lauralei101 :  I had an OEC moissanite and the “fuzziness” is what drove me to sell it. It did look really crisp and diamondlike outside in natural light, but inside…bleh. I’d love an OEC diamond one day.

sunburn :  I have the H&A moissy from Jonathan (his ideal modern cut) and it’s pretty. It looks very very similar to the Amora. I still need to figure what to set it in.

lauralei101 :  it wasn’t AV and I guess it could vary brand to brand, but I see it in all moissanite. It’s just a characteristic of the stone. Trust me, I wish I loved it but it bothered me too much.

lauralei101 :  Did you wind up buying? Sorry I didn’t reply, I left on vacation. When I look at the stone by itself, the fuzziness is not readily apparent. However, because it’s not set yet and I don’t carry it around with me, I haven’t really had a chance to examine it under a variety of lighting conditions.

It definitely looks “warmer”- even at the same color grade – than my diamond because of the fuzziness. But that’s really not a problem for me. I love warm diamonds.

If you are asking because you want to pass it off as a diamond, I think it’s definitely passable. If a friend of mine was wearing my moissanite on an ering, I would never guess it wasn’t a diamond, unless I held my own ring next to it. 

My setting is by Steven Kirsch. But I also love (and eventually want a ring by ) CVB, and Jonathon now partners with her for a slight price reduction on her settings through him. She sets TONS of OEC moissy and diamonds.

lauralei101 :  I know this is an old post, but did you ever decide on what to go with?

lauralei101 :  yea I heard they are hard to come by. For the size I’m looking for and facet pattern I’m keen on,I’m thinking I’ll just end up going actual antique. Although the AVC moissies are pretty, Please post pics if you end up getting one anyways. Good luck! 🙂
