If you're concerned about quality when shopping for moissanite, these are the four things you need to avoid:
- Film coated or colour treated moissanites (most commonly pink stones). Moissanite does not naturally come in that colour, so a coloured film is applied over a colourless moissanite to obtain the colour.
- Moissanite comes in colourless, shades of yellow, grey, black, blue and green. Anything else is likely a coated product, which can come off over time. I do not use colours that are added through coating.
- Buying from non-reputable brands who do not offer certificates or warranties. All my gemstones over 0.5ct come with certificates of authenticity and a lifetime warranty against chipping and discolouration under normal wear.
- Even diamonds can chip if exposed to high heat and if banged / dropped on hard surfaces and the same goes for moissanite. We see this when people take their jewellery to bad jewellers who work on it without taking care to shield it from torch flames etc.
To date we have a zero return or claim rate on all our moissanite 🙂
