Since the patent is up other companies are creating moissanite now. So I guess Neo is a new moissanite distributor. But I wouldn’t hold my breath on their claim to have the best moissanite.

I don’t know,  but their website clean and good looking. That is a plus.

I found this info on a site selling NEO:

“Round colorless 4H ideal cut round moissanite. The NEO is guaranteed not to change color under different light conditions. The NEO outperforms the 6H moissanite poly-type currently used in the market today. The ideal cut is faceted in a way that it cuts down the high dispersion to create shorter wave lengths of light thus making the appearance different from C&C’s round cut.”

You know, I’m really glad that we have more folks trying to fill the need for alternative stones.  I’m hoping for more options to pop out and gain popularity but we’ll see. 🙂

BitterGlitter:  It’s available for purchase if you have a wholesale license, so it is only a matter of time before it’s available retail! 🙂

It’s very exciting to see all the options opening up for Moissy as time goes on!

Unfortunately that entire website doesn’t have a single actual image or video of the stone (which I find odd).  Belvaggio designs only has CAD renderings of their products so that doesn’t help either.

Serenity Tech’s website has a picture:

http://www.serenitytechnology.com/index.php?m=categories&p=category_details&category_id=22

I have copied and pasted it below (I included the red arrows)

That dark center that the arrow is pointing to is referred to as a nail head in the diamond world.  It is exactly what I would expect from cutting a Moissanite to the ideal proportions of a diamond.  Moissanite has a different (and higher) refractive index than a diamond.  This means when light enters it moves more slowly.  If you consider how a pencil looks bent when you put it in a glass of water, its the same idea. 

Light changes direction when it enters the gemstone.  Because it moves slower through Moissanite, it changes direction different than a diamond, and so the angles of the gem have to be adjusted for this.  If you don’t you get light leakage, a dark table and overall less brilliance. 

I find it fascinating how many people including Moissanite sellers believe that the C&C round brilliant cut is done because they don’t know how or can’t cut it like a diamond.  But in reality it is cut the way its cut precisely because somebody in the company a long time ago knew what they were doing and developed the cut properly to maximize the fire and brilliance of the gemstone (which is the purpose of the cut).

The diamond standard is the standard for diamonds, not Moissanite, but we live in a world dominated by diamonds and its hard to convince people, even in the jewelry industry, that what is best for diamonds is not best for Moissanite. 

Here is an image of a Forever One Moissanite I took today.  You will notice, no dark table.

C&C had a brochure that talked about their cut in depth (and the science behind it).  I can include a link to it if anybody is interested in learning more about it.

michaelc:  Thank you for the information!!

IMO While I am excited to see new variants out there, I find no coincidence that this is on the heels of the distribution/release of the F1.  At this point I have my list of reputable mossy distributors that are established with a solid book of business.  If I’m going to spend that kind of money on a new rock, it won’t be on a spin off.

God bless commerce lol!  I love the bee, you ladies are such a great resource 🙂
