thanks for sharing that.  my Fiance said I could upgrade my center stone one day (as an anniversary gift), so I’m going to choose moissanite. it’s nice to know it was endorsed by a jeweler you trust!

That’s awesome!  My jeweler suggested moissanite to me from the beginning.  He said he loves working with it.  He also said that he sold a lot of top quality diamonds around Christmas and still thinks moissanite is a great stone in his opinion!

Good to know! I think its great that a trusted jeweler is open to using moissanite and says its a great stone! Some jewelers don’t want to work with it which is a bad choice because moissanite is getting more and more popular.

This is good to hear! It’s nice to know some jewelers aren’t sticking thier noses up at a stone undoubtedly gaining popularity & a great reputation. I don’t currently own a moissy, but I’d love to “upgrade” to one in a larger size in the future & save my diamond to pass down to my children… I completely drool over them !!

So happy to hear that!  There are certain jewelers I won’t go to b/c they turn their noses down at moissanite.  Hmph!

Luckily he treated your questions and remarks about moissanite respectfully. I went into Kays and they were having a diamond event and the saleman was really pressing it on me. I told him I prefer moissanite but thanked him all the same. He looked at me with such pity and whispered “thats a shame, we tend to see that they just dont hold up like a diamond..” then I simply stated “thats interesting considering that although a diamond sets the mohs standard at a 10, a moissy is still a 9.25 hardness and even tougher in cleavage strength.” He looked at me wide eyed “I thought it was 8.5 on mohs?”

“Uhh no sir. Moissanite is a 9.25 and plenty strong enough to endure a lifetime as well as command a little respect.” and walked out of Kays I surely did.

:]

@Kat: That sucks! I hate when people are misinformed. Some people think moissanite clouds under a year. I’m glad you found a jeweler that’s open to it. A lot of them look down their noses and try to spread lies about moissanite.

@Kat: LOL, I just had a jewelry guy at Zales today say “Palladium? pfft, never heard of it” I told him it was in the platinum family and he gave me the strangest look while saying “oh, you mean platinum?” haha, i was giggling because he had my ring in his hand and obviously palladium doesn’t feel like platinum, but he insisted it was because he didn’t know what palladium was. poor man, just like your salesman, totally misinformed 🙁

@breezybri19: Hahah well my ring is going to be a custom moissanite, diamond, palladium combo so I’ll be excited to see all of the crazy remarks I get about that! :] But honestly, I’m pretty disappointed about a lot of jewelers in the community today. Looks like OP found herself a great jeweler who is well informed! I’m jealous! Lol I won’t let a jeweler handle my ring if they don’t know about anything other than diamonds, that’s just bad business practice IMO.
