    I have an oval moissy. It’s 1.85 carats (9×6) crushed ice oval Harro Gem. I’m a size 4. I’ve had it for about 11 months and I still love it very much!

    bellabee16 :  So gorgeous. What made you go with the crushed ice? I’m having SUCH a hard time deciding between that and a more ‘traditional’ cut. I think I’d like an elongated cushion, and love the look of D-F coloured FL diamonds, so would like a moissy that has a similar look and feel.

    I went with an 8×6 Forever Brilliant oval.  I prefer the sparkle that it gives over the sparkle the crushed ice gives.  However, the crushed ice cut does have a more diamond cut appearance than the cut I have.  For me, the sparkles were just different, and more, I saw a video comparison, don’t remember where I saw it though.  The sparkles were more on fire, more lively and I preferred that look.

    danaberries :  I think bellabee might know which video I’m referring to?   It showed the crushed vs brilliant cut.  It was actually the video, maybe it was 2 separate vids? that helped me make the final decision.

    I found it!  Okay, go to this video, and it shows different stones.  After they show the cushion cut comes the ovals, the ovals begain at 26 seconds in.  The first is a brilliant cut and second is the crushed ice.  The crushed ice starts at about 38 seconds.

    For me it was a no brainer as I wanted sparkle and was not as concerned about a more diamond like cut.

    I want to clarify too, bellabee’s ring is gorgeous.  I’ve seen it in videos too, and it’s just wonderful.  She did her research and found the crushed ice look to her liking.  They are just different cuts with different looks.  You have to just do the research, look at videos especially and you will know which tickles your fancy better!

    20sparklingyears :  I thought for sure I replied.. Must be tired! 

    Thank you for all your help! I’ll definitely keep looking at videos cuz I’m still not sure what I want! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ™Š I’ll likely end up ordering a couple stones to have a look at in person before I make the ultimate decision. So far I think I have them nailed down to a crushed ice elongated cushion from Zen Moissanite and an elongated cushion Aterna by Quorri. I’m still waiting to hear more from quorri about their Aterna stones, so things could – and knowing me likely will – still change! πŸ˜‚πŸ’–

    This is my 2 carat (10x7mm) pear shaped ring from Moissanite Co, on my size 6 finger, that I have had for about 10 months. I absolutely adore my ring still!! Beside saying yes to my fiancé, it’s the best decision I’ve eber made. Always taking pics of it, looking at it, making my Fiance look at…

    Ovals are gorgeous also!! Can’t beat the fire & sparkle of a moissy IMO.

    Congratulations on your ring! Can’t wait to see your pics!

    danaberries :  thanks! I decided to go with crushed ice because I prefer the way they look over brilliant cut moissy. I also think it gives a more diamond like appearance. The elongated crushed ice cushions are so beautiful! I’m actually considering buying one in the future from either harro gem or Port city jewellers who now have their own brand called eternal moissanite. They cost a few hundred dollars less than other brands,are located in the US, and they make stunning crushed ice cuts. The only down side is that they don’t except returns because they custom cut every stone to order

    Tiggy24 :  2 carat equivalent neo cushion with tapered baguettes for my ering and the top band is 1/2 eternity, just shy of 1 carat tw, with straight baguettes, also moissy but those are zaya. Bottom ring is made up of princess cut diamonds (that had been passed down and I had them set in this). Both moissy rings are 6.5 and the diamond ring is a 7. I am wishing I had the two moissy rings at a 7 because I want to add one more ring to the stack. 
    I’ve had my ering for 1 year and yes, I still love it and the 1/2 eternity just arrived 1-2 weeks ago and I’m quite pleased with it.
