someone correct me if I’m wrong but I believe Charles and colvard are sold at moissaniteco? I actually thought that’s where they originated from

Charles and Colvard supplies moissaniteco with their moissanite. However, moissaniteco screens for cut and I would highly recommend buying from moissaniteco. Moissanite.com does not screen for cut…you may get a dud.

scottielo:  The primary reoccuring problem is that some stones are cut too shallow.  I don’t remember the exact %, but I believe if its under 55% (dividing the depth, table to culet, by the diameter), you get the fisheye or dark table effect everytime.  However even if its 56% or higher you can sometimes get light leakage so its best to get an experienced eye to select the stone.

I wouldn’t get the asha. Go for the forever one Moissanite. The asha gets a weird coating on it that makes the stone look hazy. I had one in my e-ring and switched it out to a forever brillant OEC moissanite.
