Moissenite does come in different grades like diamonds, the J channel sells 80% of what they do not think is good enough to use at wholesale prices to other networks.

Many places that sell Moissanite, other than C&C, don't certify/grade their stones. If you want it certified you'll need to have a jeweler send it to a gem lab for certification which will cost anywhere from $150 to $300 depending on the size of the stone and which lab is testing it. As far as I can tell none of the shopping networks sell certified Moissanite so you really don't know what you're buying as far as quality of stone.

It is very pretty, but J's prices are so good on diamonds, I can get a one carat setting for less than what some of the M costs, and I prefer the diamonds, plus there is the value.

@silleemee

Thanks for the update. I was unaware the patent had run out for C & C. I learn something almost every day here.

When did SLC start selling this?? I thought only had J. Channel sold this jewelry. So expensive on J. I don’t care for it, unfortunately. Did like my lustrous Stella piece I bought from here over a month ago. Hope it’s less expensive here than J, for the people who like it.
WARNING! I few years ago I was able to purchase Moissante studs here. I was SO excited, since I had heard so much about this diamond alternate from a story on our local news. (A story discussing diamond options for those trying to reduce cost of engagement rings). When they arrived, they were a pale greenish yellow. Not attractive at all. I have since been buying it from a competitor (J), and it is outstanding. It is NOT cheap, but well worth it to me. It is 9.2 on the hardness scale, and prettier than any diamond I could buy. If you plan to buy it, do your research and go for highest grade or don't bother. Just my experience and opinion. Buyer beware.
