Ok, I don’t own either, but I’ve researched them both quite a bit.

Pros of Asha: whiter, more “diamondlike”, and larger variety of cuts (hearts & arrows, Asscher, for example).  

Pros of Moissy: Sparkly, durable, gemstone in its own right

Personally, I would choose a Moissy.  While they say Ashas are durable, I’ve heard of the coating fogging and rare instances of scratching the coating.  I wouldn’t trust it to hold up over time.  Moissy’s double refraction I think is a plus, but it’s a turnoff to some because it’s not as diamondlike.  The only real downside to Moissy is the color, but from what others have said, it’s only an issue in larger cuts, plus people seem very happy with the new Mira.

Asha is a coated CZ, Mira is a moissanite.  I have an Asha because I am sensitive to the color, and the Mira cut isn’t too pleasing to me.  I’m going to wait until the hearts and arrows cut comes out then upgrade the stones 🙂
