I have an OEC diamond and it’s always tested diamond…by loop and by the tester they touch to the stone.

MrsPPP:  I don’t know anything about moissanite testing as diamond, but I do know this.  You never need to make excuses for wearing yoga pants in public.

I hope…

On certain testers any kind of moissanite will show as diamond. I don’t find this odd.

MrsPPP:  I was worried it was a moissy for awhile. Jeweler I bought it from claimed diamond and I wanted to confirm with another jeweler.

MrsPPP:  I have had my moissys test as diamonds too. Must be an older tester they used for mine too. I was surprised because it happened at a couple of Jewelers.

Moissanites will test as diamond. My blue ebay moissanite tested as a diamond.

MrsPPP:  I’ve had 2 OEC moissanites, one that was unenhanced and one that was a forever brilliant and both of them have tested as a diamond, even with a newer tester that should have picked it up as moissanite.

I have 2 different mossy rings and they both tested diamond with a new tester I got for christmas.  I believe the testers merely test for hardness, in which case they should always test as a diamond grade. 

*I’m sure there are other types of testers out there but I don’t know what they are.
