Moissanite

Hello!! I looked at moissanites in person at the Brilliant Earth showroom today and really liked them but I'm not sure if we should buy from brilliant earth or another Moissanite company. I've looked at Fire & Brilliance quite a bit as well as East West Gem co and am not sure which would be the best option! Any input? Would love to see some rings from Fire & Brilliance as well as any custom moissanites! I'm thinking a solitaire oval Smiley smile

    I've heard a lot of negative reviews about both Brilliant Earth and Moissanite Co. I like the YouTube videos from Fire & Brilliance but don't know much about their service. Mine was custom, but the stone was from Charles and Colvard. If you're able, I'd check out local independent jewelers that do moissanite and see if they'll put one on a setting for you.

    I second this! My moissanite is from Charles and, Colvard- they created the moissanite! I have had my engagement ring since March 2018- I worked in sales selling granite/ marble and, have waited tables since then. Needless to say I have very physical jobs and, even if it’s not been cleaned the Stone always looks very brilliant and, does not chip or, scratch. Moissanite 1

    Charles & Colvard are some of the best Moissanites and they provide stones for most of the other companies that sell Moissanite jewelry. You could look at their website

    Charles & Colvard 100%. I am in love with my ring, It's sparkle is amazing and the quality is great.


    Here is a pic, but trust me when I say it doesn't do it justice.

    Thanks Cassie!! It is beautiful!! My worry with Charles & Colvard is that online they look a little Rainbow-y. Does it look overly Rainbow-y with the sparkle in person??? Were you able to see them in person anywhere before you purchased?

    I didn't see it in person before, I actually had no idea until my fiance gave it to me. Helzberg Jewlers do carry them, so if you have one close by you can view it.


    I see no Rainbow -y in my ring. I do have the Forever One - Colorless Moissanite, so I am not sure if that make a difference. It has more sparkle (or brilliance as they call it ) then a diamond but I don't think rainbow when I see it.

    If you haven't already, check out their webiste. They have a warranty that they will keep their brilliance forever ( I know this is for the Forever One stone, not sure if it applies to all) or be replaced and also I think you have 90 days to return if your unhappy.

    All moissanites have some degree of rainbow. It's not really in your face, most people would not know the difference.
    If going with C&C, absolutely get a Forever one. The other lines have been discontinued. The hearts and arrows cut has a more diamond like twinkle. The round brilliant has more of a long, spiky sparkle.
    Mine is a colorless and I love it. The near colorless has a slight yellow tint, which is the point.
