I love the look of good quality diamonds for their fire,lustre,brilliance,hardness etc.So when I found Moissanite & read that it actually has more fire,lustre & brilliance than diamonds & it”s a forever stone in terms of hardness,I was sold 🙂 Moissanite is everything I love in diamonds but more so.I have collected quite a few moissy’s & although I do own diamonds,I would never buy diamond again 😀

Do any of you regret getting a moissy for your e-ring? Not at all. The ring was so much more affordable than any wedding set I have owned. If a diamond was the only option in the world I would have probably went without an engagement ring and just wore a wedding band this time around. 

Are you unhappy with the color? 
I have never noticed a yellowish color with mine. It does get darker in low light situations but so have the diamond rings I have owned. 

Is it too sparkly (does it look fake) 
I love it on days it is exceptionally sparkly. I have noticed a time or two when it has looked a tad on the glassy side but typically that’s when I need to clean it which I rarely do.

it not holding up well? 
No problems. I wear it 24/7. I shower, sleep, clean, work everything with it on.  

Do you wish you would have gotten a colored gemstone? 
Initially I wanted an opal because of the colors and how pretty they are and even though I have a RHR that I wear all the time I was afraid the opal wouldn’t be durable enough long term. I like opals, onyx and clear stones. I also like mystic fire topaz because of the colors of it.

Do you wish your ring didn’t look like a diamond for ethical reasons (aka: do you wish your ring said to people looking at it “I’m not a diamond”)? 

Besides the typical people I see at work, I also see around 20 patients a day. Noone commented on my diamond set when I wore it and rarely people comment on the ring I wear now. Most people are not concerned with what other people have on their finger lol. I do get an occassional comment on my opal ring because those people love opals.  

Is there anything else you don’t like about having moissanite? 
I am happy with everything about it.
