peacock0320:  I’m so sorry to hear about your experience.  Custom or not it’s crap that you are being charged a 20% stocking fee when they sent you a damaged product, twice.  The only positive experiences I’ve heard from this company come from their own employees or paid posters.  In fact the board has a guy here who ONLY post about DN.  I’m sure he will show up on your thread.

My wedding set and a pair of earrings are from ashadiamonds.com which is the same company as mco.com.  I’ve had my set for over two years and haven’t had any problems so I’m sure you will be thrilled with your purchase.

peacock0320:  Just my two cents! I have a yellow moissanite ring from MCO.

At first I was very happy with but as time went on I saw the stone was more yellow green than canaray yellow. So I decided to “upgrade” it with this one from C&C’s site.

The color is a softer more natural yellow (think x,y,z diamond) and am really happy it. I’ll post pics soon as I get the ring back from the jeweler’s. I also have a pear heat-treated yellow moissanite that I bought from C&C and it looks more Fancy Vivid Yellow and has no green tint. 

Long story short:

Order the stone seperately, make sure you like the color so MCO can set it in a ring. Its cheaper that way too!

 

On a silly note the final straw that pushed me to change the stone my MOH’s comment…she said the color looked like pee…

Be very careful. I’ve been researching and I have been seeing girls complaining about their Moissanires chiping But I’m not sure it they purchased it with moissanite  co.

SilaC:  All stones can chip or crack including diamonds.  You just have to hit them at the right angle.  I had an Asha as my center stone in a diamond setting.  I cracked one of the tiny diamonds in my halo and it had to be replaced while the Asha was still in perfect condition.  Do not be mislead by the post you read.  Moissy is a strong stone regardless of who you purchase it from.  No stone is indestructible, not even diamonds.

NovaRising:  I know diamonds can chip too. I’ve been researching moissanites because I want my wedding accesories to be moissy and I’ve been seeing a lot of complaints about moissanites. I’m getting my necklace and earrings anyways because I’m not going to wear them every day so I really dont care about that. But I Figured Peacock0320 would want to know since she would probably wear her ring more often. I’m not sure if you or anyone were offended by this post. If so, ghose really werent my intentions. I know that this topic can be a little sensitive sometimes.

NovaRising:  I apologize for sounding kind of rude in my previous comment. I misread your post and completely misunderstood your message. Sorry

SilaC:  Um, no problem.  I do not have a moissy anything so I’m not invested in anyway.

peacock0320:  Just a heads up about MoissaniteCo the customer service after you pay for the ring disappears and the stones they set are not hand picked. I dont want to discourage you since the prices are really low. I just wanted to share what happened in my case because it was quite an expensive lesson. Oh and I’m attaching a hasty taken picture of my pear yellow pendant so you can compare the undertones. I know moissanite reflectes color but the undertone is rarely changes.
