4mm Moissanite vs. 8mm Princess Cut Diamond Hybrid®
Note: In its natural state, Moissanite is a green stone.
Moissanite and Diamond Hybrid® Comparison
Moissanite will commonly grade as J - N color diamond on the GIA scale. The color grades are better in the small and round Moissanite. If you are looking for smaller rounds (.10 - .50ct), Moissanite may be an option for you to consider. The round cut, being one designed to sparkle, helps hide the color problem. However, even in rounds, the larger you go, the worse it gets as far as how it rates on the color scale. Fancy shapes are poor in color grade regardless of size.
Diamond Hybrid® grades F-G on average (the consensus of five gemologists).
