I’ve heard the smaller the stone, the less likely it will show a yellow tint. So a .50 would probably be whiter than a 1.0 + carat moissy (I think). If you go to moissaniteco.com and click on loose stones you can browse around and check out the prices, etc. Amora moissanites are supposed to be whiter than non Amora. (I don’t own a moissanite but these are just things I’ve read on weddingbee that other bees have posted). And I think they have a couple color grade differences.

I have a Moissanite, and I’ve had it for a little over a year, and mine very rarely shows colors. Mine is enhanced because I got it before the Amora came out. The PP is right, the smaller the stone, the less likely it is that you will have a yellow tint. I have a 1.1 carat cushion and mine had only ever had a yellow tint twice, and that’s in poor lighting.

Go to moissaniteco’s website and check out the loose stones. You can also read up on the Amora enhancement.

I agree with the above, smaller stones show and reflect even less color. I’m not totally sure from how you said it, but if you’re worried about a moissanite getting stained or something, don’t be. In terms of quality, as far as I know only one company has the patent to make it, Charles and Colvard, so I believe quality is pretty consistent as long as you don’t get an older moissy. I believe some department stores seem to still sell the older ones, which is a shame. Since it’s lab created, no flaws, as I said color should be even harder to pick up on in a smaller stone… I’m not too sure about cut in any stones, hopefully someone else is more informed than me!

Do look up Asha too… I think it sounds like a good option from what I’ve read. Even though it is diamond covered CZ, it seems to stay clear/not cloudy in the long run and to be plenty hard despite it being slightly less hard than diamonds.

I have read that they look the most like diamonds (no green/yellow tinges). check out the info on Betterthandiamond.com

I’m with the others who have said that smaller stones tend to show less color…that seems to be the general consensus. The amora enhancement from moissaniteco is a treatment to make the stone even whiter. I have a 1.25 carat amora moissy, and I love it like crazy! Although I do have to say, it shows a lot of color. Thats my favorite thing about it, though.
