Does moissanite have any drawbacks?

Be careful of this when purchasing moissanite
Here are two things to keep in mind when purchasing moissanite.Please check before purchasing
1. Check 4CLike diamonds, moissanite also has the 4Cs. The 4Cs are the following four ● Carat, which indicates weight ● Cut, which indicates brilliance ● Color, which indicates color ● Clarity, which indicates transparency It is well known that the price of a diamond changes depending on its 4C rank, but in reality, there is no 4C certificate for moissanite. (Although there is an organization called GRA in China that appraises moissanite, its details are not clear.)The selling brand may set the 4Cs to determine the price, or the manufacturer may decide the 4Cs independently.However, even if there is no appraisal, it is certain that the price will fluctuate depending on the rank of 4C.So, just like diamonds, the higher the quality, the more expensive they are.
2. Check the jewelry management system
You can tell whether the moissanite you are selling is genuine by checking it with a tester before shipping it to the store. Depending on the brand, the purchasing/manufacturing management system may not be consistent, and products may be mixed with other gemstones or jewelry.Before purchasing, check the website of the store or brand to make sure it has been thoroughly checked by testers.
