Learn about Moissanite and Moissanite engagemet rings.
What is Moissanite?
Contrary to popular belief, moissanite is not a synthetic diamond. It is in fact a gemstone which can occur naturally in the earth. However, the moissanite stones used in most modern engagement rings are lab created under special conditions to ensure maximum brilliance and clarity. Similar to diamonds, moissanites have different colour grades ranging from colourless to near colourless which results in a white appearance. Moissanites are also very hard and score a 9.25 on the Mohs scale of hardness. To put this in perspective, diamonds score a perfect 10, with sapphires and rubies not far behind as well. This means that these stones are incredibly durable and long lasting making them an excellent choice for engagement rings.
One noticeable visible difference between moissanites and diamonds is that moissanite stones are actually more brilliant and will show a larger range of brilliant colours especially in the sunlight. People will often notice the bright flashes of blue and green when they look at a moissanite under natural light.
One of the main benefits of choosing a moissanite is that they are signifigantely less expensive than diamonds. This means that your budget may allow you to get a considerably larger moissanite than it would a diamond. For example a two or three carat diamond can cost within the tens of thousands, a moissanite of the same size can be much less.
