I hate sales people.  I have the opposite happen to me.  I often just want to look (DH and I are jewelers, so we like to look), and it is really hard to do because the salespeople try to attack us and show us everything.  I am sorry that happened to you though.  Who knows, maybe that person was having a bad day.

I heard that JCP only stocked moissanite rings a long time ago when moissanite was new. so it probably looked crappy because I think the quality of those stones has been improved since then.

boo on JCP for being snobby. I mean, it’s JC Penney for crying out loud, not Barneys!  You should have told him that, hee hee. I like shopping at JCP, but I like it because it’s usually low key and not snobby.

This happened to me in every jewelry store! I even tried to dress super classy and look a little older, and I was treated rudely in every store. No one would size my finger– they kept saying, “your fiance will purchase the ring, and THEN we’ll size it.” I ended up going to Kohl’s and having some 17 year old size my finger, because she didn’t care.

They especially got weirded out if I asked to look at Moissanite. It was like they knew I was planning on ordering online. I really think a lot of jewelers are losing out to online orders these days.

The moissanite at JCP was definitely gray/green and eerily sparkly. My moissanite from moissaniteco looks way better.

But boo to being treated rudely at jewelry stores! I’ve seriously had to stand at a counter for 10 minutes before anyone will help me.

Every time I’ve looked at moissanite at JCP it’s had that greyish green tint to it, I think they are still selling merch from before the enhancement option became standard.

I LOVE moissanite, but it just never looks good at JCP and you’re right, it’s way too pricey for what you can buy online.

I had the same exp at JCP! The moissanite they had looked awful! And she was such a bitch! $2000 for a 1ct unenhanced stone is crazy! My 1.25ct enhanced stone didn’t cost that much.
I know the Helzberg here carried them for a while and when we went to look at them, the sales lady was happy to show it to us. She even gave us the history of moissanite and it’s properties.

I hear Khols also carries moissanite, but I have never gone to check.

I saw moissanite in person (at a random little store) once before buying mine from Moissanite & Co. The ones they had were noticably yellow. My moissy looks nothing like that at all.

$2000 is definitely over priced too.

If you want, you could order a loose stone from Moissanite & Co. so you could have a look at it, then you could return it for a full refund (minus shipping fees).
