I have lots of large moissy.  Here is my oval, it is as big as they come, 10×14.  But mine is pink.

 

10mm unenhanced oec in low lighting

 

10mm FB OEC showing warmth

same showing grey

showing body colour

 

I think that is what you can expect in terms of colour, if not whiter.  And setting in white metal will make it even whiter.

The colour of that wax is like the WORST colour for moissy, so you stone will look so much better than that.  Over cast weather, like dreary grey is bad for my moiss.  And the back seat of my car.  I HATE it back there.  Everywhere else it is totally fine!  And my fav is a sunny day, but in the shade. 🙂

@jcent:  I didn’t know you had a unenhanced! They are all gorgeous 🙂 

Here are mine. 9 mm rb and 9.5MM unenhanced OEC. Both pick up tons of surrounding color and the oec is more buttery.

It sounds like you’re worried you won’t be able to pass it off as a diamond? If that isn’t your concern, than disregard this. Tons of Moissy owners wouldn’t think of letting people believe its a diamond, they want them to know its their beautiful Moissy! 

With that said, unless you and your FI were the type of people who had, I don’t know, 60-100k to spend on a 3.7 carat diamond, I would assume it was fake no matter how convincing it looked!

If you love it, who cares what people think.

@jcent:  Ugh, give me your whole collection! And if you don’t want to give it to me, do you mind giving me your address and letting me know the next time you’re planning on going out of town? 😉

@HomeschoolingBeeof4:  Thank you!  Yup.  I will be selling that OEC though, and putting a coloured gem in that setting.

@jessicadarling:  LOL  It is actually growing beyond my comfort zone.

@jcent:  I love your rings. They’re so gorgeous…all of them! I know I’ve said it before but your collection is stunning. I’m somewhat envious…as are, I would imagine, many of the people who see your rings. Hopefully I’ll start my own collection sooner rather than later. 😉

@HomeschoolingBeeof4:  Love your rings too! I didn’t know your OEC was unenhanced–it looks so white!

@Lyssie:  Hey Lyssie, I think your oval looks very pretty. I don’t own a moissanite, but I think that jcent’s point about the color of the wax mold not being a great one to show off the moissanite is a good one. For what it’s worth, I would venture to guess that a puke green mold wouldn’t make a diamond look good either–it just seems like it would be unflattering to any stone! 

I was poking around WB and I found these pictures of a 3.5 carat (9.5 mm) moissanite that a Bee named naplis posted. It’s a round brilliant stone, and I think those tend to show less color than ovals. To me, the stone looks colorless in these photos, though maybe a bit grey in the first one.

 

I also found a couple more pictures of the oval halo moissanite posted in your other thread by a Bee who was not the owner. mdancer78, the owner of this ring, said in one of her posts:

“2.2 ct oval halo moissanite ring, enhanced…i adore it! sparkles like crazy! Mine has a very slight yellow tint (only at certain angles in overcast day)..otherwise beautiful white ;0)”

With this oval ring, I can see the slight yellow tint in the second picture, but in the other two photos it looks completely colorless to me. As far as I know, moissanites are in the near colorless range so there will be some body color and you might see it sometimes. Diamonds in that color range would show some body color too.

@MissMarple:  aww, thank you!  My dh and I are pretty settled in our lives now, and with young kids and 3 dogs, vacations are a thing of the past.  So I get sparkly things..he gets car things, lol.

@HomeschoolingBeeof4:  

I LOVE both of your ring sets to pieces!!! In fact I took the plunge and ordered my first moissanite (8mm FB loose stone) based on photos you two shared on WB.

I changed my diamond ring from a solitaire to a halo setting in 2012 but I miss the look of solitaire with blingy band. I didn’t have the nerve to tell my husband I want to change it back bcuz we spent quite a bit $$ on the diamond setting. Moissanite gives me the guilt-free option.
