Asha is good if you saving up for a different main stone, asha will need replace in few Years . It’s a beautiful stone,  I have one at a min.  Moissanite is a forever stone.  Just about a hard as s a diamond,  but. Has a big rainbow effect.  Moissanite not for everyone but it is beautiful too.

These rings belong to another bee. The top eternity band is 3.5mm ashas and the bottom is 3mm moissanite. She bought the asha band first but it got cloudy rather quickly so she bought a similar one in moissanite. The moissanite band does show a little warmth but looks so much more clear and sparkly in comparison to the asha stones.

bek.ah:  I used to  have an Asha. It was beautiful, but I upgraded to a moissanite a few months ago. Ashas are not forever stones, which I knew going in. My Asha was very diamond-like, as long as I kept it clean. I was CONSTANTLY cleaning it, as it attracted dirt/oil like crazy and always looked dull if it wasn’t freshly cleaned. Also, my Asha was so super white it almost looked blue, and I prefer warmer stones. My moissanite has much more depth and sparkle than my Asha did.

Asha’s are basically well cut cz’s which have a coating to protect them. They seem to be very blue-white. As others said, they will basically wear out over a couple years and will need to be replaced.

My Asha had that steely blue-gray thing going on when I had it out in full sun. I didn’t care for the look. I found myself spinning it around toward my palm when I was at outdoor activities.
