What was your first thought when you saw your ring in person? Were you overjoyed or disappointed? I ask because sometimes we pick things apart after we have them for a little bit but for me personally if I loved it right away I know that was the genuine feeling. It seems like you are having doubts now but how did you feel when you first saw it?

catkins :  I do the same thing so I completely understand! Maybe try calling customer service to tell them your concerns?

I really believe it’s the lighting. You won’t be able to see h&a when you look directly at it without a special tool. H&A is just a cut style that optimizes the sparkle. I think you are over hinking over thinking it. Moissanite is different than diamond so it behaves differently. Some light sources are more complimentary than others for it, I own both moissanite and diamonds so I can speak to this. I’m wondering if you are picking it apart because you may be let down by it because it behaves differently than a diamond,or if it’s just  mind clean thing because you know it’s not diamond and it’s subconsiously bothering you. Either way it is as lovely ring but only you can decide if it’s right for you.

In an excellent cut diamond, you CAN see the arrows. In bright light they tend to be darker and in low light, they are brighter. One cannot see heart without a special tool, but the arrows should be apparent. Without pictures in better lighting, no one here can tell you whether it is a high performer or not. Diamond have ideal proportions, but I do not know how or if that applies to other stones. Ultimately, if you aren’t happy with it, don’t let the return/exchange window pass you by.

echomomm :  True  because in disperse or indirect lighting I have been able to see the arrows in my stone. I also believe the lighting in her pics is not optimal to capture the arrows or properly display the stone. You can slightly see them in A few of my pics

They are very hard to capture but I think I can slightly see them here. In the first pic my lime green shirt is reflecting.

I can’t see the arrows, but in that lighting I wouldn’t expect to.

In the first pic I can, but it looks like you are photographing in pretty soft / diffused lighting.  I have a H&A cut Moissanite, and the arrows don’t pop out in all lighting. 

The circle in the middle of your stone is the table reflection.  A fish eye is a girdle reflection, its much larger and encircles the entire table.

I  cant see the H&A, but I think you need a magnifier to see that. Otherwise your ring is pretty!

It could just be the lighting. Mine is a certified h&a from MoissaniteCo and sometimes I can get them to pop out more then in other lighting conditions.

catkins :  I’m gonna be honest. It does seem to lack brilliance. Not fish eye but just…idk I’d see if they could send a diff stone. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Maybe it’s just the lighting idk. It’s just very dark.
