im new to the forum, and my future Fiance an i are looking into buying a simulated diamond for my ring (which im completely fine and excited about) but my only problem is- i have only ever seen a simulated diamond in the flesh from http://www.secrets-shhh.com they are quite beautiful, while at the same time have been doing my reserch online from other brands.
at the moment- im torn between Quorri and Asha from the betterthandiamond.com site.
i have never seen a Quorri or Asha in real life- only pics people have posted so it is a little hard to tell how sparkly etc and how pure the colouring is of their stones. Also would like to know is anyone has bought either an Asha or Quorri stone and had it gone cloudy after a short amount of time?
if anyone could please please help me out, post picture of their rings specifying whether Asha or Quorri that would be great!

I’ve read a ton of posts in the past that Quorri is a terrible choice. Also from what I’ve read, Asha will only last you a few years even if you take good care of it.
if you’re set on not spending too much money on a sim, and are ok with it lasting only a few years, from what I’ve read, Asha is a much better choice. if you want a “forever stone” and are ok with spending a little more on it, you might want to look into Moissanite.
there are a ton of discussions on weddingbee regarding these stones. use the search bar to find old threads.

Ashas are diamond coated cz’s while quorri seems to be standard cz. At the end of the day, they’re all types of cz, and I’d expect to replace them every few years (or a bit longer if you’re gentle). if you’re sold on cz, I’d get a diamond or moissanite setting and get the cz set in that.

abirdword and nerdybird, thats totally not true!! I own a Quorri and they are truly diamond coated and will last as long if not longer than an Asha. I beleive you have them confused with Nexus that sells plain CZ. Further more, they guarantee it their products, unlike Asha that has NONE!! Yup, no warranty on their stones. good luck with what one…..In regards to Moissanite, they are a bit harder but i am not a fan of the over sparkle and that yellow hue since they can only get to H+ color.
