futuremrsvezina :  i bought a grey one. I think it’s a bit hit and miss. I have seen some ebay moissanites with beautiful fire and brilliance and others not so much.  My eBay moissy compared to my forever brilliant moissy is a bit dull, but perhaps I was unlucky compared to the other bees.

futuremrsvezina :  yes, they’re WAY too good to be true. I own two of them…an “off white” and a baby blue. Horribly cut, minimal sparkle. They look more like glass. I wouldn’t even pay $5 for them if I had another chance.

I’ve posted on the cheap moissanite thread. I bought a few on Ebay and I think that they are really pretty and for what you are paying, a great bargain. I’ve only set one into an inexpensive jamming gems setting and the other two I’m waiting to figure out what settings I want.

Blue/green set into a solitaire silver setting from jamming gems:

Grey, not set:

White (but not a true white, it definitely changes colors), also not set:

Next to one of my RHR’s:

 

Edit: I got them from diamondtreasure on eBay

I love all my “cheap” ebay moissies. I’m no expert on cuts, but they sparkle like crazy. The white is a g-h color and can sometimes hint an icy blue, but usually top white. I made sure to buy from a US seller with a good return policy. I paid less than $100 for each of them. The purple is 1.7ct VVSI1 the green is 3ct VVSI1 and the white is 1.4ct VVSI1

You can see the icy blue hints in this picture. Sorry for hyjacking this post. I just wanted you to see what I mean.

I had my entire ring including my 2 Ct center moissy made from a seller on eBay from India. Risky I know. But I LOVE IT. The moissy is a bit more yellow tinted and not cut as well as other options I’m sure but my ring was under 700 dollars and let me tell you it’s a stunner. In a few years we MAY upgrade to a Charles and Colvard moissy but I’m not sure it’s worth it to me.
