My Fiance and I are pretty sure that we want a Moissanite ring. I have an antique diamond ring and love it! He said he wanted to get me a bigger stone and I’m not objecting! I’ve decided on Moissanite because I think diamond prices are ridiculous and the “hoopla” over them is crazy.
I am now trying to decide between enhanced and unenhanced. I would rather get unenhanced because it is cheaper, but if the enhanced makes it look more “real” then I’ll spend the extra money. I am worried that getting an enhanced stone will look too much like a cz (in other words, fake), and an unenhanced will be too yellowish.
We’re thinking about a 1.5 carat. My ring size is 4.5
I haven’t been able to find a place that sells M’s around my area so If you all have pictures that’d be great.

@jessimckenzie: I don’t have any photos, but I do own a 1.5ct Amora enhanced. I haven’t seen unenhanced, but I can tell you that from certain angles and in certain lights my stone has odd coloring (green/yellow). I’ve gotten used to it by now, but it’s definitely not colorless, so I’d be worried about getting an unenhanced.

@jessimckenzie: I am sure all the moissy lovers on here will chime in, but time and time again I have read that if it’s the diamond look that you’re going for, you will be disappointed w. a moissanite.
From what I’ve heard, I think you’d be happier w. an enhanced one, but you should probably make sure that the place you buy it from has a good return policy in case you end up hating it since it really sounds like you want a diamond but don’t want to pay for one.

I bought an enhanced amora mssanite for a pendant but sent it straight back because it was way too yellow in most lighting. I would be afraid to get unenhanced, even in enhanced stones Iin photos I can see colour.
I think you best best would be to ordering of each and return the one you don’t like.

I’m getting an unenhanced one from MoissaniteCo, but that’s because we got a sale item and couldn’t upgrade. I’ll let you know once SO proposes and I actually get to see it in person lol

The enhances ones look whiter for sure. So if that’s what you’re going for, definitely enhance it. I have a 1 carat Mira enhanced moissanite and it looks pretty darn good to me!
