First off, sorry for the vague title. I honestly had no idea what to title this thread LOL.
So basically, I just noticed an odd trend (not sure if trend is the right word, but go with me) on here when it comes to the size of stones. Why is it when someone posts about a large moissanite people are quick to say “it looks fake” or “it looks like costume jewelry” or some other generally negative opinion, but when someone posts about a large diamond people are practically crapping their pants and saying how “gorgeous” the stone is or “what a huge beautiful rock”, etc. I read one thread about a large moissanite that had well over 100 replies and so many of them were negative and immediately after read a thread about a large diamond and not a single one mentioned the issues brought up in the moissanite thread (i.e. fake looking or costume like).
So I’m genuinely curious…why the difference in opinions?
I know the debates between moissanites and diamonds can become a little heated so let’s try not to get mean. I’m just genuinely curious. For the record, I like both stones. I own a diamond but I spend a lot of time looking at moissanites as I’d like one for my RHR one day. So to me, I’d have the same comment on a thread about a 3ct moissanite as I would about a 3ct diamond….”dude, I’m jealous!” LOL
