Moissanite. I just ordered a moissanite ring on sale. Its tough, sparkly and often tests as a diamond. But so much cheaper. So much.

I think the Amora Gem. Moissanite color is too distinct.

On Price Scope the experts say the best diamond alternative that looks like a diamond is Z or natural white Zircon. Both are softer stones……and will need more care than a diamond or moisy, but they have a more realistic diamond look.

Amora gem ultra! I own diamonds and have owned moissanite. The amora gem is much more diamond like than moissanite. Mine is never milky!

Amora Gem Ultra! I’ve got an F colored one that never looks “milky” or “too white”. If you’re concerned and want a less bright stone I’d go with an E or G colored. They are beautiful stones and they react so well to all different lightings. I just love mine!

I would go with a high quality cz. In the one carat range it will look like a diamond and gives you the best price point. Try mystique gems Palm beach.

I bought a 1 CT enhanced moissanite stone and returned it. The grey tone and rainbow sparkles did not look like a diamond to me. I replaced it with an asha until I decide If I want a diamond vs amora gem. I just have an issue paying $1500 for the AG. At that price it makes more sense to buy a lab created diamond.

tsavoy:  try contacting better than diamond and tell them your price range. They have more stock then they show they can find something in your price range. I just bought a 2.22 F for 1400 so you can def find one cheaper tham that for 1 ct;)

bridetobefor2016:  I have researched this a lot!! Amora gem ended up the answer for me. There are pros and cons to each gem but I love the fact its a forever stone. And I loved the cut on the round better than the round moissy.

Have you considered getting an estate or antique ring?  They are typically much less expensive than a new stone and setting of equal quality?
