I had my heart set on a 1 ct unenhanced round moissy solitaire (due to SO’s budget). I think it’s pretty but I’d prefer a ring with side stones. I planned on buying a ring enhancer for it, however, last night I saw a beautiful 1.4 ct unenhanced cushion cut with side stones for only $180 more than the solitaire! My question is, does anyone have a cushion cut stone that big without it being enhanced? Does it look yellow? I’d prefer a smaller stone but that size is what is onsale at Moissaniteco. I hear that over 1 ct it should be enhanced but does anyone have any experience with a 1+ ct unenhanced moissy? I’d love to see pix too!

Bumping, so maybe someone with the right stone can find you!
I have a .75 unenhance round moissanite, very sparkly, hardly ever any yellow.

I believe that this poster’s original ring (she changed to a 6 mm Amora cushion, now) was unenhanced:
Looking for thoughts… loved my brand new Engagement Ring until someone said something!
Update with pics! "Loved my new e-ring until someone said something"
I really can’t say I see a difference. Maybe a bit of warmth on the unenhanced, but certainly not yellow.

i think it will probably show a bit of color. mainly since the fancy cuts (aka anything other than round brilliant) generally show more color even with the enhancement. do you mind if i ask what is your budget? Eng 161 is a great setting with sidestones, and my ring is Eng 144 and i was able to get a 1.5ct amora enhanced stone for about $1,300. i know that’s probably more than what your SO wanted to spend, but if you’re thinking of a 1ct unenhanced stone, maybe he could do the extra hundred or two for a setting you really like.
here’s a pic of mine:

@JazzyGirl: I have a 1.8 unenhanced cushion. It occassionally does show some warmth but nothing too crazy.
