1. I have 5 moissies, four are set into rings, and I’m saving/shopping for the last setting. The shapes are cushion, 3 rounds and an emerald. I live where we have extremely hard water and have not had the stain issue. All my moissies are classic as far as I know. I do however keep my rings clean all the time. So if build up is what causes it, it never has had the chance.
2. None of my rings have been chipped or cracked or scratched at all.
3. No, never look glass like to me, but again mine are classic so I do think that may affect it. If ever I wonder, just holding them next to CZ definately shows they are not glass-like.
skipping to 8: I don’t think you will have any trouble with that size you’re looking to get. Also, the colors you’re looking at are so much whiter than classic that you’ll probably never notice any yellowish/creamish colors.
9. I don’t regret it all. Moissy came along during the 20 years of my marriage where I was not looking at jewelry for myself. When our 20th came around I decided I’d like to have a new sparkly. Shocked at what the prices were in diamond of what I liked, coming here to the Bee by accident, I discovered moissy. Never looked back. Would not drop that kind of money on diamond based on our financials. That is to say, if we came into enough money I would, but not at this time.
Moissy allowed me to have large stones, 3 of them at 1.5 ct equiv., one at .50 and one at .84. Three of my moissies are from India and are gorgeous. I got one dud out of four, so tickled. That dud is not counted here (so really, 6 stones but the dud was so awful I trashed it).
The ONLY thing I don’t like – I got my main rings in spring of last year and where I live the light is very bright, intense and almost zero cloudy days for about 8 months. So the yellow tint to my older classic stones became evident to me only during the fall/winter. I don’t like it and will be purchasing more white stones in the future.
I love the rainbow flashes of moissy too, like LOVE them. My diamonds sparkle clear white flashes, there is a difference but it’s one I love.
