The other thing to consider is what color they can come in. I know a lot of Bees have been preferring the near colorless vs. colorless.

To my eye the cut looks nicer than the one in the schubach video above, which may be beautiful IRL, just hard to tell. Does True Gem sell loose stones? How about a weekend trip to Dallas with your SO? You’ll probably fall in love if you see it in person.

michellelynn9175 :  Well, at least you’re narrowing down the options! When I look at the Harro Gem IG videos they do look surprisingly white with little rainbow fire, but I feel like they’ve manipulated the lighting and surrounding environment to make that happen. I can do the same thing at home with my moissanite by filming it in my white bathroom while wearing white. They don’t look very lively to my eye. Not a lot of scintillation going on and maybe that’s because they’re cut to reduce fire?

When I watch the JHollywood IG the Zaya looks like a bettter performing stone but they’re filmed with lots of color around them which they are picking up. It’s really hard to make a fair comparison. Marketing strategies aside, I think moissanite is moissanite and it’s going to return rainbow fire in certain lighting but a poorly cut moissanite is not going to return white light very well. Just my two cents.

The Juliette with modifications looks like it will be perfect!

michellelynn9175 :  Interesting. The Harro definitely looks more similar to the Zaya in the video as I suspected. Which cut do you prefer? I say go with you feelings, even if it’s only a slight preference for one over the other. Moissanite is a very pretty gem and I’m quite sure you are going to fall in love with wearing one. I did have some initial disappointment that it’s not exactly like a diamond but it’s hard not to love it now that I’ve gotten to know it! What color grade are you looking for? Your Daussi inspiration is quite white!
