    asha looks most like a diamond, but moissanite is more durable and sparklier. asha is a bit cheaper too (i think) but personally I would go with moissanite because it is almost as hard as diamond (10).

    I believe moissanite is 9.5 and asha is 8.5.

    also, asha is a coated CZ, so basically it’s a CZ. Moissanite is a stone in its own right.

    Honestly, something that looks just like a 1-1.5 carat diamond at that price is just not possible.

    Diamonds of that size are not in that budget, and neither Asha (coated CZ) nor moissanite look just like diamonds. If you want to know which one looks more similar to a diamond, it’s Asha, but no, it won’t look the same.

    What I would do with that budget? I’d buy a beautiful smaller diamond or other beautiful natural gemstone (most other natural stones cost less than diamonds so you can get more “bang for your buck” sizewise, especially if it turns out that the gemstone you like isn’t too rare.)

    you could also get a preowned ring for AMAZING prices on ebay. if you don’t believe in the superstition along with it. I have a few pre owned rings and couldn’t have got anywhere near that price for buying it new.

    Hmmm, I think that’s a bit tough. A lot of bee’s say they can’t really tell the difference between Moissanite and Diamond, but others say they can. I wouldn’t pick Asha, and I would want to see a Moissanit irl before I comitted for life, as I’ve only seen them online which is clearly not the same.

    I think if you want a diamond, you should look into that, preowned sounds like a good plan! But if you just like whit stones in general, I’d definately consider a Moissanite!

    @lilsweetie:  Can I ask (whithout any meaness behind this) what makes you trust an ebay seller? I just feel really strongly that I would pay for a diamond and end up with glass or something! But I love the idea of preowned rings!

    When I first started looking at rings I was very interested in Moissanite.  I ordered a pair of earrings so I could see what it looked like (plus I wanted nice studs to wear everyday).  I loved the way the stone looked so told Fiance about it, and now I have my Moissanite ring!
