    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, especially outside.

    :lol: This one, along with some other pieces, makes me wonder if they’re doing “ugly” on purpose...

    0E517440-3FFE-4C08-8401-6D8780DAC57F.jpeg I had a 7/8 carat Lightbox white round diamond set into a ring. It measures 6mm. I am terrible at taking good photos of gemstones, but here it is. I’m pleased with how it turned out.

    Oh wow! Yes please share more photos! I'm still toying with the idea of replacing my half carat with their 7/8 if they never release a full carat. It's pretty dang close.

Here are some more pictures, in different light environments. Please disregard my dry skin.

    The diamond is in the same setting. The jeweler set it much higher than my moissanite is set, though I asked for it to be as low as possible. I’m guessing it was a judgment call, to show off the stone to the light. But I’m used to it being lower, and more rounded. What do you guys think about the profile?

    I personally prefer lower profiles generally - I feel like higher profiles will catch on things and be at risk of getting smacked into things and snapped clean off! :???:

    I don't think I've read about the latter happening... but I like to minimise risk :)

    Would you ask the jeweler for a re-do? I provided them side pictures of the moissy setting, and asked for the prongs to be low and rounded.

    Frogplus, the 7/8 carat is equivalent to 6mm, about .85-.9 carat size.

    I am British so never like to make a fuss :???: :lol: but if you provided pictures and it is different, you could take it in and ask them to compare side-by-side to illustrate your concerns over the setting height :)

    You could take the moissy ring itself if you wanted to!

    Some interesting stats from LB!

    https://www.gia.edu/gia-news-resear...vegas-business-lab-grown-diamonds-proliferate

    I wonder how many larger stones they would have sold if they were actually available? :rolleyes: lol

    I read elsewhere something about 'consumers resist MMD prices over $1k/ct' so I'm not sure if that was a misreporting of the consumer research claims mentioned here - I find it hard to believe that people wouldn't be tempted by a 2ct rock for $2k...

    New pink baguette 1-1/8 carat for $1k. Interesting, i thought they said they wouldn't produce anything over 1 carat. Screenshot_20190803-165546.png

    I happened to see that and thought it was weird. At that size why not cut emerald cut?

    Why set in sterling silver!?!? I don't get it! If they want to keep it from competing with 'fine jewelry' what about 10k at least?!
