@Herbalgirl:  Honestly it sounds like your jeweler is an idiot (sorry if that’s harsh).  You should look for a local reputable jeweler who has worked with moissanite before.  I don’t think that setting the stone correctly should be a problem!  Pic of the ring?

@Herbalgirl:  I’ve never actually seen a black moissy, so if you have pics please post 🙂  Aside from that, I think a good jeweler should be able to work with any stone.  There are many blue topaz, citrine, etc rings which are all “softer” on the mohs scale than diamond or moissy.  However, durability and hardness are two different things.

@Herbalgirl:  Yeah, he sounds like he doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about.  Your stone shouldn’t be loose at all; I don’t blame you for being paranoid.  Do you have a local jeweler you could bring it to?  Maybe that way you can get a second opinion and perhaps better service on the setting.

It’s beautiful BTW!  Never seen a black moissy before and it’s just stunning – good choice!

I have a pair of moissy earrings that I’ve had for years. A couple of years ago I thought I’d lost one forever, and it turned up in our home office after my husband rolled over it with the computer chair. I was afraid it would have damaged the stone but it was just fine. That’s about my only experience with the durability of the stone, and I was relieved and impressed.

Beautiful ring by the way, absolutely love the elegance of the black!
