View full article

There is a jewel that has more sparkle than diamonds - and it goes by the name of Moissanite. Best of all, it costs about a tenth of the price of diamonds.

Sisters Alana Chang and Lauren Chang Sommer, from Moi Moi Fine Jewellery in the Queen Victoria Building are exclusive distributors of Charles & Colvard created Moissanite jewellery.

After opening their store about a year ago, Alana and Lauren have started free jewellery workshops to advise on how to pick a quality stone.

Alana said women were shown what jewellery suits them best based on their lifestyle and size needs.

"We also teach people on the history of diamonds and Moissanite, the karatage of gold and we show them how to look through a loupe magnifying glass correctly when choosing fine jewellery," she said.

Bookings for the workshops, held Tuesday and Thursday evenings, are essential.
