Smaller RB ?
I have a 7.5mm RB and that thing goes crazy sparkling in certain lighting. However, I bought some 5mm RB moissy and they don't seem to have the same fire. Are they duds or is it due to being smaller? I was really surprised in the difference.

If they are both sparkling less, I would say it is the size. Smaller diamonds sparkle differently from larger diamonds too.

RE: Smaller RB ?
Ok, thanks. That makes sense.. Now I understand the urge to always go larger. Smile

Huh. My experience is that smaller stones sparkle MORE. It's why I got rid of my big stones and stuck with smaller stones with melee.

One's not better than the other, they're just different and my preference is for the sparkle and twinkle of the small stones.

These seem to behave more like diamonds. Not throwing rainbows, etc.

I agree with this. The small stones still sparkle a lot, just differently.

One day, I'll be a crazy old lady weighed down by all my baubles and it will be glorious.

It might be the cut. Not all rbs are cut the same, the older RB moissanites do not sparkle the same as the new.
