Hi ladies, I read somewhere that you can’t think of moissy carats the same way as you would a diamond because it is a different gemstone. So now I’m confused. I saw a 2ct princess/square brilliant cut diamond in an HSN video that I love. Not getting it from HSN, but yeah. Should I be looking at mm instead of cts? And does anyone have a “2.2ct” moissy from Moissanite Co., which is from where I am looking to get my ring? Thanks in advance for all help!

When they say carats, they mean you should think of it in terms of diamond carats. If you took a 2ct. moissanite and weighed it, it would not be 2ct. But they call it that so that people don’t get confused.

Thanks so much! I suppose I should read that guide on their site and stop drooling over the rings lol. I appreciate your help!

I love Moissanite and my family all have moissanite engagement rings. They are gorgeous! If you are looking for a great price, I just got myself a new ring at Tuesday Morning – they have a special deal where they are getting them directly from Charles and Colvard. Check out their website. http://www.tuesdaymorning.com and look at the moissanite rings. I got the 9.5mm moissanite with 2.5 ct diamond for 1695. and the moissanite is equivalant to a 3.5 ct. diamond!! It’s really “over the top”, but I’m a little crazy, so people expect that. They have a georgeous 1 Ct. for $499!

The Carat weigth is not the same, but is close. Most people like to know what a moissanite stone “size” is as comapred to the same Diamond carat weight. So for instance a 6.5mm round Moissanite would be equilivent to a 1.00 carat diamond although the Moissanite would actually weigh about .87 carats. The most important thing is to understand the relative moissanite sizes vs diamond sizes.
here is a link to a helpful chart that shows the moissanite in mm size and how it relates to the same size diamond for that carat weight.
let me know if you have any questions 🙂
