    Phoenix Moissanite H&A rounds - video!

    Does the Phoenix Moissanites stay white in all kinds of weather conditions, for example, does it turn snotty or strange color green in cloudy, rainy skies? They look very pretty. And since you aren't doing Amoras in fancy shapes anymore, and if I ever get enough money saved to buy a shape I...

    FTC ruling - a "diamond is a diamond" whether from the ground or from a lab....

    Advice needed! Looking for engagement ring that has story elements to it
