The Facts on Pink Moissanite

Date Added: 19/02/2014

Think Pink or Think Again?

Many of our customers have asked us for pink Moissanite stones or jewellery. However, we don't sell them, and we do not sell them for a reason...

The colour will not last.

 

All pink Moissanite stones in the market today are colour enhanced by a "coating" process to make them pink. It is not an acceptable process as the colour is not permanent. Jewellers who sell them lead you to believe that "under normal wear" the colour is permanent. You need to question these jewellers what is the definition of "normal wear"?

 

"Normal wear" in their definition certainly does not cover repairing, resizing or ultrasonically cleaning,  polishing and rhodium plating. Yet each of these processes will most likely be required for the lifetime of your jewellery.

The coating may also come off when it comes into contact with strong cleaning solutions, solvents, under high heat, boiling in acid and polishing of the coated surface. 

We have tested many pink Moissanite stones beyond "normal wear" and we have found that none have passed the colour permanency test. 

Pink moissanite does look a million dollars and the colour is vivid and exquisite. If you like the look and if you know what you getting then go ahead in owning one and enjoy wearing it. 

At Moi Moi take pride in standing behind our products, so until we can guarantee you the colour will last, and you will get a lifetime of enjoyment from your pink Moissanite jewellery, this is the reason we won't be selling this product.

The pink stones you see on our website, are Created Pink Diamonds. These are permanent colours of Created Diamonds and will never fade or lose their brilliance, colour or change their appearance.
