@TwilightBlue: To most people, they will mistake nearly any white stone as a diamond if it is in an engagement ring, and many ladies intentionally pass their moissanite stones off as diamonds. I, personally, think moissanite is a poor choice when trying to simulate the look of diamond. That is not to say most people won’t think it is one, but the sparkle is different. Moissanite is much warmer than Ashas, and will give you the “warm” look that nearly all antique cut diamonds have, whereas an Asha will be much whiter, but if you want a diamond look alike, I’d go Asha, because moissanite is not meant to simulate diamond, Asha stones however, are made specifically to duplicate the look of diamond. I own diamond, Asha, and moissanite, and personally prefer moissanite for my jewelry, but Asha looks like diamond.
