@MrsLevell2Be:  I’ve been going in circles trying to decide which wink to order also. I’ve heard good things about them and they are very realistic looking. I say maybe I love the pear and angel cut ones. Try one out and see how you like it. I’m not sure if they have a return policy or not.

Wink CZs are fabulous! Here is a link to his videos, showing some loose stones.

If you go with a colorless stone, be sure to add heat treatment as it adds depth and color, making the stone more realistic and much prettier. 

They are all gorgeous!

Agree with the heat treatment option…its only 15.00 andturns the “too white” cz into am H to J colored diamond look. From what I hear, that is how most people can tell a cz…they look too white at first glance. I actually think Wink is the way to go for a great simulant for cheap money.

I think you should try out the Wink Cartier cushion!! Those are to die for if you like the chunky facets. And definitely have it heat treated. It supposedly takes the stone to around an H in color and it does bring depth.

@MrsLevell2Be:  Check out the “Simulants – Other” board on the BetterThanDiamonds forums – there will be pics of Wink CZs of all different types. Try the search bar on that forum as well. You’ll definitely find lots of real life pics.

When I was looking into sims at one point & in love with Antique cushions, Wink had hands down the best antique cushion.  I was in love with them over the Asha version (both were nice), but Winks was definitely better, drew me in more, better aesthetic of the facets and more realistic-looking.  I had so wanted Wink’s version to have the ‘diamond-like coating’ the Asha’s did.  That would have made it absolutely perfect.
