watercolourcarapace :  wow I’ve never seen this! But I don’t think I’d like having a Hearts and arrows oval. For some reason I don’t like a Hearts and arrows cut on any stone shape other than a round. The harro oval brilliants look beautiful in the videos I’ve seen though!

Hope this isn’t a dead thread but I think if they made a forever one with crushed ice it would be a perfect match to the diamond. But both moissy have pluses and minus to the they won’t be exact to a diamond but then again theat all depends on what kind of cut clarity and color diamond you are comparing it to.

I know OP has already selected her stone but wanted to contribute for anyone who may read this curious as to some of the names mentioned. I have both NEO and ZAYA moissanites. I had never seen a moissy in person but the day we got engaged, I was thrilled with my NEO. It’s been almost a year, and I am as happy today as I was then with our decision and with the stone/ring. There were many different reasons as to why we decided to go the moissy route. I recently treated myself to a 1/2 eternity band with ZAYA baguettes, I am also totally thrilled with this ring. 
Here are the specs on both rings: 
eRing is a 7mmx7mm NEO cushion center, G-H color. The tapered baguettes are 5mmx2.5mmx2mm SUPERNOVA, set in 14K white gold. Pic was taken indoors, at night, in low and warm lighting.

Specs on the 1/2 eternity: 7 colorless 4/2mm ZAYA moissanite straight baguettes, E-F color, VS1 clarity. Here is a comparison pic of both ring together and then one on hand (I wear a size 6.5)

Next pic was taken indoor, by window, in indirect sunlight. For reference band under ering is diamonds and below that cheap pandora rings with tiny CZ.

Both of my moissy rings were purchased from jholloywooddesigns on Esty. I loved working with them. Some bees said they take a while to get back to you. I’ve found that they typically get back to you within 24hrs-48hrs, which to me is accepatable. All of their rings are made to order and take 4-6 weeks for fabrication, unless the stones have to be cut. Both time, they sent the rings in the timeframe explained prior to purchase. They will work with you for any custom order or modifications. I requested different prongs on my ering and the 1/2 eternity was not a listing, Jen created it for me. Both rings came with warranty. I’ve NEVER had any issues with anything some other bees have mentioned in other posts, no yellow or green hues, no oil spot on the top. I clean them with warm water and dish soap and it’s worked great for me. I wear my rings daily and I have not had any issues. I am happy to answer any questions or provide more pics in different lighting for anyone interested.

stephfleisch :  Hi! I know you posted this info from Chris about a year ago, but I wanted to respond because the information about the NEO coming from/through Quality Gold is completely inaccurate. I’ve seen the moissanite (Pure Light, True Light) that QG is selling and it’s not a brand of stone I’d consider selling. The NEO has much higher standards for their stones, and also rigorous quality control in place, not to mention their cuts are different from C&C’s as well. (Just look at the crown height on both, no comparison.) The NEO guys source their stones directly from overseas. I’ve been selling their moissanite since they came on the market in 2015, and they have a beautiful product. Of the thousands of stones I’ve bought, I returned maybe 2 that I had an issue with. Just wanted to clarify, and share the truth about the NEO Moissanite.

stephfleisch :  If this is true, I’ve seen the Purelight round and was underwhelmed by its performance. Might be different for an oval.

Mrs.Bill :  Ya, me too. I’ve seen a number of their stones, including ovals. I found they had surface issues, blown culets, and inclusions. Moissanite is lab grown, it should have very few inclusions. I didn’t love their cuts either. They are inexpensive though, so I’ll give them that. But moissanite is pretty reasonable anyway, so why not spend a little more and get the most beautiful one you can find. Esp for an e-ring. 

I just wish they weren’t spreading lies, that is not cool. This industry is really small, and it’s better for us as retailers to have each others backs, you know?

I personally really like Supernova Moissanite by Moissanite International. They are new but totally white clear grogeous and affordable. I love mine.

bouncybee11 :  Ah, they do cut a pretty stone! We used to carry them. I just wish they had a warranty. I was their first retailer so it took a while for them to get stones to us, so I slowly phased them out. They are wonderful folks, the family who runs the biz. Super sweet people!

jhollywoodesigns :  my new ring came with a Moissanite International warranty. I have a solitaire so I hope my setting is secure enough my stone won’t break.

bouncybee11 :  They have a warranty now? We did always send their white cert of authenticity out with each purchase, no warranty, at least a few years ago. Moissanite isn’t known to break – it’s a very tough stone, so you should be fine. Most moissanite warranties cover color changes and clouding for the life of the stone. NEO covers chips and scratches too. I love solitiares! Esp paired with blingy bands. 😀
