Do you regret your Moissanite?
Absolutely no regrets with moissanite. No regrets here, but so far I’ve bought only DEF H&As :). I do like my 6.5mm (1 carat DEW) better than the 7.5mm, (1.5 carat DEW), so you might think about that. The larger stones are gorgeous, but they have the double refraction going on, so I like the 6.5mm better.
