Hey all!!! I am in love with moissanite and have convinced my bf that I want one for an ering but I couldn’t wait for him to purchase the ring to see the Amora Enhanced from Moissaniteco.com so I ordered a stone. It’s beautiful!!! My ring will be a 7.5 mm and I ordered a 5 mm to check out and it is way better than I expected. The cut is beautiful and the sparkle is amazing. I viewed it in flourescent lighting, indoor lighting and outside on a gray/overcast day (waiting for a sunny day!). The stone reacted similar to my diamonds as far as the sparkle in those settings.
This stone definitely has a very slight warmth to it but there is no yellow color. (and I worked with diamonds for years so I can easily detect color on stones that most people don’t see) It is a high “H” color. My friend has a 1.5c VS1 G color diamond that her husband spent $9k on…I can handle the tiny tiny bit of warmth for the low price that my future fi will spend on my ring.
I have been a fan of moissanite since I first saw it in JC Penny’s years ago. I never bought it though because I thought it was expensive for an immitation stone. When I looked at it in stores the sales associates could never really explain to me what moissanite is. One lady told me it was a high quality durable cz…It wasn’t until later that I learned more about moissanite and what a quality stone it is. ….sadly, It’s not in stores now because it didn’t sell that much and I think the education for the public wasn’t there. 🙁 Thank goodness for BTD and Moissaniteco!!!
If anyone is even slightly interested in moissanite as an option I highly recommend purchasing a loose enhanced stone from moissaniteco.com. You can view it then return it for just a small fee. You will fall in love!
