I know this is a super sensitive subject so please know I am not trying to start a debate or a fight Im just looking for someone to help me with ordering some Moissy jewellery. I have a diamond ring and I had never heard of Moissy before I joined the bee so I am unfamiliar with it but Im really wanting to order some, what Im looking for is to get a dangly Moissy bracelet (preferably blue and clear) so I figured if I can get it for a lot cheaper why not? But Im not sure about how to order it? Is there a known reputable site? Can you just get it from a local jewelery store? I tried googling it but a million sites come up and I dont want to order from a crappy site or get ripped off……any direction would be awesome! Thanks

@LauraRose: My Fiance ordered my ring from moissaniteco.com and had a great experience. I’m not sure they have exactly what you are looking for, but if they don’t you could always order the moissy loose and get it made into a bracelet by a local jeweler.

Most girls on this site would probably say they’ve ordered from moissaniteco.com or betterthandiamond.com – google them both.
From what I know about Moissanite.. it’s made by Charles and Covard and the other sites are just distributors, not manufacturers. There is moissanite and then amora-enhanced moissanite (makes it a bit whiter) and then there’s the amora h&a gem (should be the whitest, like an F diamond) which is set to come out at the end of this year, but probably not be released in the states until 2015.
I don’t know anything about the colored moissanites, since I haven’t done any research on them. But, I do know that there are also gem-created sapphires, if you’re looking for that type of blue. Also, some etsy jewelers work with moissanite and I know some people have mentioned that their jewelers do work with moissanite, as well. There are some Bees who have mentioned that they ordered the loose stone and had it set by a jeweler in their city. Maybe that’s an option for you if you want a certain design.

ordered my loose stone from moissaniteco and had no problems at all. Any questions I had were answered quickly by email.

Here is a link to a Canadian moissanite site. I have no experience with it, I mention it simply because sometimes it’s just easier to order in local currency. Their stuff looks nice, but I’ve found that in some cases their prices are comparable to Peoples or Ben Moss.
Looking forward to hearing other replies.

moissaniteco is a pretty great moissanite vendor. they sell amora enhanced moissanite that is enhanced by Betterthandiamond.com. From what i’ve seen, moissanite bracelets can get pretty pricey, so i don’t know if it’ll save you a lot of money or not. Also, i know schubach’s (sp?) sells moissanite as well and i’ve seen a lot of great pieces from them.
i personally bought my e-ring from moissaniteco.com and had a great experience with them! no complaints whatsoever!

I’m a Candian and Ontarian that ordered from MoissCo without any issues. The only thing to know (that I didn’t) was that FedEX will invoice you for the duty/customs so that’s not included in the shipping cost. Not a big deal, it was about $25.
I’ve had good experinces with Moissanite & Co. I bought a shared prong eternity band and about a year later a stone fell out. I sent it to them and they repaired it. That sort of thing can happen to any kind of jewellery so I don’t fault workmanship or anything. Plus, I imagine shared prongs are maybe slightly less sturdy?
All in all, I will purchase from them again.
Better Than Diamond makes lab sapphires so if you want a blue stone you can look into that as well. They have an amazing forum with tons of pictures and great information.
