Update to original review: stone has developed a purple "gasoline" haze over the surface, screaming I am fake. This is not my first moissanite. This large stone resembles more of a white sapphire since it does not have a lot of fire - unless in the proper lighting. I am unsure if it is the princess cut that keeps a subtle appearance or the manufacturer. The setting and surrounding diamonds are flawless. The band and style are elegant and comfortable.
Let me be the first to say that my now husband and I were super nervous about purchasing this ring. We couldn't justify spending thousands of dollars on a real diamond engagement ring; but, we also wanted to make sure whatever we purchased still looked beautiful and was special. We had never heard of moissanite before so obviously we were a little nervous. After some reasearch we came to the conclusion that it would be the perfect option for our needs and made the plunge. Well, turns out the ring is gorgeous!! I have received so many compliments on the ring, it sparkles like crazy, and my moissanite diamond sparkles more than a real one and cost a fraction of the price!! I would encoaurage any couple to do some research on the Charles and Colvard collection. We are extremely pleased with our purchase and would totally recommended to any couple in the same situation.
