@sherryberry: cool!

I wonder if I could get my own flawed diamond enhanced? it has a visible inclusion and small chips around the girdle.

I know that you would not want to buy an enhanced stone, but if yours is already flawed, would you get it fixed?

I’ve never heard of Russian or Chinese Moissainite. I’ve only ever heard of stuff created by Charles & Colvard.

@KLP2010: Us Canadians tend to spell things the British way. Both spellings of each word are technically correct.

@KLP2010: Jewellery/jeweller is a non-American-English thing (i.e. UK, Canada, etc.).

Also, sherryberry, that’s all interesting stuff! Interesting to know that moissanite is used industrially too, I didn’t know about that.

@sherryberry: I just read a little more and it sounds like there’s a chance it might weaken the stone a little. It was an entire year before I even noticed the flaw anyway, I think I will not get mine ehnanced!

I’m interested in the Russian vs. Chinese moissanites… As far as I know, Charles & Colvard have the patent on moissanite for another few years (I think 2015? 2025? something like that) so unless it’s produced under-the-table or something, the only moissanite available is C&C moissanite.  Unless he meant Russian Brilliants, which are just ordinary CZs.
