Mine is ordered but on layaway so I probably won’t be able to see it in person until Valentine’s Day. We ordered eng110, 1.7ct, 6.5 mm princess cut center with 2 baguettes on each side.
My question is to those of you who already own the princess cut moissanite. How does it appear in person? Does it look like a diamond the way the stone is cut or does it look like a completely different stone?
The square brilliant cut moissanite does look different from a princess cut diamond because the cuts are quite different from each other. I have a 6 mm, 1.36 ct square cut moissanite and on it’s own, no one has ever asked me if it’s a diamond because the shape is unusual. My sister’s mother-in-law is a jeweler so she might be able to tell on her own, but none of my friends or family could tell it wasn’t a diamond until I told them.
@NAvery: That is gorgeous and similar to the one I ordered. What size is the center stone and what size is your finger so I can gauge how mine will look? It’s KILLING me not to have been able to see it in person on my finger before ordering.
This is my sis-in-law’s e-ring. It’s 1.70ct square brilliant moissanite.
I’ve seen enough diamonds to know that it isn’t a DIAMOND bcuz the facets are very different! But I also worked in a fine jewelry store for several years so I’m quite familiar with many gemstones.
All I’m saying is, the moissy stone is beautiful, sparkly and it seems like a fine gem that could be passed down for generations. However fancy cuts moissanites do show body colors and to the trained eyes, the square cut doesn’t resemble a diamond IMO.
I’m told mine is princess cut and don’t have a square brilliant to compare to, but based on pictures I think mine is cut different than square brillaint. It’s 5.5mm Forever Brilliant “super bright” in platinum, size 4.
Sorry for the massive pic! Mine is 5mm which I think is about 0.8 ct? Nobody has ever asked if it wasn’t a diamond but I tried on a diamond eternity ring with my moissy and they looked completely different. It threw off all this rainbow-y fire and the diamonds just didn’t look up to much. Maybe because they were several small stones compared to one big one, I don’t know.
