Charles and colvard ‘s prices will most likely remain the same. They will be releasing a colorless moissanite soon to keep up with amora gem ultra and other future competitors. It has taken years for them to achieve the quality of stone they have now, and it seems to get better every year. So im guessing that it will take these other moissanite vendors quite some time to achieve C&C standards. I personally would not put off buying a moissanite in hopes that these new comers will produce the same quality for less money, as this is very unlikely to happen right off the bat. Charles and colvard probably will not need to lower their prices, they have tons of marketing and are the creators of moissanite. I imagine they will remain the #1 moissanite source for years to come.

I disagree. My guess is that other companies have moissanites all ready in the works and have been working on perfecting the cut, etc. Just becasue the patent is still intact does not mean other companies are not doing research, etc. I do think the prices will drop due to competition. I would not be surprised if in a few years there will be other manipulations of the silicon stones,ie variations of the stone similar to the Amora gem.
