    hi everyone,
    having been a lurker for a long time, i want to ask your opinion!
    i absolutely love the look of moissy stones, the only thing that puts me off is the colour- so does anyone know how white an enhanced RB 6mm would be? i can't seem to find any definitive answers on the MoCo website- and they don't specify how white the unenhanced are either....any help?

    I own several moissanite solitaires in large sizes. The color range seems to be I/J for unenhanced. I, too, would love to know what color the enhanced version turns out to be. The best thing to do is write to Moissaniteco.com and ask them. They are very good at getting back to you right away. Please post when you get the answer.

    i wrote to them and they said that the stones are between 1 and 3 shades lighter- even the rounds. it's just that i'd like someone's opinion having seen one!
    1 to 3 shades lighter from I/J gives a range of F to I- which is quite a wide range- but they didn't say if the round changes less than the other shapes.
    i'd prefer something F or G colour if possible so just want to know if anyone's seen a round enhanced and how white it actually is!

    I'd love to see a comparison pic with the rounds. I don't think anyone has posted one with rounds yet? Currently my moissanite seem to lean on the I-J end.

    I bet if you asked MoissaniteCo they would be willing to pick a stone from their enhanced supply with the color you want!
