Are you talking about the green/grey/pink options, or the different grades of white?

Mine is from MoissaniteCo, their most basic moissanite option which is classified as “near colorless” (their competitor for the C&C forever classic stone). I’d say it’s still really clear, and VERY sparkly. I don’t think the fire changes based on “clarity” of the stone, they all have double refraction so they’re all rainbow-y in a lot of lights.

Here are pics of mine in a few different lights:

interior ambient daylight

 

FULL bright sunlight

Interior florescent

 

I wish I could upload a video, because pictures don’t do moissanite justice in any light.

vb93 :  I’m glad my input was helpful then, I was hoping you didn’t mean actual colors otherwise I’m no help at all 😂

thank you! I really haven’t noticed any yellowish hues. In some lights it can look slightly grayish, but that’s always in dim lighting that any stone would look darker in. I’ve seen the official C&C comparison pictures, and side by side there is probably a slight difference, but standing alone, it is a BEAUTIFUL stone with no flaws. I do not regret not getting the NOT  upgraded stone in the slightest. And realistically, the “low grade” moissanite is easily comparable to (and arguably better that) a very high grade diamond.

Colorless IMO looks like chalk white to me. Unless you are color sensative, i wouldnt worry about going down onw shade.

I have a colorless center stone from moissaniteco. It’s the hearts and arrows forever one. I love how clear it is and it shows no yellow at all. It shoots off crazy beautiful rainbows in certain lighting, but inside is mostly white with SO much shine and sparkle even when dirty! Here’s a few pics. Not the best quality. The top is in direct sunlight, the second is house lighting and the third is a cloudy day outside. It’s also reflecting some of my shirts colors in that one.

vb93 :  You’ll have to read the test chart-I dont know what that means for the specific one you did.  You dont need a test to know what kind of color you like to look at.  If you like bright white stones go colorless.  If you don’t mind the rainbow look then go off white g/h/i.

I’m pretty sensitive so in white and rose gold I like a colorless stone, in yellow gold colour doesn’t bother me much (I like the look of yellow on yellow). As far as colourless/near colourless is concerned, I don’t think the difference will affect the colour of the refraction, but you might notice a difference in the colour of the stone itself. It really just depends on what you like.

vb93 :  if it’s a platinum setting I’d default to a colourles stone, but another consideration is what colour the halo diamonds will be. I think that I’d go more crazy with mismatched moissy/diamond colour than with a slightly yellowish stone next to the platinum.

Maybe your jeweler can show you examples but use DEF and a GHI diamonds since they don’t carry moissanite, just so you can see the difference in colour next to a similar ring.

As long as a colourless centre stone won’t make the halo diamonds look yellow, I’d go colourless in platinum. But that’s my personal preference!
