    I researched these for a long time before getting mine and I say enhance. From what I’ve gathered, if you don’t want to see a color, or want I to be faint and are going over 1ct, have one enhanced either by getting the Amora which is supposed to be the whitest clearest or the Forever Brilliant which is slightly less expensive but also slightly less white. I have a 2ct Forever Brilliant enhanced round.  In direct sunlight and in most industrial type buildings it is very white. In dim lighting it is a light canary-colored yellow. Sometimes it even has a slight green/gray tint. It doesn’t bother me but if it was any worse I think it would so I’m very glad I went with an enhanced stone. I also had my wedding band made with moissys. They are 3.5mm rounds, unenhanced and are very clear and sparkly. Here’s a look at my wedding set, hope this helps you lady! πŸ™‚

    I would say enhance. I just got my 1.25 Amora and it’s just incredible . The larger you go the more Id say enhance!!! Besides its not like you’d be disappointed in an enhanced but you may have a chance If its not enhanced. 

     

    my Amora is ridiculous !

    I would get an enhanced Moissy for sure, if you’re going above 1.5 ct. I have a 1 ct solitaire, and while it’s quite clear, in some dim lights it throws off a little bit of a yellow, but that is rare.

     

    It’s a one carat radiant cut solitaire, I’m obsessed with it. πŸ™‚

    How on earth does a 2ct diamond need to be enhanced?!

    @rubbs  it’s a Moissanite, not a diamond–totally different gemstone.

    Although I have diamonds, I agree with you, moissanite is certainly a very cost effective alternative to a quality diamond.

    I have read that the larger a moissanite is, the more it shows yellow or even a slight green color. Would definitely get the enhanced. The enhancement still won’t take it down to a “d” colorless diamond color, only a near colorless-think “h” color so you won’t have to worry as you said about it being “too white” like a cubic zirconium.

    Congratulations on your engagement!

    Unenhanced if you love moissanite

    Enhanced if you’d like it to look more like a diamond

    I’d say enhance.

    I’m a color hog and it just looks weird in dim lighting. Both regular and forever brilliant was not my cup if tea. I don’t know if I just got bad gems or what.
