Question…. What is most diamond like? Amora Moissy or FB old european cut?
I love moissanite for what it is – I love the character of it and the beauty it has in its own right, however we have a few judgemental people in our family who we don’t particularly feel like announcing our ring is a moissanite. So which out of the two stones is more diamond like? Not an exact match just to the point where a quick close up look you won’t question the stone.
I know, I know we shouldn’t care. We love moissy and are wrapped about our choice. I just don’t want to be put in the position of explaining and justifying our life to other people!
if you have any pics or similar experiences please share!!
Thank you! 🙂

Honestly, either one in a size congruent with your lifestyle and financial situation will pass muster with people just looking at your hand.
Which do you prefer? Either one will be great. I have a 7.5mm ish Amora-ized OEC that was constantly getting compliments and no one knew it wasn’t a diamond unless I told them (which was almost everyone). I don’t wear it much anymore, as I wear my AG most of the time, which also frequently is mistaken for a diamond.

They cannot be fully, 100% diamond like. Nothing is that diamond like other than a diamond, so please keep that mindset when buying this stone.
Second, contrary to popular belief, moissanite is actually gaining popularity. You might think your family or any of your women relatives don’t know moissanite, but you cannot be for sure. This is a general warning that lying about what your stone is might actually get you in a situation you are NOT expecting and you might come out as a liar. Honestly, that would be humiliating. (I have a backstory to this, not me personally but a girl in my class.. long story).
Third, believability of the stone depends on the wearer’s lifestyle. People here on the Bee will dispute this claim, but that’s just how it is. Perception matters.
Since you are trying to pass your moissanite as a diamond, keep in mind the size and your lifestyle. OEC is a beautiful cut moissanite and it will be amazing in either Amora or FB. Happy shopping Bee!
