    I love moissy for the extra bling and of course the cost! I have always had a ring obsession and with moissanite I am able to live it out. I’ve fallen in love with so many different cuts, emerald, antique cushions, rose cuts…to name a few and am living out my dream of having them all without going broke! I’m currently waiting on an ACC and its driving me crazy! They are just such beautiful stones!

    Budget was our deciding factor. I wanted something sparkly and beautiful, and, at the same time, something that will be durable enough to wear everyday, so it didn’t make sense to me to spend hundreds of thousand (pesos) if I can get something almost similar for so much cheaper. I’m a visual person so as long as it is pretty, it didn’t really bother me that it wasn’t a diamond. We have so many other priorities right now (baby, saving up for a house) so a diamond was never an option for us. Moissanite is perfect for me! I love the bling and all the rainbow sparkle I get from it. If we’re in a better financial spot in the future I’d probably upgrade my solitaire to something more elaborate (halo/sidestones) or just get a bigger moissanite.

    I don’t have either (yet), but I’d choose a moissanite over a diamond because I’m super frugal! If one day I won the mega lotto or if I became a celebrity or was somehow born as a socialite (too late for that!), I’d get a super ideal cut diamond 🙂

      Hands down, it was the brilliance. I did have a big engagement ring with diamonds with excellent C’s. And my moissy wedding band outshined it hands-down for a fraction of the price!
