- Wedding: November 2012
Last night hubby was so excited to give me my Valentine’s Day present we decided to open it right then (we also ate about half the cupcakes we were saving for today).
here it is:
It’s a 3.5mm shared prong 5 stone from Moissaniteco.
Anyways, I hope my initial impressions will be helpful to anyone considering moissy.
First off, you can’t tell in the picture, but the stones are fireballs, even at this small size. The sparkle is very rainbowy and colorful – in the sun, it’s almost like a hologram. Much more rainbowy than diamond or cz – I’d say those two stones tend to have a whiter shine. I get why some people describe moissy as looking like a disco ball – it’s not a bad description. I love that level of fieriness, but I could see how that could be a turnoff and “fake looking” to some people.
Here’s the ring next to a Berricle cz ring with the same size stones:
Again, you can’t tell in the picture, but the cz looks dull and glassy next to it – in person, there really is no comparison. The moissy throws far more rainbows and sparkles. I did include this picture, though, because you can see the color’s not noticeably darker than the cz. For the most part, the moissies are pretty white. In different lighting, though, the stones can look different colors – so far I’ve seen them look grayish, minty, and a Gatorade yellow color. I think the chameleon aspect’s pretty cool, but if you can see those color changes at this small size, I personally would get an enhanced moissy if I was getting a much larger stone.
The ring itself is very comfy and low profile, more so than it looks in the stock photo. a low-profile ring’s exactly what I wanted, so I’m really happy with it. The ring’s palladium which feels quite lightweight, comparable to silver. The lightness might make it feel cheap to some people, but I don’t mind it.
I’m totally in love with moissy, and if I wanted a special, durable piece of jewelry, it would be my first choice. I love the performance, durability, and price tag.
