You can sell the diamond for cash and get a Moissanite replacement jewel in your jewelry setting.
Go to to exchange Your diamond for a Moissanite stone and get cash for the balance, or to Sell Your diamond full for cash.
Moissanite jewelries are a better option compared to their diamond counterpart.
This makes Moissanite flawless compared to the naturally occurring diamonds.
A .5CT ideal cut I color diamond will be priced at$1400 or more while Moissanite of the same weight costs a mere $95.
Reviews of satisfied individuals reflect they found Moissanite far better than diamonds.
Moissanite a high quality gemstone is now giving diamonds a run for its money.
Those who traditionally believe in diamonds would not be able to identify Moissanite.
Since you are spending less for Moissanite you can utilize your budget towards other important aspects for example a perfect honeymoon, a good furniture etc.
• The hardness of Moissanite is almost identical to diamonds.
• Most importantly Moissanite is way cheaper than diamonds.
Moissanite is indistinguishable to diamonds.
Therefore your investment is sufficiently reimbursed and you get to keep your dignity by wearing the Moissanite jewelry.
Naturally occurring Moissanite are unsuitable for jewelry making.

Moissanite gems are spectacular and of all the diamonds I had purchased the moissanite has garnered more comments to my wife as yo how beautiful it is .also the fundamental makeup of moissanite is the same triangle molecular carbon as a diamond and therefore the diamond industry lobbied hard to get M declared a non-diamond , just as hard , more brilliant and much less blood spliled to get one .
Hi I have a 1 carat heart shaped moissanite ring 18ct & it is a beautiful ring it came with a certificate of authenticity to & I just ordered my 2nd 1 from Very.co.uk it has so much more fire & colour than a diamond.
When you pick out a diamond you must examine it carefully to make sure you are aware of the imperfections, yet with a moissanite you can rest assured knowing it’s flawless.
Moissanite has some incredible properties that make it ideal for jewelry In fact, it is more brilliant (sparkles) and more fiery (rainbow colors) than a diamond.

Our Diamond Simulants and Pure Carbon Created Diamonds are different from a CZ in four key ways: weight, hardness, coating, and chemical composition.
These differences result in a superior Diamond Simulant with qualities much closer to that of a mined diamond and Diamond Nexus Pure Carbon Created Diamonds which are the exact same as mined diamonds.
The coating seals the Diamond Simulant’s surface, greatly lowers porosity, and makes the stone impervious to outside contaminants.
Finally, where the best quality diamonds and Diamond Simulants have a D color (meaning virtually colorless), a moissanite stone has a slight green tint to it that becomes more noticeable with increasing carat sizes.
Our Pure Carbon Created Diamonds, on the other hand, are chemically made up of solely Carbon (C), just like a mined Diamond.
Moissanite’s higher index of refraction (brilliance) and much greater dispersion (fire) than either a diamond or Diamond Simulant make it easy with the naked eye to distinguish a Moissanite from our stone and from a diamond.
Below you will see two charts from an independent lab report which shows a spectrographic analysis for CZ and for our Diamond Simulants (not to be confused with our Pure Carbon Created Diamonds).
The average hardness of a Diamond Simulant is a 9.1-9.2 on the Mohs’ hardness scale, much closer to that of our lab diamonds (and mined) that are a perfect 10.

Lab created diamonds are physically, optically, and chemically indistinguishable from natural diamonds, while moissanite is composed of silicon carbide and compositionally and visually quite different from a real diamond.
If you are considering a moissanite engagement ring because of the lower price point, but have concerns about the color or brilliance, then you may want to consider other diamond and gemstone options.
With so many decisions involved in choosing an engagement ring (to say nothing of planning a wedding!), we’d like help clarify some of the differences between a genuine diamond and the diamond simulant moissanite.
When comparing the two in this category, it can be easy to distinguish a moissanite from a real diamond, since some complain that moissanite’s heightened brilliance can create a more gaudy, disco ball effect, especially in sunlight and as stones increase in size.

It has a huge amount of benefits (including being sparklier than a diamond), and many less disadvantages (ever heard of “blood diamonds“?).

The lower refractive index of CZ causes the stone to exhibit substantially more "windowing" than a Moissanite or diamond and gives CZ what many women refer to as a "glassy" appearance.
Given the inferior refractive index of a CZ compared to a diamond or Moissanite, even a little bit of dirt can make the CZ appear dull or lifeless.
Since the refractive index of CZ is substantially lower than Moissanite (1.8 – 2.17 compared to Moissanites 2.69), the result is that although a CZ may look pretty when viewed from the top, but when viewed at various angles many dark or black spots can appear, making it easy to spot as a "fake".
In the end, CZ is great for cheap fashion jewelry, but is simply too soft for jewelry if you intend to wear it frequently (i.e. bridal jewelry), it has too strong an affinity to dirt, and its optical properties (luster, fire and brilliance) all fall short when compared to a Moissanite.

Another user here (for the life of me I cannot remember her name) ordered a loose moissanite to compare to her diamond in another setting and you couldn’t tell the difference because both stones were under a carat.
I think she has one ring that has a moissy center stone and two diamond side stones.
I don’t have any photos, but I’ve looked at my ring (with an ehnaced moissanite set in it) right next to lots of diamonds.
Hi all! I decide to create this thread to show you pics of a diamond ring vs a forever brilliant moissanite ring I just got from moissaniteco.
I believe the user Ada *I think that’s her user ID* has a ton of diamonds and moissanite side by side photos.
I have a Moissanite engagement ring, and a lot of people wouldn’t “approve” just because it isn’t a diamond.
My stone sometimes looks slightly warmer than someone else’s ring (since it’s about H color) but other than that I’ve seen no difference.

Below is a table comparing our pricing for a GIA-certified round diamond (with I-color and VS2 clarity), a moissanite stone (non-enhanced), and a Forever-Brilliant moissanite stone (color-enhanced).
Do Amore is proud to be knowledgeable in conflict-free diamonds, moissanite, forever brilliant moissanite, and other stone options so please feel free to contact us with any questions.
While moissanite does not replicate the look of a diamond exactly, at the end of the day it presents a viable option for those not wanting to purchase a diamond for budgetary or other reasons.
Moissanite is not colorless and many feel that its color is similar to a GIA-certified K-color diamond.
Additionally, moissanite is less likely to attract grease or dirt than a diamond and should keep the ‘sparkle’ longer in between cleanings.
For those wanting a near-colorless stone, color-enhanced moissanite (such as Forever Brilliant moissanite) is a great option as it is noticeably less yellow (more colorless) than a non-enhanced moissanite.
Many compare color-enhanced moissanite to a GIA-certified H-color diamond.
While a diamond’s price varies based on cut, clarity, and other individual characteristics, moissanite stones are usually the same price and vary only with size and type of moissanite (enhanced or non-enhanced).
Moissanite disperses light very well and is actually more brilliant than a diamond.
I have a 3.00 carat black diamond & just purchased a 1.5 carat Moissanite.
Overall, moissanite is a fraction of the cost of a diamond.
On the Mohs Scale of Hardness, moissanite is rated as a 9.25, which is a great score that is higher than any gemstone used in jewelry besides diamonds.
I would never be able to buy a diamond as beautiful as the moissanite gem.

While certified diamonds are graded on color and can be compared with one another, moissanite stones are not graded on color.

But since synthetic moissanite tests as diamond on thermal testers, a thermal test alone is not conclusive.
Synthetic moissanite’s thermal properties are so close to those of diamond, however, that thermal diamond testers register synthetic moissanite as genuine diamond.
This article will examine what moissanite is, explain tests to identify and separate synthetic moissanite from diamond and describe new test equipment designed specifically to detect synthetic moissanite.
For those readers with the equipment and skill to conduct gemological tests, differences in the physical properties between diamond and synthetic moissanite are listed in the chart in Fig.
Colorless synthetic moissanite suitable as a diamond substitute was not produced in commercial quantities until late 1997 and not widely marketed until 1998.
Special synthetic moissanite testers must now be used to establish a diamond’s authenticity.
In an experiment conducted in late 1997, 40 jewelers and pawn shop owners incorrectly identified synthetic moissanite, a new diamond substitute, as genuine diamond.
There is little confusion between synthetic moissanite and diamond when subjected to standard gemological testing under a jeweler’s microscope or polariscope.
Standard diamond testers, which measure thermal conductivity, will not detect moissanite; moissanite passes as genuine diamond on thermal diamond testers.
Synthetic moissanite is doubly refractive; natural diamond is singly refractive.
Synthetic moissanite, for example, is doubly refractive; diamond is singly refractive.
Synthetic moissanite absorbs ultraviolet, diamond transmits or passes ultraviolet.
The alternative to detecting synthetic moissanite with automatic test equipment is to conduct a traditional gemological inspection.
Moissanite testers detect the difference in electrical conductivity and signal which material, diamond or moissanite, is being analyzed.
Various catalysts added to the synthetic moissanite crystals to enhance growth increase electrical conductivity.

Furthermore, synthetic, as an adjective, is defined as: “made artificially by chemical synthesis, especially so as to resemble a natural product.” The term synthesis is defined as: “the formation of compounds through one or more chemical reactions involving simpler substances.” Lab-created diamonds are NOT created by a chemical reaction of two or more simpler substances, but by crystal growth process, atom by atom, the same as in nature.
We’ve addressed the confusion between lab-created diamonds and mined diamonds, so let’s now illuminate the differences between lab-created diamonds and these other diamond-like materials, and explain why Gemesis does not agree with the use of the term synthetic in reference to lab-created diamonds.

We have completed the waiting list for the 6.5mm (1ct diamond equivalent) size in our Amora enhanced Moissanite and all remaining inventory has been added to our website and is available for immediate purchase.
This photo is quite zoomed up but what you are seeing are termed ‘parasitic deposits’ which is where cubic Moissanite (or even regular Moissanite), if you are not careful, will start growing *everywhere* in the growth chamber to the point that the run has to be stopped, usually before the Amora Gem has reached its desired size.
Insider knowledge – cubic moissanite growing during Amora Gem growth process: I thought I’d share something we’ve never shown publicly before.
The goal though is to be able to offer white lab grown diamonds in volume for our rings so that you could have an Amora Gem center and Takara white side diamonds, for a 100% lab grown, environmentally friendly ring.

Most people who were checking out my ring didn’t even ask "Is it a diamond?" They just assumed the stones were diamonds and I didn’t bother to correct them.
Also, the moissanite does seem pretty, but might she be uncomfortable showing off her ring with a gem that doesn’t sound familiar to people? "Is that a diamond?" "No, it’s moissanite." "What’s moissanite?" etc.
(And some strange looks from morons when I try to explain to them that, yes, it still counts as an engagement ring even though it’s not a diamond, there aren’t any laws about that.) And, two women I know have since gotten engaged with colored stone rings.
If she wants a traditional ring, and you are trying to avoid blood diamonds (is that it?), then definitely look for some estate rings, or perhaps an estate diamond (here estate = used) and have it re-set.
They are family owned, super nice and were not at all snobby about the fact that we weren’t buying a diamond ring (lots of other DC jewelry stores totally blew us off when they realized we weren’t spending thousands and thousands of dollars on a ring).
An antique ring with an authentic diamond may cost a bit more, but the plus side is that many vintage and antique styles utilize settings that really make a smaller stone pop–my stone looks nearly twice its size due to the way it’s set.
(I’m sorry, I meant to say that an antique ring with an authentic diamond may cost a bit more than a ring with an alternative stone.
My husband was able to get much bigger stones than what he’d be able to afford if they were real diamonds; I’d rather have visible moissanite than a tiny chip of a diamond.
I got a three stone moissanite engagement ring and I think it’s great.

With more brilliance and luster than any popular gemstone—including emerald, diamond, sapphire, or ruby, no other gemstone or jewel compares to moissanite.
True Moissanite™ comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and Limited Warranty guaranteeing you that your moissanite jewel will maintain its brilliance and fire, without fading or changing color.
Moissanite’s superior brilliance and luster—its ability to reflect more white light back to the viewer—is another reason women around the world are choosing to own this incredible jewel.
Proven to be harder than ruby, sapphire or emerald and second only to diamond, moissanite is also extraordinarily heat resistant, durable and tough.
Adding to the brilliance, moissanite costs considerably less than commonly desired gemstones and jewels, including diamond.
With a refractive index of 2.65-2.69 moissanite has nearly 10% more brilliance than diamond.

She will absolutely and appreciate your sweet gesture, and surely will whatever you give her… but if you asked her right now: Moissanite or real diamonds- the girl will want real diamonds.
I agree with the other posters who suggest getting something really nice that is not any kind of imitation of "the real thing", something you can afford.
Clearly the #1 choice would be real diamonds, but at this point we’re still paying off our huge european trip and credit cards.
I agree with the other posters who suggest getting something really nice that is not any kind of imitation of "the real thing", something you can afford.
And some of us are practical when it comes to this kind of thing – I’d feel awkward if my SO bought me expensive diamonds when I knew he couldn’t afford it.
This has lead me to research Moissanite "diamonds", but it seems like there are a lot of opinions and scams around scientifically grown diamonds.
Wow thats kinda creepy lol.. I myself vote for smaller real ones and if you shop around you can get a decent deal prob get a pair of plain studs for near or under 100 bucks.

I know I can’t speak for all women… but I will will say this WITHOUT FAIL- I would rather small, real diamonds than larger, artificial diamonds.
Still, ignorance and effective marketing mean that many people are dazzled by diamonds and accept no substitutes.

First discovered in a meteorite in 1893 by Henri Moissan, the mineral moissanite is rarely found in it’s natural state here on Earth.
Moissanite is a valuable and viable alternative to natural diamonds for wedding jewelry; as long as you understand the mineral.
moissanite is still classified as a ‘man made’ synthetic mineral, and it’s popularity has not been fully tested with the passing of time.
Synthetic moissanite made it’s debut in 1995, and gained popularity very quickly in the precious gems market.
Moissanite is an attractive alternative to the natural diamond – until the next descovery makes it a passing fad.
Their efforts paid off, and the synthetic version of the natural mineral moissanite was perfected.
If you are looking for a stone with an impressive and superior array of fire and flicker compared to diamond, then moissanite is the stone of choice.
Moissanite stones, compared to the price of diamonds, are in the neighborhood of 70% of the cost of natural diamonds.

So the diamond testers designed to distinguish diamond simulants like cubic zirconia will not identify moissanite.
Moissanite has a specific gravity of 3.2, which is fairly close to that of diamond (3.5 to 3.53). Cubic zirconia, by contrast, is extremely dense, with a specific gravity of 5.6 to 6.
First, moissanite’s hardness (8.5 to 9.25 on the Mohs scale) is closer to that of diamond; CZ by comparison has a hardness of 8 to 8.5. This difference in hardness affects not only durability, but also moissanite’s appearance – a cut moissanite has facets that are nearly as crisp as those of a diamond.
As a diamond simulant, moissanite is superior to cubic zirconia in two ways.
So Charles & Colvard is trying to market moissanite not as a diamond simulant, but as a gemstone in its own right.
New diamond testers had to be introduced, which included an electrical conductivity tester that could differentiate between diamond and moissanite.
The other issue is cost – the limited availability of moissanite makes it about 120 times more expensive than cubic zirconia.
Though moissanite represents an advance over cubic zirconia, it does have some shortcomings.

Forever Brilliant Moissanite Charles & Colvard has invested a great deal of resources to create the most advanced and enhanced moissanite stone to date.

To begin with off, lets just get a straightforward description and explanation of a diamond ring prong setting.
The diamond ring prong setting is in all probability the most popular of all for these picking a diamond ring.
4 or 6 prong settings are usually used despite the fact that you can go to 8 prong wherever 4 sets of two prongs grouped together offer extra safety for the diamond.
Thin metal prongs protrude from the base of the ring and maintain the diamond in position.
So how this can help is that even if your diamond ended up to get misplaced or stolen, this certificate will be the a single which allows the stone to be determined.
What does a diamond certificate contain? It has all the suitable data about a diamond like its size or fat, its reduce and any traits that it may well have like the color or markings if any.
