Hi Bees hope you are all well. 🙂
So I have decided to create a review about my experince (so far) with Moissanite and Co as I want people to have more of an understanding of what their options could be other than a diamond and possible a Moissanite.
I live in Australia Sydney and my boyfriend and I decided that we wanted to get engaged! So for months and months I have been researching all about diamonds with the Clarity, Cut, Colour prices and pretty went into every diamond store possbile atelast 3 – 4 times. My boyfriend wanted me to pick out a few options and then he will pick the one for me! After looking and looking the ring that I ideally wanted was wayyyy out of the budget and that is when I found Moissanites!!
So I started to do intense researching about Moissanites, and found that Australia does not have many moissanite stores at all. In fact Sydney only has 1 store and it is pretty much double the price to what you can order online! So that is when I discovered all of the reviews about Moissanite and Co. I was at first skeptical about ordering online especially because I am in Australia and everyone else was from America or Canada and I could not find any reviews from Australia!
After a few more weeks I narrowed down my 3 rings I wanted. I emailed Moissanite and Co a few times and they were so quick with their response – 24 hours and I also spoke to them on the chat which was extremelly helpful.
Now I am at the stage where my boyfriend HAS GOT THE RING!!! But I can not have it until he proposes, but he said is is extremelly happy with the ring and it is super sparkly. The shipping was also really fast he said, even though we are in Aus it only took make 5 days!!
So Bees I will keep you posted and fingers crossed I will not have to wait to much longer, but I jut wanted to write something from someone who is from Australia and their first hand experience with Moissanit and CO. Overall they have been an amazing company to deal with and have been extremelly efficient with their replies and also have so much information on the website. Overall the rings I have picked are a range from $1500 – $2350 and is a 1.5ct Round with a Cusion Halo Setting.
I will post my pictures ASAP! But hope this helps anyone out who is trying to decide if they want to take the Moissanite route! :):)

@hazeandwinter: Thanks for posting this! I live in NZ and I’m always a bit concerned with ordering things from the US. I’ve been looking at purchasing a setting from MoissaniteCo – too many gorgeous rings!! In Australia, are you required to pay any kind of customs fees?
Anyway, please keep us updated and I can’t wait to see your ring

Hi Bees, 🙂
So I am stillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll waiting! But its ok as I know it will be worth it!
But I was just thinking I should post the x3 rings that my partner was picking from, as alot of people dont actually post the rings that they have bought, and you have to try and figure out which one is theirs on the website!
So here are the 3 rings below:
So have a look and hopefully we wont have to wait much longer to see the real thing!!

thanks for the reply! 🙂
I am pretty sure that he did not have to pay any tax or customs fee’s on the ring. It sounds like it was really simple and easy. Pretty much just order the ring and then they will give you the tracking number and in a few days you have the ring.. (It sounds to good to be true! – but it really is that simple). And I am always the person where something always go wrong eithor we get charged fee’s, things get lost or it has been broken! But nothing like that happened.
If you have any worries or concerns, just online and speak to a Moissanite and Co team member on the live chat and they will deffinately be able to help you. But you will need to get up a little early as they will be closed by 10am Syd time due to the time difference.
Are feel free to ask me anything else. Happy to help in what I can, as I know how daunting it can be ordering from somewhere overseas, for something so important as well. :):)

SO IM ENGAGED BEES!!!
Super exciting.. He absolutely suprised me!! Such a great day..
I will post my ring up tonight so you can all have a look. But all I can say is IT LOOKS LIKE A DIAMOND!!! I love it as it is SOOOOO sparkly and everyone is saying it is one of the most beautiful rings they have ever seen. I honestly would not be able to tell the difference if I didnt know it was a moissanite!
There is a teeny yellow tinge in different light but I think I am just trying to pick out the flaws so to the normal eye you would not be able to notice!
All I can say is BEST DECISION EVER!
