Re: Bali Tanzanite

It appears that the Tanzanite stones used in the Bali pieces are opaque and not 'gem quaity' so that might be why they are priced much lower.

Re: Moissinite

I bought the inside-out hoops in rose vermeil! A while back I bought a pair of CZ hoops, from the LC, set in rosetone and they look identical in style to the Moissanite hoops, they even have the click-back closure. I love that style of the hoops with the click-back locking mechanism. They are very s...

Re: Moissinite

Charles Winston on JTV is not the original creator of Moissanite. He has his own line 'Moissanite Fire'. I don't know if that is graded or not. The original creator, as I mentioned earlier, is Charles & Colvard. They sell three grades of stones: Forever One Colorless (DEF), Forever One Near Colorles...

Re: Moissinite

Colored Moissanite was originally an accidental find but was then sold that way b/c the colored stones were attractive to those looking for something other than white. Sometimes a certain color is limited b/c of it's accidental nature and it cannot be recreated...a one and done type of thing and it'...

Re: Moissinite

Moissanite is super sparkly. I think it looks best in the smaller sizes. The larger stones don't look like diamonds but the smaller ones do. I have some hoop earrings and a pair of studs with Moissanite stones set in gold. If you prefer, you can take your Moissanite jewelry to a jeweler and have the...

Re: Paypal/Paypal Credit

I even contacted CS about the problem and all they said was they though it might be a browser issue but it's not. Same thing happens even when I use other ...
