Just got engaged on Saturday and IN LOVE with my moissy ring. It’s princess cut 5.5mm (approx 1 ct) in platinum, size 4. Forever Brilliant “super bright” stone. Snapped this pic while eating lunch to send to a friend who asked for a pic and it turnd out well, so here you go!

I haven’t given her the ring yet (with a 7mm FB) yet so I won’t post a photo. 

But this video is very accurate of what it looks like under halogens 

I bought a master CZ kit and I would say it probably just makes it into the H category face up. And I from the side. However this is set in rose gold so you do get a bit of reflection of that. 

I haven’t seen any videos like this of Amora Gem but all the ones I have, it seems to have a more constant light return, and not a twinkling sparkle.

It will be interesting to see what happens when Charles and Colvards patents expire because they aren’t making huge profits as it is. (I went through their annual report) 

 

I hope that they will continue to make enough to produce this gorgeous product and tear apart the ridiculous diamond industry. We are quite lucky with our incomes and I could have bought a 10-15 grand diamond. However when I looked at diamonds all over town I realised they are not rare at all, and to be honest they don’t sparkle as well as Fb moissanite.

I believe I could tell the difference between a moissanite and a diamond quite easily, though anyone who hasn’t been studying stones for 3 months is unlikely to question it unless they’re a jeweller or something.

Oh I forgot to add, since we didn’t get a diamond I’m spending the rest on going to bora bora to ask her! And I also bought myself a huge TV!

I know this thread is kind of old, but I just have to say thank you to all of you who shared pictures and stories about your moissanite rings. I had never heard of it until joining this site, and my boyfriend was skeptical at first – but after reading all of the wonderful things you wrote and seeing all of the gorgeous rings, we took the leap of faith and ordered a moissy e-ring. I finally got to see it in person when he proposed last week, and it is too beautiful for words!

My mom is a bit more traditional and was upset when I first told her about moissys because she didn’t want me to have a “fake diamond,” as she called it – she didn’t really understand what it was. But when the ring was on my hand next to her diamond, they looked identical (except mine is bigger, ha!), and she told me she couldn’t see any difference and that she really loves it.

Choosing moissanite allowed me to have the ring of my dreams without my boyfriend going into debt for an identical ring, and I could not be more thankful for that. I’d love to pay it forward, so if anyone has any questions about the ring, the stone, or anything about dealing with MoissaniteCo, I’d be happy to share my experience with you! 

My stone is a Forever Brilliant 1.5 ct equivalent in a 6-prong round solitaire setting from MoissaniteCo (sol238d) with a white gold band. I’m a size 5.5.

nowmarriedgirl:  Go ahead and copy your friends!  My sister-in-law also has princess cut and I really don’t care if she thinks I copied her, it’s a beautiful setting and I’ll be the one looking at it most of the time.  It’s set in platinum, which is a very nice metal for moissanite. Maybe the lighting made it look more rose, but it’s pretty white/silver in person.

sondrapauline:  i know, so true. and its a piece that you’ll have forever. plus princess cut is a classic cut. not like its totally unique and im ripping off their special cut…. i have a princess cut now but im upgrading from it, its not a true solitaire and iv always been unhappy with it. is the moissanite princess cut a good colour? iv heard different things about the different cuts of moissanite. i think id go platinum too. nice and solid and white gold goes yellow after a while, always have to clean it.
