Yeah, given the wide variations that exist among diamonds, I doubt anyone will be able to tell that any of these are simulants. The Asha, AG, and moissanite each fall short on something, and at the end of the day the purchaser will have to decide which "flaw" they can live with most comfortably.

Yes indeed, this would be the ultimate solution! Now to save up all of that money wink If I remember correctly, I priced a 3ct D IF triple X diamond on the Pricescope site at $178,000 + grin

And for me the biggest diamond flaw is price. I mean come on: to save $177,000 and going with the 3ct AG instead of 3ct triple ex diamond, I am sure I could live with the very minor flaws that we have all identified with the AG rather than mortgaging my house to have a pretty sparkly rock

Thank you ladies, your answers are very interesting.
The Ultra emmy has posted is to die for.
The one Patricia Leung has posted doesn't look as good.
It would be interesting to compare the numbers.
Could you ladies post the dimensions?

I did not intend to compare AG depth to diamond depth.
My message is: a 4% depth difference is a lot.
For example in diamonds, my personal preference is for depth ranging from 60 to 62 percent.
If AG have 4% depth difference, the look will be very different from one stone to another.
That's why I ask the dimensions of your stones, to see if the deeper ones are better looking or the shallower ones.

The rolling effect Patricia is talking about is interesting.
My guess is that the shallower AG have less 'rolling' than the deeper ones, because I can see the same rolling in slightly deeper diamonds. Ideal cut diamonds or slightly shallow diamonds have faster flashes to my eye.

This is because people are looking for a simulant. I don't care, it just has to look better than the best H&A, even if it looks fake. Emmy's video shows a beautiful AG Ultra, Wink's AG Ultra video compares bad to his Cut by Infinity videos. If silicon carbide has more fire and brilliance than diamond, then I just want to see them cut with more fire and brilliance and I want a comparison video of a top notch H&A diamond and a top notch silicon carbide.
