Try not to think of this as diamond vs. moissanite. Try to think of it as what you would choose if on a budget. This would be your ring for life. Imagine having a large ring size. Finger coverage is desirable. On this large finger, a .33 ct would look more like a .20ct. A 1 ct will look more like a .5 ct as far as coverage goes.
Setting: standard Tiffany-style 6 prong in white gold
stone: round brilliant
ETA: I added another option. How many bees could be happy with a stone that looked like the equivalent of .20 ct on their finger as a forever ring? Let’s imagine that DH doesn’t believe in upgrading the original.

@anonbee06: if you want the coverage and you are on a budget, go with the moissy.

I have never seen a moissy in person but if my options were only the .33 diamond or a 1ct moissy – count me in for the moissy!

With no chance of upgrading and the desire for finger coverage, I’d get the moissanite stone. 🙂

I’ve never seen a moissy in real life, I hear great things but I voted for the diamond

I think having your ideal stone size is way more important than having a diamond vs. having a moissy.

i would go with the moissy. I have seen them and they look like diamonds to me, but I am no expert and not very knowledgeable about the “look” of diamonds…single refraction vs double, etc. Depending on your budget too, there are larger diamonds of lessser quality on ebay but it means bidding and waiting and settling. All iin all, I would o with moissanite. I want one myself.

I would never choose a moissy over a diamond.
