Wtf??? Its definitely not the same. That's just blatant false advertising. Is yours knife edge? The pic on their website is so different
No knife edge, either. I bought a diamond tester, because with the false advertisement on the setting, it makes me question the stone. I'm pretty sure it is a diamond based on what I see, but I want to make sure.

That's absurd. It's just false advertising plain and simple. I would return it.

Here's a color comparison with my .50 lightbox pendant. I really do love the stone. But, yeah. If they are in the jewelry business they should know the difference in the two settings. IMG_20200601_201023911.jpg

The stone is really pretty. But definitely warmer than they advertise, and the setting mistake is just irritating. Makes me feel like they are dishonest

The diamond tester came, and it is positive as diamond. I'm not surprised, since the color is unique to a diamond, and it doesn't look like any of my moissanites. I've been having a really hard time seeing any inclusions, and the cut does seem nice. It has been fun to take it into different lighting situations and play with it. I have yet to see an environment that it is dead in. I would describe the color as warm vanilla, my preference in diamonds. I was fully aware it wouldn't be as white as advertised, and am fine with that. I actually like it in yellow gold, it has quite a personality with browns, peaches, blues in sunlight and white in the shade.

So, all that said, I have decided to keep it purely for the diamond. I have fallen in love with its color, size in proportion to my size 6 finger, and clarity. I'd be hard pressed to find a nearly one carat diamond for anywhere near $700 that looks this nice. The special sale price they had on this ring apparently expired, and the price has gone back up to nearly $1300. :(

The setting is nice, just not what I was expecting. I have bands that match it for now, and will probably reset the diamond in the future. But for now, I'm enjoying its simplicity (and color- did I mention I LOVE the color? LOL!)

Just be aware if you order from New World, the color grading may be off. If you are color sensitive, you may want to look elsewhere, like Lightbox. My lightbox stone is several grades whiter. Also, I'm still not sure how I feel about the setting fiasco, but I bought it for the diamond. Clarity and cut are good. They were very quick to help with setting up a return when I talked to them about the setting, so it sounds like they stand by the return policy.

Lastly, their phone number seems to be disconnected, but I was able to get through immediately on their online chat. Not sure what that was about.

Sorry for the rambling, but thought I should give an update for those that might still be interested in the stones from this company.has

ETA: I was just browsing through the pinky Orange diamonds, they look so pretty! I'd be curious to see if they look that way in real life, too!

This is super helpful! I am so curious what their pink/orange eternity bands look like!

@doribird, I'm so sorry that the setting turned out so poorly/perhaps fraudulently. The stone is really pretty, though - nice cut and, like you, I love brown! - and at that price I think you're right, it's still a good deal for a stone you like so much. So....yay for that! And thanks for sharing your experience, so the rest of us kind of know what we're dealing with with them.

Just chatted with them this morning bc I was curious about IRL pics of their eternity bands. Person on chat sent me this pic of the pink and orange bands.

They also said bands are made to order so if ppl are looking for a specific shade (I would want peach/light brownish vs pure pink, for example), you can request that.
Just in case anyone finds it helpful!

Thanks for posting! This is great info. I’m not sure if I want colors so saturated, but they sure look sparkly so that’s a plus.

Bumping this. I am really tempted by their blue diamonds, although I’m curious how deep and vibrant the color is. I bought a Lightbox pendant last year and wasn’t crazy with how pale the blue diamond was. I am dark and the lightbox blue looked white on me and didn’t look like a real blue at all.

I did sign up for New World Diamond’s mailing list and they give you a 10% off coupon, plus a couple follow up emails for any promos and sales they may have. If I find a good discount, I may get a blue diamond from them. I do like that the website shows the diamonds’ certs although it’s weird that they don’t list the cut grade for the majority of the colored diamonds. Full specs are listed on the certs, however. Not terribly picky about the cut grade for colored diamonds, btw; I just want the clarity to be decent.
