Hello all! First time posting here but creep around often.
I known that Moissanite is a little bit lighter than a diamond. That being said (since ive yet to try one on and see for myself) how big of a difference is it? I have my eye set on the sol307 7mm from moissanite co and wondering, especially since that is a 1.5 mm band if it will be super light ring. I’m obsessing over this ring for many reason and have seen soooooooo many AMAZING ones on here and just curious as to how it feels.
Also, for anyone that has purchased from them. Is the “two tone gold” option a yellow gold band with white gold prongs? I was going to send them an email and ask but figured I’d check here first!

You’d have to have some pretty epic spidey senses to be able to tell the weight differences on your finger. I wear both a .46 diamond in a tiny 1.5mm yellow gold setting and a 2.2 moissanite in a 3mm rose gold setting and I can’t tell a difference other than I can feel the 3mm is wider if I take a second to pay attention.
And yes, with a solitaire 2 tone is usually yellow gold shank and white gold prongs. My diamond is set like that…

thesquidsfist : The weight difference between diamonds and moissanites is not enough to feel. What will determine the weight of your ring is the metal type, for instance platinum is significantly heavier than gold, as well as the amount of metal in the setting. My friend has a 2 ct diamond ring which is very similar to my 1.79 equivalent ct moissanite, both set in about 2mm platinum bands, but my ring feels heavier because the band is thicker (mine is made with more platinum), and the added metal weight far exceeds the difference in gemstone weights.
You can ask moissanite&co what the metal weight is for sol307, but yeah I’m guessing it will be fairly lightweight. Go for it though, looks like a gorgeous setting I’m sure you’ll be happy with it.
Yes two tone gold generally means yellow gold with white gold prongs, but you can also order rose gold with white gold (or platinum) prongs.

You won’t feel weight difference in the stone at all. But sol307 is going to be lightweight because it’s a dainty ring. Have you considered Sol238a? It’s a little bit thicker but will have the same look. Or if your really interested in the ring feeling heavy what about this one? I think it’s gorgeous and there is an option for two tone in the drop bar. I’ve inquired about this ring before and I believe it’s got a 3mm shank,which is double the width of the ring your wanting.

thesquidsfist : I own both moissanite and diamond rings and I’ve never, ever noticed (or known) that moissanite is lighter. Don’t worry about it 🙂

thesquidsfist : it’s DEFINITELY a noticeable difference. My 2.5 feels closer to 2 weight-wise.
