luot:  Those stones are beautiful!

I recently tried finding moissanite at a couple jewelry stores….nope! The girls who work there never heard of it! I would think that moissanite is competition for other stones, so jewelers aren’t going to carry it. As far as calling it a “fake” diamond, it is no more a fake diamond than CZ is. I guess some people take issue that people pass their moissies off as diamonds? I guess if I was trying to sell a $20,000 rock, and some one else could sell almost the same thing at a fraction of the cost, I’d be mad too, lol.

They all pretend it is worthless or don’t know what it is because they aren’t selling it. I LOVE my moissanite and don’t really understand the justifaction behind spending thousands and thousands on an “actual” diamond.

I’m not a fan of moissanite either. The reactions from the jewelers are pretty funny, though; especially the one who tried to sell you a diamond.

I’m not really surprised by their reactions (other than it being horrible customer service). I can see why they wouldn’t want to carry moissanite since it costs so much less than what they can sell a diamond for. It’s all about the money.

When I was looking for bands to go with my mossy & diamond e-ring one jeweler kept calling it a CZ. I would correct her but she would be really rude and repeat it often. She was giving me quotes on a custom band with diamonds so I don’t know why she would want to insult my ring, lol…then she told me she couldn’t size my e-ring because we can’t heat your ring. She was very rude and made me feel really embarrassed in front of the other shoppers. Needless to say, I did not purchase my wedding band from them. I’ve seen beautiful CZ e-rings so I wasn’t insulted by the CZ comment but it was the way she was saying it – like it was garbage.

luot:  One of the biggest reasons for the negativity is that many people purchase moissanites to pass them off as diamonds. Dont get me wrong, there are many moissy owners that are proud of their rings but there are also ladies that claim that they purchase them because moissanites are ethical but they turn around and say that is a diamond. With that being said, the jewelers you went to are very unprofessional. They should have just said that they were not interested. You will have better luck selling online or to a friend.

I’ve always thought it was weird that jewelers put down moisanites but then they us lab created sapphires and rubies, so ignorant.

So glad my ring is being made by an amazing jeweler who actually recommended moissy to us!

Why are you selling them? 

I heard moissianite had color to them, but I am surprised at how dark those are
