sparkleenthusiast :  You don’t have to anything you are not comfortable with, but I made the suggestion because no one can give you a real opinion on the sparkle without a video. Diamonds will be less sparkly than moissanite, but diamonds are still supposed to sparkle.

If you did want to, I’d suggest:

  1. make a new gmail address that is not affiliated with your real name
  2. use that account to upload a video to youtube (there must be instructions online, I’m sure it’s easy to do)
  3. mark it as unlisted (only people with the link will be able to see it)
  4. make a new post soliciting opinions on the sparkle…I think you’d get real opinions on the sparkle if you did that.

If you did decide to make a video, you can do it in comparison to the moissanite like you have it in the pictures. You can also walk around to different lighting situations or make separate videos and splice them together or just have three different videos if you want (outside light, indirect light, indoor light). A random example of a video I found on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVdtqtD3Vu4

You can even remove the video after a couple of weeks when the post dies down. Totally up to you, but I think that’s how you might get the most useful advice about the diamond sparkle.
