Moissanite Engagement Rings – How to Buy Them?

If you’re reading this, chances are you have taken the time to do some research on Moissanite engagement rings and have decided this might just be a viable option for you.

With so many of the great attributes of diamonds at an eighth of the price, why not, but how do you go about getting one? Getting one is not all that difficult but there are a few things you should know before you go.

C And C Makes The Stone For Me

All stones in Moissanite engagement rings are made by one company, Charles and Covard, LTD.

Unlike cubic Zirconia manmade gems, Charles and Covard hold the patent for making Moissanite stones and no one else in the market is allowed to use the process or produce the stones.

This gives them control over quality and quantity to assure you the buyer, are getting a genuine Moissanite stone.

Don’t Be Mollified, Get Certified

When you begin your search for Moissanite engagement rings, the first thing you want to make sure of is that the jeweler or dealer you are working with has the certification for the stones.

All Charles and Covard stones come with a Certification of Authenticity and you should not buy anything that does not include this certification. If the jeweler can’t produce it, chances are he is trying to sell you something other than Moissanite.

Although the grading for diamonds don’t really apply for Moissanite stones, most stones would be equivalent to a VS clarity and near color free. Just one more thing to keep in mind when you compare Moissanite to diamonds.

If I Were A Moissanite, Where Would I Be?

Since Charles and Covard patented the process in the mid 1990’s the number of certified dealers has grown at a phenomenal pace. One of the best places to start your search is online. This is the fastest and most cost effective way to get an idea of what rings are available and the cost of the style you desire.

Hundreds of dealers can be found not only online, but in yellow pages and other publications. If you are looking for a location close to you, the Charles and Covard website can give you the nearest certified dealer to your zip code.

As with any purchase of this magnitude, you want to make sure you pick a reputable jeweler or business you know you can trust. Purchasing Moissanite engagement rings from pawn shops, estate sales or antique stores can be risky at best, due to their lack of certification.

Sometimes you can find purchases in unusual locations that have the certification of the stone with them, just be very careful that you have the opportunity to have the stone appraised by a reputable jeweler, before you purchase.

Moissanite engagement rings offer you a great alternative to diamonds, with a look, quality and value you might have not thought possible. However, finding her the perfect ring, that tells her your heart’s story is what it’s really all about, so no one but you can say whether or not this is the perfect way to say I love you.
