My engagement is a 9mm/3 carat round brilliant amora on a 5.25 finger. The settingis ssol346and I had it made in 14k Rose Gold. I ADORE my ring and pair it with an eternity band. I honestly can say that I have no complaints about my amora, chosen setting or moissaniteco (who was great to deal with). I chose moissanite for many reasons, cost not being one. I will not bore you with my reasons or opinions 🙂  It all comes down to personal preference and at the end of the day you have to be happy with your ring 🙂 

 

P. S. All of these pictures were ttaken with my cell phone and uploaded with my cell phone so I apologize if they are bad quality. I will get some pictures with my good camera soon.

@FutureMrsHolmes:  That’s super pretty! I like that a lot. Mine isn’t the same ring, but it’s kind of close and might give you an idea.  Unfortunately, I took it myself and the lighting sucked so the sparkle is not great; )

@HomeschoolingBeeof4:  Haha, sorry! Your ring is beautiful! I don’t see rose gold in person very often, and I loooove it.

I have a question from those of you who own moissy stones – ane esp if you own moissy and diamonds for compare/contrast.

I had ONLY heard of/seen Moissy stones on this forum, but finally last week saw some in person at a store in the mall. (I wondered if Wedding Bee was owned by Moissy Cartel or something for awhile lol)  They definitely have a different look – but I can see why they are sometimes compared to diamonds.

I was trying to put my finger on what makes them different because hey faceted, clear stone that sparkles – but the way Moissy is faceted defintely looks different. I’m sure it’s because it’s a different material but the other (and even more noticeable difference) was the “sparkle”  My e-ring and other diamond jewelry seems to have a sparkle that’s almost white-pastel colors when the sun/or light hits it.  Moissy sparkle tends to have a strong, pure prisim sparkle.  (Like a good diamond does throw colors, but they tend to be pale pink, pale yellow, etc… The moissy I saw seems to throw rainbow colors, like pure reds, blues, etc…)

Do you guys that own moissy jewelry agree? Or was it just the type I happened to see in the store that day? I know they have different types of moissy being marketed now for different looks. (most photos totally don’t capture prisim/sparkle effects accurately on any gem.) Its kind of hard to judge from just looking at an example in a jewelry store (under those crazy LED lights that make EVERYTHING sparkle like mad) but I figure owners/wearers of it probably can give the run down of it IRL.

@MirnaMinkoff:  

 

What shape did you see at the jewelry store?  Some of the moissanite shapes have unique cutting styles to them, but most are cut just like diamonds.  The square brilliant is probably the most notable one, but recently I have seen some stones come accross my desk that are looking more princess like.  The other shape I might say was a little unique would be the round brilliant. The facteing pattern is very similar to most round brilliant diamonds, but it does tend to be alittle  shallow.   That’s not something most people would easily see, though, so, I’m guessing you either saw an older square brilliant, or one of the 89 facet rounds.  They have a very splintery look.
