Where can I buy loose moissanite stones in the San Francisco Bay Area?

I am marrying my fiancée in Perú (where she lives) and we have decided to have our rings made down there, but to get the stone up here. So I could find one online, but I would prefer to see it before I buy it. I live in the SF Bay Area and I haven't had much luck looking online for places that sell loose moissanite stones. I love my fiancée and I want everything about our wedding and marriage to be all that she ever dreamed, but I really don't have very much money. So that complicates things. I would appreciate any recommendations.

The manufacturer of moissanite has a monopoly on the process, so your best bet will be to go to an independent jeweler who can order stones in for you to check out in person.

I ended up finding a shop that sells loose Moissanite much closer to my home than I ever anticipated. I found it on http://yellowpages.superpages.com
