I am a little confused where did you buy this ring that you feel ripped off? Moissy isn’t really that expensive to begin with so I am not sure why someone would scam a moissy instead of a diamond?

Very glad you love you ring though

If I wash my hands in cold water, my moissanite fogs up for about a minute. I’ve owned diamonds, ruby, sapphire, cz etc..and ive found that my moissanite is the only stone that does this.So I’m not sure if that’s just a moissy thing or not, but you could try it and see what happens?

OldGold:  no problem! I’m sure your stone is in fact a moissanite. Would you mind posting a picture of it?

OldGold:  WOW – that set is beautiful! I absolutely love it. Lucky girl.

As a side note – my jeweller is always the first to tell me the quality of a piece of jewellery. He’s very honest and it’s so sad that jewellers get such a bad rap. FWIW, like anything else – there are dishonest people and jewellery is one of those things (like cars) where you need an expert. 

I would be completely satisfied that you got what you paid for. Mrs. Sloan knows her diamonds and moissanite! I’m glad she was able to put your mind at ease 🙂

OldGold:  An experienced jeweler is more reliable than a electronic tester anyday.  OEC moissies will show as diamonds and so will Amora Gem on some of the testers.  I had one of those gold buyers/pawn shops mistake diamonds for cz because they used a tester and I got a great deal!  I feel bad for the person they ripped off who lost out on getting paid correctly for their diamonds.

OldGold:  I thought you went with a moissy-diamond tester.  Those are the ones I’m familiar with.  Some of them will say if it is cz if it is not the other two materials.
