First and second are both moissy. Third looks the most diamond like to me.

Im going with #1. But just once I would love to see this expiriment with all the stones in the same lighting and in focus! Lol.

I think it’s the middle one.

So many of these threads seem to be less game/experiment more an attempt to convince/reassure that a sim will “pass”.
Op, need clear pics in the same lighting, videos would help too as moissanite sparkles/behaves differently. Without that, we are all just blindly guessing at blurred old pics….

I think they all look like either a sim or poor clarity, its hard to tell though as only one is in focus

I don’t think moissy’s are sims aren’t they considered a gemstone?
Post # 22
no, theyre diamond simulants. Created, developed, and marketed as such.

i think it’s a matter of opinion, all precious stones are gemstones (even CZ) but i personally think moissanite is a simulant. no one says “look at my diamond, it looks just like a moissanite!” “my diamond is so pretty, it looks like a cubic zirconia!”. to me, the appeal of moissanite/cubic zirconia is that it simulates the presence of a diamond (sparkly, clear stone) for a much more affordable price. others may disagree and say they like moissanite/CZ in its own right, which i respect! i just think most of the appeal of these gemstones is their presence as a simulant.

The middle one looks like moissy to me, the way the light is reflecting in rainbow colors. The others I can’t tell but they look to have cooler reflections so I think they are diamond.

Not to be rude, but I find it funny how some bees are all “I could totally tell the difference between moissanite and diamond. It’s so obvious!” On the threads about if a bee should get moissanite or diamond. But now… “The pics are too blurry! We need better pics”. Just my two cents. If you can’t tell the difference, thats alright. It doesn’t make you any “better” if you can tell the difference. Just my two cents 😀

For me ovals are the most obvious and rounds always get me! But I think the one on the way left is moissy only because the prongs kinda look like the prongs on my mom’s moissanite ring from moissaniteco. But other than that, they all look the same to me

well come on, its true! In comparison videos on instagram and such the difference is obvious. A grainy iphone pic out of focus in all different lighting.. who knows (though I still think its #1). A pic in general, even if its in focus, a well-cut cz moissy and diamond can all look the same because you 1) cant see the performance in a static pic and 2) the lighting is typically cherry-picked for the best results and 3) by design, they all do look damn similar. That being said, in real life, especially in passing, white stone = diamond, and the H&A is a great sim. The ovals and princesses…. not so much.
