I vote moissanite. I have a 1.25ct and I couldn’t be happier. Why did I choose moissanite? Well, diamonds are beautiful, don’t get me wrong, but the industry is ugly, the price is controlled by people with selfish desires, and mining is just bad for the Earth. Moissanite is just as durable, sparkles more, and costs way less. We could have afforded a diamond at the same color, setting, size, ect but why would we? Just because one man spends $10k on a diamond doesn’t mean he loves his fiance more than the guy who got a $2000 moissanite ring loves his. That’s silly.
I never see color in my moissanite. It is enhanced and I have sat it next to a bright green bag and never had it show color. On overcast days it really seems to shine brighter.
I rock my moissanite with pride. No one is real life comes to you with a loop and a notebook full of questions. Only two people have called it a diamond and I have corrected them saying that it was moissanite and they wanted to know more. In fact, the one lady ended up ordering a pair of moissanite earrings and a right hand ring.
Don’t worry about the people who think diamonds are tradition (because they are not) and worry about what you would say to people. The only people who make a big deal about it are people on online forums like this.
If you feel like you are being deceptive, then those are feelings that you have to deal with. Just because you have a colorless stone doesn’t mean that you are trying to fool anyone. Good luck with your choice! If you want, you can order a loose stone and if you don’t like it, you can send it back.
I suggest visiting the betterthandiamond.com moissanite forums. You will get more facts than opinions there. ^_^

Even though the photos aren’t showing up right now.
And here are my photos next to a green bag when someone tried to say that if you put it next to something green, it will show up green.
Just save them until the site is working properly again.
