Moissanite price range


#1

Hi,

Who has used Moissanite? The price per carat ranges considerably.
There were some on Ebay for much less than Rio. Does quality vary
much? In the past, I set a large clear CZ only to have it look like
cheap glass if it was not right out of cleaning. I want to avoid
that but can’t justify the cost of real diamond. Looking for about
7mm octagon. Do you know where the best prices are to be had for
just one stone??

Thanks
Diane

In defense of CZ… You can set large diamonds and have them look
just like cheap glass!

Hi Diane

I have used Moissanite in rings. The cost is a huge selling point
for clients.

When you get an ‘eye’ for it you can see the slight yellow hue in
sunlight…but indoors it looks great. The sparkle is super and
white. I can send a pict if you want to see.

The ‘green’ is more teal in colour but fine. They are easy to work
with and if chipped can be cut again. They do turn an interesting
shade of yellow when heated…that is slightly heart-stopping but
reverts back to normal when cooled and cleaned.

I suspect it was badly cut.
