I glad you found something you love! I’ve never read anything like that about asha. I had no idea it could crack so easily. I would love to see pictures!

I ended up going with Moissy as well. Also really happy with my choice!

They dont crack that easily the damage would have been done during setting. This happens to diamonds too.

I also have an antique cushion in my ering and they definately dont sparkle as much as brilliant cut stones, obviously they are not cut to though/ I wear my round brilliant asha 5 stone wedding band every day and never wear the antique because the round brilliant sparkles more.

I am sorry you had a bad experience.

I am super happy with my rings. It sounds like you got a dud. The crack is what would have made your ring ugly in sunlight too (it would have completely impeded the light).

Glad you found moissy to make you happy. I love that there are sims out there to suit all situations and tastes 🙂

@Hbright42:  Your pictures didn’t work.

I’m so glad you’re happy!  I love my Moissy 🙂

I just upgraded my ering from an Asha to a Moissanite as well! And I couldn’t agree with you more. The Asha wasn’t as “real” looking and didn’t sparkly very much at ALL. Even out in the sun. It looked more like broken or crushed glass than a stone in an ering. My moissanite, which I just got 2 weeks ago, it’s amaaaaazing. I haven’t had to clean it once (I had to clean the Asha every couple of days because it would get cloudy) It is a little yellow looking when it’s next to my Asha eternity band (which I’m replacing with a moissanite band TOMORROW… yay!) but when I’m wearing the Moissanite by itself, I don’t see any yellow at all. VERY pleased with my new Moissanite ring 🙂

I have an asha and I totally agree about the light ing. Especially under bright florescent lights totally looks like a normal cz. Mine looks pretty damn good in sunlight and throws rainbows al over. And in low light, I mean the thing is breathtaking. But I will not be sorry to upgrade to the amora gem or a gb moissy

I just thought I would share this as well since my Moissanite wedding band just came in the mail yesterday. Here’s my old 3.5mm Asha wedding band (top) and my new 3mm Moissanite wedding band (bottom). They both were proffessionally cleaned right before this picture was taken. You can see how the Asha one looks blurry and dull but the Moissanite has more sparkle to it and even a little hint of color. The Asha is much whiter but the Moissanite has more fire/sparkle. It’s all about personal preference! Hopefully this helps someone in their decision on which type of stone to buy.

Thank you!

And I agree… I will be keeping the moissanite band and selling the Asha band 😉
