I wouldnt reccomend doing that. I think most can tell the differance. The cut and sparkle are quite differant. You may end up getting caught in a lie.

There is nothing wrong with Asha on it’s own.

Both cuts will closely resemble diamonds – that is what the Asha was designed/created for. Because the stones are so white and flawless, people will be more likely to recognise the stone for what it is the larger you go, so I would be more worried about getting a smaller more “believable” sized stone than the cut. 🙂 Good luck on your stone hunt.

@LaylaSky:  Have you looked on the BTD Asha boards? I feel like they must know better. I can only think of one bee who has an Asha, but people do commonly say that Asha simulates a diamond much better than moissanite does.

And a note about the PP: you don’t owe anyone an explanation or a justification of your engagement ring. Get what you love and works for your budget.

@Korenne:  No, most people can’t tell. Most jewelers can’t either, without special equiptment.

@Korenne:  You’re confusing Asha with Moissy.  Asha has the same cut and type of sparkle as a diamond.

 

@LaylaSky:  Get which ever cut you like best.  All of them look realistic but keep in mind it’s not a forever stone and that you must be careful with it.  You may want to decide soon because btd.com is not making a lot of cuts.  I think they are sticking with round, cushion, and princess but check the btd.com forum for the exact cuts.

@LaylaSky:  They are all really the best cut, so just get whichever one looks the best to your eyes! Each Asha shape (round, pear, cushion, etc.) is cut to mimic an ideal cut diamond, so I don’t think there is a more “realistic” shape. 🙂

I’d also suggest buying an “H” colored Asha (if you can) instead of the “F”, a lot of Asha owners prefer the sliiiiiiiiight bit of warmth the “H” color has, and many think the “H” is more passable.

I disagree with Korenne, most (and I mean, like, 98%) people will not be able to tell it is not a diamond. It is your hand and your ring, do as you wish!

As for your original question, I’ve never seen a cushion cut Asha in real life, so I’m no help! Sorry.

The ACC is a real diamond cut, just an antique one.
