    @ritsi_bitsi: Hello! Welcome to the Moissy family :] you’ll find we are pretty open & definitely savvy, as several of us saved THOUSANDS on engagement rings, amungst other things ;]

    So, just to put my experience out there, I have a 3ct. round brilliant enhanced moissy, and it is literally sooo white. Now I am the type to really dislike anything that I think is mildly “defective” and a yellow stone just wouldn’t have done it for me. But that being said, no matter what size moissanite I would have gotten, I would had it enhanced because the cost is so small, and if it could even make the stone look minutely more white (for me BETTER), then I was game to pony up the cash.

    Plus, you aren’t getting a round brilliant, and princess cuts are known to show a little color around the edges from what I’ve heard, so for about $100 more to ensure that you did everything you could to have a beautifully white stone, would it feel worth it to you? It did to me :]

    Yes do it. Anything over 3.5 mm is better of enhanced. Why take a chance?

    Mine is 1.5 ct round and it is not enhanced and is in the G-H color range.  I had the chance to see my actual stone in person before purchasing and enhancement was certinly not necessaary!!  My jeweler said anything done after market (such as enhancing) voids the original warranty of Charles and Colvard.  I’m not sure how much the warranty covers, but it’s worth looking into!

    Princess cut should definitely be enhanced, if possible. That shape can show more color than round brilliant or cushion.
