I went with Asha personally because I eanted a diamond setting and I thought Quorri was overpriced for what it is.  But I would love to see pics.  They have lovely rings on their site.  I noticed they tend to have only E in color, is that what you went with OP?

Hey Durian,

Not sure if you have already decided, but I recently purchased a Quorri ring (simply based on my own judgement and the great email correspondance I have been receiving. I should be receiving it soon and will surely give you the full scoop on the ring and my experience. In the meantime, I suggest you email Asha, Quorri and whomever you feel is decent and see what they have to offer you and compare them all. Checking their BBB records is also a good way to start. Good luck! I’ll check back when I have more to say and show.

It finally arrived!!! My Quorri ring came and WOW!! I almost fell over with excitement. This ring is unbeleivable! Its heavy, its hand-made, and their DymondIX sparkles like crazy. Best of all, I saved thousands :).  The photos on their site are excellent, but to see this ring in person, its jaw dropping. She is going to lose her mind when she receives it!

@durian123:  You are so right! Amazing product and the customer service was top notch. I am so glad I went for it!

@deetroitwhat: Read some of your stuff you been posting and totally dont agree! I have seen moissanite and its Green! Your issues and opinion look to be isolated to just you. Quorri has been nothing but good to me..dont be a hater!  

Any quesitons about Quorri, pm me. be my pleasure to answer all I can!

Photos to follow as soon as I can.

Hope you read my thread… My Quorri was beautiful… for about a year.  And then it just looked like trash.

@lilsweetie:  If you go to the poster’s comments, it was an older version of Asha and step cuts have harsher lines than say a round cut. The newer versions have improved with the technology. With that said, everyone that purchases an Asha does so knowing that it is a superior cut CZ with a protective optical coating, but that it is a CZ nonetheless and will not last forever.

  • Wedding: July 2014

My fiance proposed to me last July in Thailand with a beautiful real diamond ring he purchased from the mall in Dubai. However, for over a year I had already been doing so much research on Quorri even from when they were known as Sitaragem. I had been giving him hints all along, showing him which ring I liked and everything. So when he opened the box and it was not the Quorri ring I had picked out in my head I was a little disappointed but of course said yes.

Needless to say, I could not hide my disappointment for two reasons. The center stone was very small, I believe a half carat, and the ring was too big so even when i kept trying to look at it in the mirror and make myself like it I couldn’t get the full affect because it was a full size too big. I just kept having Quorri’s website in the back of my head. So I told my fiance that I appreciated him for buying me such a beautiful ring but I would like him to take it back and I wanted us to purchase the Quorri ring. I know he was so hurt but he took the ring back to Dubai on his way back to Afghanistan and let me purchase the Quorri ring online.

Fast forward a few months later I feel like the biggest loser alive. I’ve already been feeling horrible since that day that I ruined his proposal by acting the way that I did but I feel even worse now because this Quorri ring is absolute TRASH. I ordered the Diana 2 ring and had them put the Vintage Cushion Dymond whatever great kind of man made diamond its suppose to be in it. The ring looked great when I first got it. I was so proud to wear it. I only got a 1.25 so it wouldn’t be so obvious that we couldn’t afford it. I wasn’t too keen on the color from the start, it honestly is just too white, a little yellow wouldn’t hurt. THe thing just fogs like crazy and collects dirt like a swiffer sweeper. The last time my fiance came home to visit even he said something about it. Although I felt the same way I couldn’t let him know that. But the worst part was when the head person over my battalion at work called me out and said I’m walking around with a big ol CZ on my hand in front of other soldiers I was too done. Of course I kept denying it, but inside I was so embarrassed and pissed. If a man noticed and said that, I’m sure women have noticed. I have written to the company twice and not heard anything back. What I can’t understand is how they maintain such a great BBB rating. The company is a scam. They are basically charghing ppl thousands of dollars for costume jewelery. I’m a soldier in the Army, we don’t get paid crap, ool don’t have that kind of money to just be giving away. I feel so cheated.

I’m not getting married for at least another year. But there is no way I’m letting my fiance out a band on this finger while I’m wearing this garbage. When I think back to all of this, I am the foolish one. The ring my fiance proposed to me with was everything Quorri claimed to be just in a smaller version; clear, cut brilliantly, shined, it was just beautiful. He could not get a refund for it in Dubai but the jeweler let him exchange it for some Diamond earings for himself. He won’t tell me what he spent on the ring, but it had to be wort alot because the diamond earrings he got in exchange for the ring a massive. I should have been appriciative for the ring my man cought. And in the long run I could have upgraded my genuine ring for something better. It’s a very tough pill to swallow because I really hate putting this ring on. I honestly want to work to pay my man back for the cost of the Quorri ring and then we just pick something out together and finance it. But time will tell. Lesson definitely learned, I feel like an a hole everytime I put this ring on. To the ppl who get on here and say they love theri rings. I don’t know if you work for the company of not, and I don’t know if you just got your ring. But I can only tell you, I was 100% in their corner, even told other ppl about them. I could not be more disapointed and let down, this was definitely not the way I planned to start off my engagement. Maybe some of you will have better luck with the so called man made diamonds. I’ll just stick to the real thing from now on, preferably conflict free.

@HisTXGirl:  Love that you responded to this too.  This is one of the first links that pops up when someone searches for quorri.  They should rebrand to “crappy”.

I have already responded to a copy of HisTXGirl’s message on another post..but here it is again, with some edits:

 

I purchased a ring set and my Finace and I loved it! It was well made the  DymondIX center sparkles just like an expensive diamond. We went out to a few  jewellery shops to compare (as we still weren’t sure after receiving it).   We had an overwhelming amount of compliments on the ring and the sales people  couldn’t not tell at all.  We looked at some rings that closely resembled  out style and cut and they did not compare to the brilliance.

It does get dirty with wear (as you would expect with any gemstone or  diamond), so we simply use a home steam cleaner and give it s good spraying. The  DymondIX instantly comes to life. She is still careful with the ring as we know that the hardness isn’t like a diamond. Most seem to forget that the $5000-$6000  savings is going to come from somewhere, and that’s basically the hardness.

Asha and Quorri seem to be very close. I liked Quorri better because the  settings looked to be nicer and the fast responses I received. The technology  sounds about the same. Asha has their own forum from their website so you will most likely get more reviews/photos, possitive feedback…etc. In the end, you get what you pay for, so keep that in mind with your expectations of a simulant.

HisTXGirl, i am truly sorry to hear about your situation. I have only received quick replies and great service from Quorri. Really not sure what happened on your end. Also, were you wearing your ring on the service field? These rings are really nice but probably not meant for that  type of wear (if that is what you were doing).

You should try re-contacing them and see what they can do for you.

deetroitwhat, I know you have you own strong opinion and “bad-talkin” on DLC coated stones, but eventually your Moissy will scratch accidently as well and in the end, I still would prefer a nice colorless stone instead of the J/K moissy is rated at! right back at ya….. 😛

I’m ordering earrings soon to surprise Fiance, let you know how that  goes……

@Shoppy74:  They are beautiful rings, but turn to junk in about a years’ time.

Deetroitwhat….I beleive whatever experience that happend to your ring was fairly issolated. We love our rings and have never had an issue. I have also taked to many who have the same results. You can keep ditching Quorri, but your moissanite will ALWAYS look like a greenish disco ball!!!!
