Radiant cut moissanite tend to show alot of body color so I imagine a 4 carat would have a noticeable ting to it. I don’t think $1500 is too much for a 4 carat radiant cut moissanite. Does the seller offer returns?

nanabb1202:  But remember you’re comparing to it an actual diamond.  The moissy won’t look the same and won’t look as clear per se as a diamond because it’s not a diamond.  I’m terrible with pricing, but $1500 for a 4 carat ring doesn’t sound bad.  Are you sure it looks yellow?  Or just not as white as the diamond?

nanabb1202:  The very newest cut moissy is whiter than before, but if you got this one pre-loved it may be from older stock.  However, like PP said the cut adds to the color too.  I suggest selling it to someone and hitting the drawing board again.

I’d love to see a picture!! I love warmth in diamonds, I own a light fancy yellow solitaire as my RHR sI maybe I’m biased. I’m sure it’s beautiful and it sounds like you got a good deal, I haven’t got any moissanite jewellery but I have seen so many and would love another RHR moisanite ring lol 🙂

A 3.5ct radiant loose moissanite stone is $1575 at Moissanite Co., so I’d say you got a deal monetarily. If you don’t like it, though, then it’s not a very good deal.

I would say sell it or return it and get something you really do love.

mrs.joiner:  I agree. When side-by-side to a diamond, you will probably notice the natural properties of a moissanite much more. Best to compare it to another moissanite. Can you go to a jeweler that sells them? That way you could get an appraisal for it while you’re there.

Fancy cuts always show more colour, regardless of the stone, and larger carat weights also show more colour. A fancy cut unenhanced moissanite in a huge carat size is bound to show a fair amount of colour. I cannot speak to the price being a “good deal” or not, but if it isn’t visually appealing to you then any price is too much. I hope the seller offers returns.

In all seriousness though, if the color bothers you, try to return.

i personally LOVE the warmth of the moissy and am drawn to pear or radiant cuts for this reason. (ovals too). You also have to imagine that LOTS of woman pay extra for a yellow tinted diamond. AND a lot of celebrities are sporting the yellowish stones these days. Lets see some pics! I bet it’s GORGEOUS
