lisag103 :  Just putting aside the shipping issue, the 1 carat halo has not been available since launch and they aren’t giving any info about when it might become available. If you are looking for a white round stone, the biggest you can get right now is half carat from the solitaire pendant. If you wanted the halo look, you can only get the smaller one, I think it’s 1/4 ctw.

I got a hold of the pendant with the 7/8 carat white round & the 1/6 carat blue diamond. Picked up today, also had my ER sized down & cleaned. The ring is set with a 6.5mm near colorless H&A C&C moissanite. The necklace is Lightbox lab diamond. Pictures were taken outside today, in a very sunny car this afternoon.

My intention was to replace the center stone in my ring with the lab diamond. I’m not sure if I can see any difference between them with my eyes.

 I know that some of you have strong feelings about moissanite. I’m asking for your honest opinion, if you notice that it’s much different optically. For me, it doesn’t make much financial sense to replace it if it doesn’t look better.

mollyjane79 :  The Lightbox stone is pretty, but I personally prefer the look of your moissanite.

mollyjane79 :  Tbh, the diamond looks subpar against your moissy. Definitely keep the moissanite.

mollyjane79 :  If you want “mind clean”, I’d replace the moissy with the diamond. But honestly? I prefer your moissy. It has better clarity than the Lightbox diamond.

I’m actually very shocked at the quality of this Lightbox diamond. Its performance pales in comparison to the C&C.

This is what DeBeers is withholding from us?

Thanks All, you have confirmed what I see… my moissanite looks better to me, IMO, at least to my eyes.

It may not be the best photograph of the Lightbox stone, to be fair; it’s just an old iPhone camera. The diamonds were very sparkly, but the blue looks more like light grey to me. The moissanite sparkles the same in the sun as the lab diamond, no extra rainbows. I’m going to return the diamonds. It doesn’t seem like an upgrade to me.
