I never heard of asha or moissNite until I joined wedding bee! & I’m pretty sure no one I know knows what it is either.

I had never heard of it prior to the Bee either!  I’ve mentioned it IRL to people and they always give me the weirdest look like…what is that?

I had never heard of it before WB either.  But then at Macy’s around Christmas time I was looking at jewelry and I overheard a sales associate offer customers a look at Moissanite.  I was like youve heard of it?? hah

@IzzyBear:  Really great article! What is interesting is that 5 out of 10 picked / identified Moissy as a diamond and only one out of ten picked out diamond correctly. This coming from people without previous experience with Moissanite. There are so many threads on here about Moissy not looking diamond like but it seems that to those who are not as familiar with it as bees who have Moissy , it looks more like a diamond than the actual diamond does….

Also, LMAO at the comment that one woman thought Moissanite was a religious group…

Read the article. Wasn’t until WB that I learned of diamond-look alikes besides CZ. Interestibg thing though for a good while on here I thought Moissanite was still a natural stone. Now knowing Moissanites are also man made, synthetic stones turns me off on them.

@IzzyBear:  None of my family knew what it was, and I didn’t until I came here. I am SO thankful I found this site, because I already know I’m going to love my moissanite once it’s set in my ering! I can’t wait to have my ring so I can educate people!
