow, green, ect.).  I’d suggest you go to moissaniteco.com (where we bought my ring) and email Chris, he can answer any question you have much better than I can regarding the specific differences between moissaintes.

A picture absolutely cannot capture the brilliance of moissanite, but here’s my attempt 🙂

I have a 1.4 carat equivalent cushion cut unenhanced moissanite which by all reports should show quite a bit of color. Mine is white white like 75% of the time if not way more. It only changes a big in overcast days, and soemtimes it reflects whatever I’m wearing. I LOVE the little bit of color it puts off, but I don’t have diamonds with it so I can see your concern.

Whether you go with enhanced, amora, or unenhanced I will say you will love your moissanite. I LOVE mine and am so glad I found this site and found out about moissanite. I see friends with diamonds all of the time and I always prefer my stone to theirs. 🙂
