OK, so, moissanite isn’t very common in the UK; most people I know have never even heard of it, and I hadn’t heard of it until I joined the bee.
I’ve always been intrigued as to what it looks like IRL, and I THINK I might have seen my first one! For one, it looked to be around the 1.2ct size; and that is a VERY uncommon size to see in the UK, esp where I live (average I’ve seen is around 0.33-0.4ct). Second, I’ve not seen a diamond like it: it threw a LOT of rainbows in the store lighting and just sparkled differently to all the diamonds I’ve seen (kinda hard to explain). Third, it had a very slight yellow/green tint to it from certain angles.
Now obv I have no idea if it actually was moissy, but it was gorgeous! It’s made me want to order one just to see lol.
