The reason why more people than ever are choosing Moissanite

While diamonds are still the most commonly used engagement ring gemstone, one alternative is becoming more popular year after year for all the right reasons.

Moissanite is a type of gemstone that originated from the stars. It was discovered in 1893 by French scientist Henri Moissan after finding particles of its particles in a crater. Initially, he and his team thought the crystals were diamonds. Instead, they discovered silicon carbide, which was named shortly after as Moissanite

Responsible Sourcing

Natural moissanite is incredibly rare, so most moissanites on the market today are lab created. Because they are grown in controlled environments using advanced technology, moissanites require no new mining to produce.

Fiery Brilliance

Moissanites are known for their brilliance, which is measured by their refractive index. Unlike diamonds, they have a unique surface that dazzles in the light. They are also known for their rainbow-colored flashes due to the varying faceting patterns.

Uncompromised Durability

The hardness of a stone is measured using the Mohs scale. It is used to evaluate a gemstone’s ability to resist scratching and other damage. On this scale, Moissanite is one of the hardest minerals on Earth, making a moissanite jewelry piece suitable for everyday wear that will hold up marvelously over time. Your moissanite gemstone will never get cloudy or change color and requires occasional cleaning to maintain a pristine and sparkling appearance.

Attractive Price

With a low price, Moissanite is an attractive alternative to expensive diamonds for many couples. They can create the ideal engagement ring without veering away from their budget.
