SoonMrsCrocker2:  I would rather have a moissy than a cluster any day. But that’s just me. We all have our preferences.

I know mine isn’t on your list, but I thought I’d share anyway. This is my FB moissy one afternoon right before getting out of my car. The light was hitting it just right, and I kept moving it around to get (almost) the full spectrum!

RedOrangeYellowGreenBlue

Green/rainbows is most common for my stone. And here’s another shot of my set (and my DH’s ring) outside during our mini-honeymoon.

Good luck picking your ring! I don’t think you can go wrong with any choice. I find diamonds and moissy to be equally beautiful, but moissy was more practical for DH and me (and F1 was new when he got my set, so I hadn’t even considered it as an option).

nelliemade :  I’d also prefer moissanite or a small diamond in a plain knife edge setting over a cluster.  You need to REALLY REALLY love clusters to consider that approach.

SoonMrsCrocker2 :  That is very pretty, but be careful with Kay!  Do your research on them before you buy a ring there.  Lots of horror stories.

I normally put my other hand over the top of the ring hand whilst trying it on to cover the lighting from the jewellery store etc. It kind of allows you to see if from a more natural lighting 🙂

SoonMrsCrocker2: Sure, but both of the rings you posted are halo settings. It would have to be an excellent cluster setting for me even to consider it, and some of us just aren’t into halos. Some of us just like the solitaire look.

My broker had an entire box of halos he wanted to show me and was surprised when I wasn’t  interested in them. He asked why not and my answer again was, it has to be a really unique/one of a kind setting for me to appreciate it. They are just not my scene.

Here’s my Amora Gem. Couldn’t be happier with it. My former ring was a diamond and they are indistinguishable to the naked eye. This photo looks a bit funky as I’m in my office currently and just snuck a photo with my phone, but it’s a gorgeous stone.

i’ve watched lots of youtube videos. moissys have more fire and brilliance than diamonds. they sparkle more.

rosemaryandthyme :  put it under the table or at least cover it with your hand and see if it still sparkles. A good cut diamond will sparkle in the dark or in any lighting.
