@MissFemmeFatale:  no one has ugly photos of moissanite.  Apparently they are a sign of the second coming and if you say anything negative against them crows will sweep down and peck your eyes out!

@blingbling:  LOL

@MissFemmeFatale:  Here are a couple of pictures that show more body colour. My walls are a light grey and you can see how the moissanite kind of takes on this colour while the diamond doesn’t. It could be because it’s a fancy cut – I think rounds are whiter.

I don’t really have any pictures of mine but one thing I notice is that even with the Forever Brilliant enhancement I got, my stone looks more like an IJK range of colour. I was told they were supposed to look G-H in colour after the enhancement. The center stone is a 1.5ct which maybe is the reason why it looks so yellow. If I get a good pic I’ll definitely post it!

Why not just use diamonds in the band.  At that size, assuming a regular 1.5-3 mm type band, diamonds are pretty inexpensive and don’t really cost less than a moissanite band would.  The difference at that size comes more in the metal you use.

@MissFemmeFatale:  The bezel could be something to do with that but I thought that jewels (diamonds at least) normally have the light enter through their table not their sides (maybe moissanite is different?!). 

But I really think the colour is more to do with the cut it is (it is Forever Brilliant enhanced too).

Here’s a pic of the side, it has a little gap.

Moissanite has a different type of warmth than diamonds. Until I had an Amora and a diamond in my possession, I thought they looked the same, but now I can tell the two stones apart. What I mostly dislike about moissanite is the cut on the round brilliant and the colour it exudes in light that brings out its warmth. It’s a totally different tone than an H/I diamond. If you’re getting a thin pave band, you probably won’t notice much of a difference though.
