I know this is old, but I wanted to add my two cents to it.
I looked at engagement rings and I saw one that had an unenhanced moissanite as the center stone with a halo of diamonds and diamonds on the band. The moissanite looked yellowish compared to the diamonds, but then I tried on a ring that was all moissanite (same style), and it all “flows” the same and it doesn’t look yellowish at all because they’re all the same color. I love that ring and I really hope that’s the one my future Fiance gets me ^.^

Wanting a visible inclusion? To make the stone unique? Congratulations on your approach. I wish I’d thought of it. You’re not crazy but very sane.

What does that mean?! Lol I really can’t tell if you’re mocking or not…

Absolutely not mocking or sarcastic!
I may raise points of view that people don’t agree with but I never make snarky comments against individuals.
Actually I think that SakuraBlossomBee has a lot of sense. One flawless diamond is much like another (at least up to 10x magnification) but diamonds with flaws are very individualistic, a bit like people I suppose.
If I organised the diamond trade I would do things very differently. I would:
Sell diamond with pretty flaws, maybe delicate feathers up the side of the stone;
Sell colours D to Z rather than just D to K;
Cut for beauty and not for weight;
Have a greater variety of designs and designers;
Encourage people to think of finger coverage of just under to just over a third as ideal;
Experiment with different cuts;
Encourage people to think of diamonds as fun rather than status symbols.
Already I will probably have offended half of the people on Weddingbee by saying all this but pleased be assured I do my best never to make comments about individuals or make personal attacks.

You and I, we should be friends. I SO agree with every word you just said!

Does anyone’s moissanite look blue tinged in dark/dull lighting? I’ve read lots of comments about moissanite having a yellow/warm undertone but mine seems to have the opposite! Just wondering if this is common

I have moissanite earrings. And I can tell the difference between my diamond ones and my moissanite ones. The diamond ones do sparkle more. I do find the moissanite ones looking a little dull at times.
