    I’m considering moissanite earrings in the future. I’ve never seen them in person but they look pretty. I’d like to see what happens to the price after the patent ends, though. They currently seem quite expensive for lab-created stones at the moment.

    What I have heard is that moissanite is more sparkly, but if it’s unenhanced it’s sometimes ever so slightly yellow. The price difference is no contest though.

    @Butterbee: Someone said 2015, so not terribly soon.

    The moissanite rings I’ve seen on here have pretty much all been gorgeous.

    Moissanite has double refractive qualities, meaning they tend to sparkle more than diamonds.

    Personally I prefer a diamond’s sparkle to a mossy sparkle.

    I would definitely look into mossy for stud earrings though as I’d like to wear them a lot and would feel more comfortable wearing less expensive mossy on a daily basis then wearing diamonds.

    There are some beautiful mossy rings on here. Use the search box to search for moissanite threads and you’ll find lots of pictures.

    I have a Moissanite and I LOVE IT! It has twice the sparkle of a diamond so yes you can see a difference. And if you stay around 1 ct you wont have much of a issue with the yellow or if you go over 1ct you should look into enhanced! 

    I have 101 reasons why i have a moissy!  (well maybe not 101 but i have alot) I can answer most of the questions you have! Ill even post a picture or 2 for you!

    i did not know about moissy before i started coming here (which was AFTER i got engaged). i think if i had known about moissanite before the engagement, i would have considered it. i can’t say for sure if i would or would not have gotten a moissy because i still haven’t seen one in person, but based on the internet pics and videos… i would have at least considered it.

    Absolutely, but then again, I have moissanite.  🙂  Mine isn’t over a carat, so it doesn’t look yellow either.  I get nothing but complements on it and when people ask about it, I immediately tell them it’s moissanite.  Most people have never heard of it and are excited about it!

    @ReyDar64: It depends what cut are you looking into getting? 

    ETA: They are about $350 not including the setting.
