Moissy’s are gorgeous but the larger you go the more unlike a diamond it will look. If you are getting a moissy to look like a diamond you don’t want to go to a 2 carat size.

I am getting a Forever One 2ct square brilliant moissy. I haven’t seen it in person, but the jeweler who ordered it and will be setting it sent me a picture and it is BEAUTIFUL! I’ll post the picture in a little when I find it. But I have seen other FO moisanites around 2ct and especially compared to actual diamonds, there is no yellow at all! I compared them to diamonds side by side and the diamonds looked a lot more yellow/warm with more imperfections. Moisanites were the clear choice for me, I think you’ll love it!

beevermont : found it! It’s not a professional quality picture or anything, just taken with his cellphone. Then the picture below is the stock photo of the setting we ordered 😁

FutureDrAtkins : “The meteorite story is kind of a farse. Yes, trace amounts of SiC were discovered at the crash site, but no natural moissanite is gem quality.
Moissanite being more ethical is kind of a toss up if you’re not also using recycled metal or if you have diamond pave like many moissanite rings have.
Moissanite can oxidize and develop an “oil slick stain.”
If you’re ok with all of this, then get a moissanite. They definitely have more fire than diamonds”
Yep, you’re right..

The oil slick stain can happen, but get a platinum prongs and just clean it with a sunshine cloth every few days. RG and yg should be fine, but this frequent buffing will harm plated white gold. No stain on my Amora OEC. I love it. I’m a gem nerd and find it looks like my OEC diamond 90% of the time. Have a look at jyb jewels for OEC yumminess.

i agree about the meteorite story being a farse, however I still think it’s fair to claim moissanite is “ethical”. It’s created in a lab, it’s not mined from the earth. Just because it isn’t “recyled” doesn’t mean it isn’t ethical. I would also say a lab diamond is more ethical than a mined one.
full disclosure – i have a f1 stone. all i wanted was a sparky ring without breaking the bank. i didn’t buy it for ethical reasons, nor do i have a love of astronomy as many people seem to have. cheap sparkles are my jam, what can I say 🙂

This is my 1.71ct near colorless OEC. I love it and have never regretted my choice. I had the big ass diamond and it honestly gave me so much anxiety to wear that much money on my finger. Is my moissanite 100% EXACTLY the same as my diamond? No. But it’s beautiful in its own right and I get so much enjoyment out of wearing it that I could not care less.

Thanks for this… nothing wrong with wanting a more cost effective sparkly thing! Not sure why some bees are so intent on defaming moissy. I say get what you want!
I love my moissy :).

djbeats : paigerino :
actually I was simply quoting FutureDrAtkins post (that’s what quotation marks typically mean lol!)
I do not believe she was “defaming” moissanite.. she was just cutting through the false marketing and posting the genuine facts about it….

I wasn’t referring to you. Both diamonds and moissanites are marketing scams… engagement rings in general are. Just let people be excited about what they want!

I have a 2.5 carat forever 1, no one would doubt it’s a diamond. It’s a gorgeous sparkly rock, who actually gets out a lens and analyzes it lol. Regardless of what people on this forum say, you cannot detect a moissy on its own without a lens.
We can easily afford a diamond this size so we don’t get any doubts or weird comments. We just prefer to spend our money on other things like epic vacations.
