Your post is missing some very crucial details, without which, you will struggle to find a buyer.

Namely, am I correct in assuming you meant the size of the gemstone is 1.25ct?

What karat weight of gold has this stone been set into? 9k/14k/18k?

Do you have any certificates that indicate that this is genuine moissanite or lab created? This HUGELY impacts the value.
If this is lab created, you will have a problem getting much more than the gold value for it.

Genuine Moissanite is a naturally occuring gemstone that is derived mainly of silicon carbide. It is very rare to find.
The majority of Moissanite seen on the market is synthetic, and produced in laboratories.
It is used in engagement rings as a much cheaper alternative to diamonds.
Moissanite generally has more brilliance to it than the average diamond, as it has higher optical properties. For someone who would like a gemstone that looks like a diamond, yet cannot afford one, Moissanite is an option to go for.

It has similar thermal conductivity to diamond, making them useful as a much cheaper replacement to diamonds in industry.

To the untrained eye, these appear to be diamonds. There are a few ways to tell them apart though. Firstly, the hardness of the mineral.

Moissanite is a very hard substance, measuring 9.5 on the MOHS Scale - Diamonds are 10 on the MOHS Scale; this is the hardest substance known to man.
You can purchase diamond testers, which check the hardness of a gemstone to help distinguish whether a suspect stone is genuine or not.

Moissanite is reactive to high heat, and will start to turn orange after being heated to around 150 degress Fahrenheit. This is another way to distinguish one apart from something else entirely.

Anyway, the chances of this being a genuine moissanite, instead of one created in a lab, are extremely slim unless you can provide some papers.

Thanks,

Zepher
