A jeweler once said that a moissanite can be identified as a diamond by a diamond detector so beware. The stone can be coated in a thin diamond layer. Also, for the price, it’s highly unlikely that it is a diamond. One way to tell a diamond and a moissanite apart is the way the stone shines. A moissanite, like a CZ, shines with many more colors of the rainbow. If you think the way it shines is like a rainbow then it is not a diamond. The way a diamond shines is, surprisingly, more understated. A diamond can be fiery of course, but the way it shines is not very “rainbowy” it is more white and blue, not all colors of the rainbow. Hope this helps!

Turn the flashlight on on your phone or regular flashlight lol and look for yellow and green sparkles. Moissanites have a bunch while diamonds don’t. Also, do you have a feeling that you can see deep down, to the bottom of the stone just by looking at it from the top? (without flash) But just looking at your pictures I think it’s not a moissanite.

MrsSzan :  Did you buy the ring or diamond second hand?  If So that would explain the low price. Also,  I’ve owned a couple of moissanits as well as diamonds and based off of your pics I don’t think it’s moissanite. So since the stone was tested and didn’t come back as cz, then I think it’s safe to say you got a great deal on a beautiful diamond!  Congrats!

I think it looks like a diamond. It doesn’t have that plastic like look of moissanite.

In a moissanite you shouldn’t have to LOOK for yellow green purple sparkles, they are very obviously THERE. lol That’s probably the biggest giveaway. So it’s not a moissy 🙂

crystaleena :  Thank you! Yes they look kinda like plastic. Until you turn a flaslight on them. When they say they sparkle like a disco ball – that’s no joke! and youtube videos usually try to make them look the same, but here is this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aiUnAzknrM

the moissanite has a crazy fire while the diamond has a subtle white shimmer.
