    I’m not a huge fan of halo’s but if you love them who cares what your friends think, it’s YOURS to wear forever.  Mine is a diamond but similar to the Blake style.  If you love the halo look the halo under the diamond like mine is always an option!

    Depends on what you prefer, size or color.

    A high quality diamond that’s .60 with a halo the ring will look larger.  But the center stone itself will still look small.

    A 1.5 carat moissy will be larger but may not be as “bright” as the diamond because it’s not a diamond.  What kind of moissy is it?  F1? Classic?  Brilliant?  OEC?

    I will never buy diamonds again. They have very little resale value and imo just aren’t worth too much other than the stigma attached to them. I’d much prefer a moissanite that looks similar, sparkles more, stays clean longer, cheaper and will last a lifetime. Pick which one you will be happy with forever ๐Ÿ˜‰

    whyiotter :  This is a very personal choice but I voted moissanite, I care more about the overal look of the ring than whether or not it’s a diamond (and btw, did you know that moissanites are both stronger and more sparkly than diamonds?!). So I’d go for your dream ring.

    Here are some oval moissy rings which I think are stunning, have a look at the videos:

    I would go with the better quality diamond vs the bigger moissonite

    I would go diamond if it’s excellent quality a .60 if cut well (check bow tie on that oval and make sure it’s minimal) will have a lot of bling. I LOVE ovals in halos and rose gold will be so dreamy. 

    Also look at Lauren B and their videos comparing oval diamonds to oval moissanite in their opinion ovals are hard to replicate meaning they look least like a diamond. I mention this because you brought up the “fake” look concern.

    This style is so stunning

    I would choose the smaller diamond if I had to pick just one. I have both diamonds and moissy. Diamonds stay cleaner longer/are easier to get clean, b/c moissy gets a rainbow film that needs to be maintained with scrubbing/silver polish. I also prefer the crisp sparkle and luster of diamonds over moissy. A well cut and polished diamond outshines a moissy imo (when I compare the stones I have). I do love my moissanite jewelry though, b/c it is a fun stone with such personality and you get a lotta bling for your buck.
