@Miss Tattoo: That’s GORGEOUS!

 

I’ll also add that I went with moissanite, ordered from Moissaniteco.com. I couldn’t be more pleased with my ring, or with the service from Moissanite Co. I’ve already recommended them to a friend!

@jayce: We have two accounts on moissaniteco.com my main account was my wishlist and the account that I have asked customer service so many questions about everything. I emailed him my account info with the username and password and then when it was time to order, he made his own account so I wouldn’t get the emails with tracking numbers and what not.

Robyn in customer service has been so awesome! That poor woman probably groans when she sees my name in the chat box. lol Even though I have been trying to get a tracking number out of her with no success,  (She actually told me to be patient and wait for the biggest surprise of my life!) they have been awesome at answering every single one of my questions.

AND they have the reward program now so after his purchase, I think we have $70 towards our next purchase (which should be the bands, but I’m thinking about getting my mother a pair of earrings for christmas)

@Miss Tattoo: OOOOH that wishlist account is a good idea!  I’ve shown my bf some things I like, but getting them all together and then emailing him my info…. hmmm this could be good, very good.

I would google mossiante and read up on it.  I was considering it when I thought that I wouldn’t get what I wanted for an engagement ring so I did a lot of research on it.  I’ve seen it in person and its beautiful.  I would definitely find a jeweler that sells it and go look at it, I know Sears carries it.  I didn’t get to present the information to the Fiance because I didn’t want to interere in any plans he might have had.  In the end, I am completely happy with the route he choose.

 

Go see it and let us know.  🙂

Mossiante is the way to go.. It has more fire and is going to last you longer.

I did a lot of research on this as I am yet to purchase a wedding ring. Between Asha and Moissy, I have decided to go with a Moissy. I generally like the extra sparkle factor. Ppl want diamonds because they sparkle and they painstakingly dwell over the 4Cs to make sure the sparkle is at its optimum. Then comes a stone that sparkles twice as much and umm…. that’s suddenly a BAD thing?

Hi all. I am struggling with Amora vs Moissanite vs Asha, too. I just shot of video of all three together (unfortunately the camera work is a little blurry at times!). What do you all think?  Thanks.

I have found weddingbee’s discussion boards to be really helpful during my wedding planning.   Especially the debates on Asha vs. Amora Moissanite stones.

I wanted to give everyone my 2 cents about my Asha stone so that people know.  So, when I bought my stone about a year ago, I had never heard about Amora Moissanite.  I found the Asha stones and thought they sounded amazing.  So I bought one after reading tons of posts of people loving them.

My Asha is beautiful and shiny, however, I am NOT hard on my rings and I can see scratches across the top of my stone.  I’m so disappointed that I paid around $250 for stone that scratched and I’m going to have to replace.

I can’t afford another stone right now, but when I can, I will definitely be going with the Amora Moissanite or the Amora H&A stone that may be available in the future.

I don’t want anyone to face the same issues: apparently you will have to replace your Asha even though initially it’s more sparkly.  If I would have known that, I would have never wasted my money on it for my 1 ct.

Hope this helps!

I love my asha loose stone.  We are shopping for settings. 🙂  6mm cushion cut asha.  I love it! Second one is the stone upside down so I could see the size of the stone on my size 6 finger.

@dreamingofbling:  Moissys are real gemstones. They originally came from a meteorite, and there wasn’t enough to satisfy demand, so they took the chemical composition of the moissy and replicate it in a lab now.

@mrspinesol:  “moissys are real gemstones. … they took the chemical composition of the moissy and replicate it in a lab now.”

No, moissanite is not a real gemstone. It is a man created jewel from synthetic siicon carbide that has been altered to make it larger and whiter to  simulate a diamond.
The natural mineral silicon carbide that was discovered looked much different (minute/ black/green) than what is used in jewelry Thus moissanite is not a true synthetic (as it does not replicate the natural mineral) but is a created man made stone.
It’s still beautiful though. Smile
