This ring is so beautiful that it distracts me in the reflection in my car when I am driving! Probably not good in that regard🙂 It does have a slight yellow tint in certain light, but it is clear and it sparkles in the sun, stores, bathrooms, candlelight etc... This sparkles like the best quality diamond, but I am proud to say it is a moissanite! No one died or lost a limb for it, and this has a little carbon imprint! I will spread the word, my 4 kids will know that there is no need to ever purchase a diamond!
This 1/2ct is beautiful and the perfect size for me. I wanted the look of a quality diamond without the huge price and am not disappointed. I did a ton of research before settling on Moissanite and here's what I have learned; there is Classic,Forever Brilliant and the newer Forever One designations in this man-made gem. This is ordered by quality as well, Classic being the least and One being the best. Forever Brilliant has been the standard for quality Moissanite for awhile and it really is very diamond-like. The draw back in the FB is that in certain light it can give off faint yellowish flashes but the gem presents white and sparkles 'diamond' over-all (and for me, I'm ok with this because it just adds to the believably) They say that the Forever One has been perfected and they've eliminated all traces of yellow flash. I don't know if that's true b/c I've yet to see one. Also, with any Moissanite you'll get a a carnival of colors reflected back, almost too much color play. But flawless real diamonds of excellent cut will give off near similar beauty. So tldr; these are very beautiful, top tier man-made gems with very minor quirks yet the most realistic alternative out there, IMO. Hope this review was helpful.
This ring looks like a quality diamond, with lots of sparkle and light! A diamond of similar size and quality would cost anywhere from $5k to $20k. I work in the jewelry industry, so I know. This is the only gem I would trust and wear on my finger aside from natural gemstones and diamonds. A word of caution though - buy a Charles and Colvard Moissanite. They are patented and their quality standards are regulated. There are many other companies out there that claim to sell Moissanite, but they are imitations! Beware!
After reading the reviews of many different manufacturers of rings and of the rings themself and where they come from, Charles and Colvard stands above all else. The ring is beautiful and well worth the investment and Overstock has the best price. I waited three months before writing this review to see how the ring would hold up and it looks just as it did on the day I proposed to my beautiful bride to be. This is not our first rodeo, we both lost or spouses, we both raised our children now it's our time to live a true love story. Like I said in the title the ring is Absolutely Stunning!
