I wouldn’t do small moissy. I understand it’s very brittle when used as melee. I’d go with diamond.

There are very few jewelers who take moissanite seriously, and the two or three that I did find went with Charles and Colvard. That being said, they don’t manufacture moissanite in the pave size but other brands do. One jeweler told me that they stuck with Charles and Colvard because the other brands would chip. C and C has a lifetime warranty if you do have an issue with it.

Apparently when stones get super small, there isn’t a huge price difference between lab diamonds and moissanite anyway. I also don’t see a smaller stone is a secure setting chipping very easily. So I don’t think you can go wrong either way!
