    Moissanite rings from Starsgem on ebay (starsgem8)

    I have a GH OMC...it’s actually my avatar. It’s not yellow at all. It’s more “steely” and less icy than DEF, in my opinion. :D I know it looks like it’s reflecting yellow, but it doesn’t. Here’s a couple pics of it:

    Haven't been posting too much on PS lately, but I noticed a few days ago that Mona has been carrying lab diamonds now! So I guess if you want to have pave, there are options. =)2

    Moissanite rings from Starsgem on ebay (starsgem8)

    Sorry for my late reply! I haven't been active on PS as much due to dealing with life issues. :lol::oops: And thanks! I call it OMC (Old Mine Cut), but people mostly use ACC (Antique Cushion Cut)/OMC interchangeably. I just say OMC because when most people think ACC, they think of the elongated...

    Any Love Affair Moissanite owners out there?

    Just curious, didn’t you used to have the MoCo OEC? I thought theirs look similar to AVRs. I personally like the fat petal look, but some people like the transitional look better, which I think Harro/JuliaB/Tianyu seem look more like.

    Any Love Affair Moissanite owners out there?

    I follow her Instagram. You might want to get them now because I heard she is going to discontinue carrying moissanites. I forgot when, but I think it’s end of July...? I do agree that her OECs look transitional to me. They look a lot like Tianyu’s OECs.

    Moissanite rings from Starsgem on ebay (starsgem8)

    Did someone here order this asscher bezel? If so, it’s gorgeous! :kiss2: I’m surprised how nice Starsgem’s bezels are turning out these days; they’re less “bulky” looking, imo. =)2

    OEC Moissy

    I don't think any of the Chinese vendors cut close to the August Vintage OEC. :(2 That said, I think Tianyu's looks the best, but the petals are still a little "thinner" than AV.

    Buying Moissanite from Tianyu Gems

    Tianyu doesn’t do lab diamonds...as far as I’m aware, Starsgem only has round brilliants at this time. Personally I don’t think their lab diamonds are worth the cost right now unless you are going under a carat for the stones.

    Where to Buy Oval Moissanite 1.25 or 1.5 dew for my engagement Ring.

    I haven’t bought any ovals, but if I wanted to save money, I’d pick Starsgem to make an oval. I have seen few people buy the “diamond cut” oval from Starsgem and it looks really nice. I’ve bought from Starsgem (the ring in my avatar is from them), and I prefer their prices and customer service...

    Where to Buy Oval Moissanite 1.25 or 1.5 dew for my engagement Ring.

    Unless it’s an antique oval, I think colorless (DEF) for a modern cut oval would be best. I saw that August Vintage just came out with their oval moissanite: https://august-vintage-inc.myshopify.com/collections/august-vintage-moissanite/products/your-custom-cut-signature-oval-moissanite

    Good to know, thank you! ;-) I’ll stick with GH then.

    Oh, that’s a shame! I was still trying to decide between GH and IJ for my OEC. I don’t want my OEC to be too white and the IJs I’ve seen look beautiful... :oops2: Edit: I just noticed the the new ovals come in DEF only. Not sure if GH will come later...?

    Lol, no, I just mentioned it since a few people expressed interest. My heart is set on the OEC. :love: Just need to figure out the type of setting I’d like. =)2

    Thanks so much! Admittedly it's not a popular shape, but I love it and I get excited when other people get this version. Off topic, I'm not loving this iPhone X. It's supposed to be an upgrade from my old phone (which is that last pic), but closeups are horrible. My OMC isn't yellow in the...

    No worries! It's from Starsgem, GH color. I'm having the worst time taking a photo of the true color with my new phone, but it's not yellow/champagne at all...just not as white as a colorless/EF. Here it is unset:

    Ideas for RHRs

    Oooh, I love these ideas! I am not married so I mostly wear RHRs or middle/index finger rings. All my moissanite rings are RHRs, although they’re solitaires. Ivy and Rose art-deco inspired filigree in 14K white gold: Locally designed bezel ring in 18k yellow gold; I think bezels tend to...

    I hear ya. I may just buy the AVR by the end of this year because I’m that nuts. I love the AV MRB I got a couple months ago, but I swore up and down it would be the only branded moissy I’d buy. Now I want the OEC. :(2:lol: I haven’t decided on how I want to set it, though, so that is helping me...

    I don’t have the OEC but I’m kinda in the same predicament. I’ve had an AVR in my shopping cart for months now but haven’t pulled the trigger...mostly because I have been a little stingy and am holding out hope that the price of moissy goes down since lab diamonds have become more ubiquitous ...

    Not to mention...I'm looking forward to moissy prices dropping as well! :appl::lol: I've been holding off buying an OEC moissy for this reason. :Up_to_something2:

    Buying Moissanite from Tianyu Gems

    Oh, I definitely agree with everything you said. I really think DeBeers would prefer to keep these as costume jewelry, so I didn't have very high expectations. It's nice but not something I'd plan on popping out the diamond and using as formal jewelry. Anyway, I'm glad I got to see one...

    Buying Moissanite from Tianyu Gems

    I think I'm so used to H&As, so I think I liked the Tianyu one better. :lol: I posted other photos of the pendant in the lab diamond subforum, but if I had to be honest, I really didn't like it...I thought the cut was really bad. The culet is actually really large in the Lightbox diamond, so...

    Buying Moissanite from Tianyu Gems

    I was unsure about posting this photo but I thought it would be informative for anyone who is deciding between a Lightbox diamond and moissanite, especially now that DeBeers has (reluctantly) introduced white lab diamonds. This isn't my pendant; I only handled it when my sister visited me last...

    Lightbox has a countdown

    The color of the main diamond is pretty white! I definitely agree with others who said it looks brighter than G. I also thought the clarity was good, too. I think if one isn’t into diamonds or doesn’t know too much about them, this would be a great piece to wear. It’s very sparkly and flashy...

    Lightbox has a countdown

    I hesitated posting this, but anyway, my sister bought one of these Lightbox pendants with the 7/8 carat white diamond. She visited me his past weekend and I asked to see it. I don’t think hers looks as nice as some of the rounds posted here... The color is nice, so I’ll give Lightbox...

    Anyone seen a CZ from Old Mine Rocks?

    Oh, duh, now I feel really stupid. :lol: I'm actually following Shan Adams on Instagram, I should know that her and Shantastic are completely different! But like you said, both like to use big stones. I know PriceScope ladies LOVE huge stones, but some of us are small stone fans... :whistle::lol-2:

    August Vintage Ideal Cut H&A or Amora Gem Eternity H&A?

    Oooooh, I'm really excited for you!!! I'm so glad you went with August Vintage and I can't wait to see it. Did they give you a timeline when you'll get it? I still have their custom cut OEC in my shopping cart. I haven't pulled the trigger because I am being cheap right now... :???::lol:

    Anyone seen a CZ from Old Mine Rocks?

    I'll have to look at her YT videos. The tables on her OECs look pretty large: https://www.etsy.com/listing/504418123/old-european-cut-oec-round-cubic?ga_search_query=old%2Beuropean&ref=shop_items_search_7&frs=1 Her OECs are also pretty large and I'm a small stone gal. I remember asking if...

    Anyone seen a CZ from Old Mine Rocks?

    Oh bummer! I thought the table was small for sure when I saw the video up close. I guess the emerald target setting makes it look smaller...? It's gorgeous, btw. :love: I still might check it out. I want my fat OEC petals! LOL. :lol:
