I prefer diamonds, but I think your moissy looks great too! They’re both beautiful! 🙂

I like the stone that looks more clear and is bigger… which one is that?

I think that is a normal charactoristic of moissy, but I’m not sure. I’ve seen in it videos, especially the emerald cut, where it just appears to go glassy/shallow/clear until it is moved again

Actually, even ideal cut diamonds can also go “dark” in some lighting. There are some threads about this on Pricescope. So, it is not a diamond v. moissanite thing, but rather a your diamond v. your moissanite thing. I have and do own diamonds and moissanite and while I agree they do perform differently when next to each other in the same conditions, this is not actually one of the reasons I personally would say that.

To answer your question, I am first curious about your diamond clarity and what the grading inclusions are (and if there are “clouds not shown”) and who graded it.

amb1030:  I can only go by your images, so this can be a totally inaccurate observation, but I am just wondering if perhaps some clouds or internal graining are affecting the transparency of your diamond and that white you see is actually related to that and how it affects light performance. If it is not actually graded by a reputable it is hard to know what might be going on!

 

But here are some threads on this phenomenon of diamonds going dark from Pricescope. These I think focus more on direct sunlight, where diamonds with great light return will go dark but give off a lot of fire, but I have seen threads about it in other lighting too.

amb1030:  I have a moissanite rhr and while it’s pretty in certain lighting, it goes flat much more often than my diamond. I feel like the moissanite needs very specific light to look stunning. I don’t wear it much because of that.

amb1030:  To me both look great! I love dainty rings. The more time passes, the more beauty I find in smaller stones. I asked for a moissanite for my e-ring and can’t wait to enjoy and follow it’s moodiness in different environments!

By the way, what kind of moissy is that? F1, FB? I don’t think you’ve mentioned this. If you have, then sorry for my cluelessness!
