Hello LuckyDucky!  Welcome.

There have been many posts about the moissante rings.  From what I’ve gathered so far they are a great alternative to diamonds and def have some great sparkle to them!  I believe, however, that there have been some negative reviews on them as well with the fact that the stone tends to turn a yellowish tint over time.

As far as what websites to go?  I couldn’t help you there.  Sorry.

Welcome!! I was totally in your boat, and was 95% sure we were going moissanite but I JUST went ring shopping this weekend with the Fiance (we’re doing things kinda back words and wacky). Anyway years ago we went to the Pasadena Jewelry mart and the ladies at Prestige Jewelry were unbelievable. We went back this weekend and it was the same, it’s by far the best customer service I’ve ever received in my life. They are absolutely no pressure and the service is great and they are SO informative. My point being we were asking her all sorts of questions about diamond alternatives and she showed us some amazing things. We saw white sapphires which are really pretty and they’re still on my list but what she showed me that was down right shocking were the new CZ’s from Japan. Now don’t get me wrong my Fiance and I BOTH were totally against going the CZ route until she pulled out a CZ and then pulled out an $8400 diamond (just the diamond not the band included) you could absolutely NOT tell the difference. When I asked her what the price was I was floored . . . $20 . . . WHAT for a 1 carat CZ $20. I thought she was teasing me and she laughed she said she see’s stuff online all the time for $200 and up and is just floored but she also said that since she deals in wholesale it also helps her out. She did say that over time since the CZ is not as hard as a diamond it would have to be changed out (but who cares at $20), white sapphires won’t but they don’t have the depth of diamonds but they’re really pretty and clear. She was happy to let us try out a ton of stuff and I think we found a ring and wedding band all for WELL under what we originally planned on spending. Just to give you a hint on her prices she showed me a very thin maybe 2mm half eternity diamond band in 18k white gold for $150. A plain thin 18K white gold band goes for $75. She even showed us some e-ring options with diamonds that were completely affordable and shockingly nice, not yellow or beige in color, nice and clear. Anyway I’ve gone on forever. The Pasadena Jewelry Mart is at 230 E Colorado, Pasadena, Her booth is C4 (I think but their name is Prestige Jewelers). If it’s not too far you might want to check it out.

As far as checking moissanite out in stores I think I noticed that JC Penny carries them if you go to the moissanite site there a place to look up stores near you.

Good Luck.

I’m (pretty sure) I am getting this one from Moissanite Co. It is the equivalent of 1 carat and will cost a little over $1,000. Also comes with a band, which was a must for my bf (smart man!)

I researched and researched (I’m taking hours and days) about this and about rings.

I found Moissanite Co. to have the best prices and all their stones are from Charles & Colvard, currently the only company to have a patent for creating moissanites. The ring comes with a certificate of authenticity and a life time warranty!

Also, don’t know if there’s a Helzberg in your area, but they are phasing them out and the store in town still has some left. Put in your zip code on this page and Charles & Colvard will tell you where moissanites are sold in your area.

If you have any questions, send me a message!

They don’t turn yellowish over time. They just tend to look different in different lights. Sometimes my moissy has the slightest gray-green tint, hardly noticable and only on very overcast days.  I didn’t even notice it until I looked for it. I’ve received a ton of compliments on my ring.

It sparkles like you wouldn’t believe and looks very bright in most light. Moissaniteco.com is an awesome website with tons of designs, good prices and customer service. They’ll also do a custom ring or modify a ring if you ask them. They’re very good to work with. I even lost my receipt and they used our credit card to send it to us again πŸ™‚

 

Luckyducky- that solitaire was on my wishlist but my fiance picked a different one. I love how low the setting is πŸ™‚

 

P.S. The moissanite in JC Penney is being phased out. Their seem to jack up their prices however. I noticed that the sale price of a pendant was more than the regular price on Moissaniteco.com. Happy shopping πŸ™‚

By any chance, could any of you moiss bees take a video of your ring? I’d love to see the stone in action!

@ToasterCat: Have you uploaded videos to youtube before? It’s easy enough, uploading is just a little slow. There’s also Vimeo, but I haven’t tried it before.
