Oh Jared.  I love their jewelry but that is blatantly bad sales advice.  A good jeweler will try to get you the best piece of jewelry in your price range and an even better one will try to sell you on less expensive stones if a decent diamond is out of your price range.  My first engagement ring was an unfired blue ceylon sapphire; way cheaper than a comparable diamond and I loved it since people always noticed that I had a non-diamond ring.  That said, I would happily wear Mossainite (sp?), CZ, or glass because if it’s in a nice setting only you and your jeweler will really know that it’s not a diamond.

… what? If a salesperson told me that I’d burst out laughing right there. I agree with sylvia.riggle, maybe it was a miscommunication.

Must have either been desperate or a miscommunication, otherwise we have a bunch of lawbreakers on this board.

I would promptly call that store and speak with the manager, and let him/her know you’re going to be finding a new jeweler and tell them exactly why. How absurd!

Wow – no.

When we were ‘just looking’ our hometown jeweler even showed us moissanite rings and earrings.  They sell it more in costume-y pieces and earrings, but will do anything.  She was even telling us how she wanted some huge earrings for Christmas so her husband was getting her a pair of Moissanite earrings because she was more about the bling.  🙂

Definitely not illegal. It sparkle enough that if it were we’d all be in jail. I’m not really surprised though. A jeweler at Kay’s tried telling that the company that makes it was running out of it. 

And ring porn for funzies

Maybe the jeweller thought you meant passing off moissanite as diamonds (as a seller) which I guess would be illegal?
