I am so sorry that you were ripped off but I have to correct you here. Saying “moissanite from India is not real” is a blanket statement and is wrong. Many Bees here are purchasing genuine moissy from India. Please see the “bought a cheap moissy from India” thread that has over 2,000 posts in it. There are many reputable sellers in India and some that are shady. I personally have purchased over 7 stones and every single one of them is real moissy. Many of them sell on Ebay. There are now some very reputable sellers out of China as well. Once C&C lost the patent, it opened up the opportunity for anyone to create, cut and sell moissanite. A rough start for many of them, but improvements are happening literally by the day. Some of the stones are quite bad, (asking for pictures and video of the actual stone you’ll get is a must), and some are now being sold as very white, with specific color grades to them and the cuts on moissy are improving all the time. Some of the stones are very well cut. Again, I am sorry you have had a bad experience and truly hope you get a full refund thru your Etsy sellers.
