Very cool. My favorite pastime I trying to catch my moissanite in the act of changing colors on me. I also loooove mystic fire topaz, so there might be a connection there. Beautiful ring!

I’ve heard people say that they think moissanite owners mean “yellow” when they say “moody”, and I get kind of sad that they have never seen this cool feature in person and can’t understand it.

@FutureDrAtkins:  Haha I completely agree about diamonds. Disco ball is my favorite “mood”, so I’m sticking with moissanite for life.

While I know this is meant to highlight moissanite, I will say, diamonds do this as well, especially cushion cut diamonds. They show a lot of color, and reflect the environment, but probably a little less than moissanite. While I know they’re their own stone and meant to be embraced as so, this doesn’t look much different than my round brilliant diamond, it reflects the trees in the spring and when I had on a hot pink shirt, it looks similar to that bottom photo. Diamonds reflect colors and it’s surroundings depending on cut/color, my sister has a J colored cushion diamond, a Henri Daussi cut, and it looks almost bright green in the car.  She calls it a “chameleon” haha

@_gemma:  I agree that diamonds do this as well, but I find that moissanite does it to such a high degree that you can never be sure just how your moissy will look in a given situation. That, couple with the general tone of the stone, made it a frustrating stone to me. I’m glad the OP enjoys this property. 

On another note, it’s interesting you mention Henri Daussi cushions, because they are cut shallow, similar to moissanite. I wonder if the shallow cut is why they share some properties? I’m sure someone well versed in jewels can chime in.

Great pics!  I looooove it when my moissy looks dark steely gray.  I almost wish it looked like that all the time! I think it’s so pretty
