@walnutgirl:  yes, Charles & Colvard makes an instrument to distinguish the two stones.  Moissanaite is 9.5 on the Mohs scale.  I purchased mine from a local, master IJO jeweler.  I’ve heard a lot of bees have good luck with MoissaniteCo., but I have not used them personally.  Hope this helps.

@walnutgirl:  I’ve heard that to the trained eye they don’t look the same. Moissanite shoots different colors.

I personally haven’t seen a moissy in real life, but I bet that the majority of people probably can’t tell it’s not a diamond.

There are about a zillion threads on here that debate passing a moissy off as a diamond.

@walnutgirl:  I’ve seen them. To the naked eye I do think they look different.

Moissanite shoots off rainbow sparkles, diamonds shoot off white sparkles.

@missporkchops:  I think they look different. I have a moissanite, my sister has diamond. My mum sister think they look the same other than In the car my sister and I can see my stone is warmer because hers is colourless. I can see more colours in mine. Like a holographic effect. 

Many people tell me my diamond is gorgeous and they are surprised to know its not diamond. They think my earrings are diamond too though and they’re CZ. I don’t know people who give much of a damn about jewelry to be fair. 

My grandmother was satisfied with my ring. My family tend to hold all gemstones in the same regard and had no opinions about which one I should choose although they thought i’d want a blue one since I love blue.
