Why Vai Ra doesn't do GRA Moissanites

Unveiling the Excellence: Why We Don't Offer GRA Moissanites

At Vai Ra, we often encounter a common question from our valued customers: "Do you sell GRA moissanites?" The unequivocal answer is a resounding "NO." In this blog, we delve into the reasons behind this decision, shedding light on our commitment to delivering exceptional quality and transparency in our moissanite offerings.

Craftsmanship and Certification:
Our journey begins with the meticulous craftsmanship of our moissanites. Each piece is intricately cut by skilled diamond artisans in Surat, ensuring precision and excellence. Following the cutting process, our moissanites undergo rigorous grading at the ISO-accredited GBS lab, with further certification by SGL for jewelry, guaranteeing both quality and setting durability.

Attention to Detail:
What sets us apart is our dedication to attention to detail. We refrain from mass production, opting to cut stones only when an order is placed. This approach allows us to focus on each order individually, maintaining the highest standards in every moissanite we produce.

Why No GRA Moissanites?
1. **Sourcing and Certification:** Unlike some sellers, we do not offer GRA moissanites, as GRA is not an exclusive moissanite-certifying lab. Certificates accompanying GRA moissanites often originate from a China-based company, raising concerns about authenticity and credibility.

2. **Quality Validation:** One of our core reasons for not offering GRA moissanites lies in the lack of external validation of their quality processes. We prioritize transparency and accountability, and without an independent assessment, relying solely on GRA's claims doesn't align with our commitment to excellence.

3. **Color and Clarity Issues:** GRA moissanites, particularly those claiming a D color grade, often fail the color and clarity tests at our accredited labs. Closer inspection sometimes reveals hidden flaws such as breakage or chipping, posing a risk to the durability and longevity of the gemstone.

4. **Unique Manufacturing Process:** GRA's distinct thermal manufacturing process imparts a whitish tone to their moissanites. This characteristic has left some clients dissatisfied, reporting a lack of fire and brilliance compared to our moissanites.

At Vai Ra, we believe in offering not just moissanites but a commitment to quality, transparency, and customer satisfaction. Our decision not to offer GRA moissanites is rooted in our dedication to providing genuine, high-quality gemstones that stand the test of time. When choosing a moissanite, it's crucial to consider authenticity and quality, and we invite our customers to experience the unparalleled excellence that defines our brand.
