There are too many complaints to note, but some compliments too. Just search the company name. 

Re your question on colour, there’s almost no difference between D & E colour. Most companies don’t even really differentiate much and say the colour is D/E/F. 

All very white.

kendra33 :  If you search online and previous threads you’ll find several reviews. 

Have you seen a moissanite in person? It’s not everyone’s cup of tea. In general, I wouldn’t recommend moissanite if you’re looking for a stone that looks like a diamond.

Do some searches on here! Tons of bees have moissanite, myself included. I have a def color, and it’s stunning. Idk what others are saying why it doesn’t look like a diamond, cause mine 100% does. But I didn’t get it to pass it as a diamond, I got it because I don’t believe in the diamond industry. 

I got mine from a Chinese vendor, Provence Gems. It’s a risk, but a happy risk we took! I would reconsider MoCo though. The True Gem has some stunning rings!

kendra33 : To me, I find the double refraction in moissanite immediately recognizable. Personally, I find it very plasticky/fake-looking. Plus it’s not mind clean, in that someone with a moissanite who wants to pass it off as a diamond will know it’s a moissanite and may worry others recognize it as such. That is why, depending on budget, I usually suggest a lab diamond or gemstone instead.

kendra33 :  I had the AGS000 and chose an E color because I didn’t want it to look unnaturally white and my mined diamond is an F. Not sure if there is really much of a difference between DEF in moissanite. I think it’s just what you want to see on your cert.

Yeah, I wouldn’t worry about not liking moissanite in person, unless you’ve always had your heart set on a diamond. When I finally saw one in person it was even more beautiful than I expected.

My friend got her ring from https://fireandbrilliance.com/ and had a wonderful experience. I got my ring from https://www.brilliantearth.com/ and they have moissinate as well. If you live near a store, you can see them in person. Brilliant Earth though has slightly inflated prices, in my opinion.

I had a good experience with Moissanite Co with my ring. I purchased a 7mm D-F F1 and I think it’s beautiful. I haven’t had any quality issues with my setting or stone. It was shipped pretty fast to me once it was made

I’ve had a diamond, a white sapphire and a moissanite. I love them all. 

And ‘mind clean’ is just a made-up term that some Bees use. It’s a thing some people feel if they’re trying to convince themselves that moissanite is a diamond. It’s not, but it’s spectacular anyway.

Hereforthecake :  mind-clean was a term originally used for clarity. As in, you know the stone is beautiful but you can’t get it out of your head that it’s only an I1 clarity grade and that spoils it for you. Regarding moissanite mind-clean once again acknowledges the beauty of the stone, but the fact that it’s not a diamond spoils it for you. It’s not a made up term, and I think it accurately describes some people’s thought processes.
