    Diamond… I love how it sparkles like crazy all the time, but mostly in my car.

    Moissanite (unenhanced)

    I think it sparkles the most in bright sunlight, though these pictures are from sunset and semi-sade respectively πŸ™‚

    I have a moissy and it sparkes soooo much in home depot and walmart haha. And in certain hallways at work.

    I actually don’t only like it when it sparkles heavily (I find it can get a bit too “disco” under spot lighting for my tastes, to be honest…fortunately that’s mainly only in my bathoom and building elevator so it’s not excessive to me) so I like my ring in all lighting! I love how it has so many different personalities depending on the lighting. I can’t say it ever disappoints!

    One of my favorites is when it is like a cool calm iceburg, with only a few flashes, but very sharp, complex edges in it and clear as, well, ice…I feel like I’m in patagonia at those times and I’m going to see my breath come out because it must be freezing πŸ˜‰ That’s in indirect sun.

    I work at a jewelry store and it definitely looks best in there.  πŸ™‚

    It looks great on sunny days, (hah! πŸ˜€ ) and it also looks good in dim lighting… think like auditorium lighting before the play is about to begin, or candlelight. It REALLY sparkles like crazy for some reason when there is very little light to pick up!

    I’ve noticed that low lighting in restaurants sets my ring on fire! I don’t have any pics though. πŸ™

    I have a white sapphire, and I get the most sparkle out of it when I’m driving or at church–doesn’t even matter which church!
