    Hey! I’m no expert but I have a moissanite ring and I am so in love with it. Mine is unenhanced and it doesn’t look like a diamond to me, ti throws a lot of green. If you were going to go that route later on, you’d probably want to get an enhanced stone.

    As far as longevity goes, moissanite is *supposed* to last a very long time. CZs lose their sparkle over time. Moissanites don’t.

    I haven’t really posted on these boards much, so I don’t know if they have been discussed, but I have as Asha and absolutely love it!  I’ve been wearing it for over 2 years and it is just as sparkly as when I got it!

    To be honest, I can tell that it’s not a diamond. It’s too bright and throws too much color.  It’s gorgeous though. Rock it!

    I’m not sure it’s a good idea to size the pave setting band because it can compromise the integrity of the band.  They should make it new to fit your finger.  I like your 1st ring much much more.  Can’t they just smooth the prongs so they don’t scratch?

    What about a bezel setting?

    I can tell, but it doesn’t matter. Are you sure that the new setting will be any better for work? It looks quite rough and like it could easily scratch a kid or a senior because of all the pave diamonds. It is beautiful, but you might find that it’s also not so practical for your line of work…

    Mine is a 1ct oval Moissantie center with a diamond double halo and split pave band. 1.37 total, including the wedding band.  Size 7 for scale ๐Ÿ™‚ I would say the color rating is probably a K, it only looks pale yellow in natural sun light, almost to the point where it would be sold as a fancy yellow… The color doesn’t bother me, I think it make the ring look a little more interesting.  If you are expecting a pure white go with the enhanced moissanite.  I ordered thought MoissaniteCo after reading a lot of good reviews here, I ordered Sunday morning with the free 2-3 day FedEx Express option, it shipped Tuesday, and it arrived Friday.  When I took the stone  to have it set the jeweler asked where I purchased my diamond ๐Ÿ™‚

    My moissanite has been in lots of jewelry stores to see wedding bands, and everyone was shocked to find out it was moissanite!

    It is a beautiful setting, but as another elementary teacher, I’d advise against pave as well.  I have a beautiful right hand ring that I rarely wear because I keep losing the diamonds in it (thank goodness I have a protection plan and they replace them for free, but still).

    @MrsCanoodle:  I can definitely tell it’s not real. But what matters is that you love it. But as far as styling don’t just chose a round over a princess thinking it is less prone to scratching. I have 2 small kids and I decided to wear my promise ring.. Which is low profile and has round stoned and I scratched my daughter! You can scratch with any ring and any setting. Honestly the ring you chose is beautiful but for your line of work I don’t think it’s practical to have so many diamonds. I know I’m terrified of losing any so I went with a simple solitaire and plain band. Of course I also prefer an understated look. Also sinice there are so many prong set diamonds there is more chances of any of those getting caught on something.

    Honestly the setting and the center stone don’t look like actual diamonds, it looks like costume jewelry.  It is very different though and if that is your personal taste then go for it.

    i can tell too. the colors look different than a diamond.

    if you want the most diamond-like i would go for Asha. check out http://www.betterthandiamond.com for Asha info and pics. It is slightly less than moissanite too.

    Basically it’s CZ coated with diamond, so it is very durable and doesn’t cloud like CZ would without the diamond coating.

    I agree with peaches13 that the second ring you chose might not suit your work either. i think something with a plain band might be better. plain band and halo? the pave stones tend to fall out more easily as they are set so shallow.

    With all the pave you might just trade one prob for another. With all you do not only will it get super dirty but it will take alot of abuse and some of the stones might fall out. If you are set on that ring then I would go moissy too because the CZ was really rainbow’y but if you like that then go for it. Could you possibly get a bezel setting for your first diamond ring?
