MOISSANITE ENGAGEMENT RINGS Faq
Moissanite rings offer incredible sparkle at an affordable price. This gemstone has many advantages, including brilliance and durability. Moissanite is a great option if you are looking for an exceptional engagement ring that is far less expensive than a diamond ring. These shimmering lab-grown gemstones come in the same variety of cuts and carats as a natural diamond and with their sustainability credentials, pocket-friendly price points and irresistible lustre, they are certainly worth considering.
A moissanite ring looks and feels like the real deal and most people won't realise you're not wearing a diamond. But there are some big differences. A diamond is mined from the earth and made of a solid form of pure carbon. Moissanite is a silicon carbide mineral and one of the rarest crystals on earth. Discovered in a fallen meteor, it is even rarer than a diamond. Since moissanite is so scarce to find, it's now created in a laboratory using cutting-edge heat and pressure technology that mimics the way the gemstone occurs naturally. Another difference is colour. A natural diamond has single refraction which reflects bright, white and clear light. Moissanite has double refraction, and although virtually colourless, its slight hints of yellow and green give it an amazing rainbow-like brilliance. Moissanite is almost indistinguishable from diamond as far as the naked eye is concerned, making it an extremely appealing option for a stunning engagement ring.
Yes, you can shower and wash your hands whilst wearing your Moissanite ring. Water is not harmful to Moissanite and won't spoil it.
Durable, tough and resistant to scratches, moissanite is ideal for daily wear. A stone's hardness is measured on the Mohs scale - a diamond has a perfect rating of 10 whilst moissanite comes in at a very strong 9.25.
Discovered by French scientist Henri Moissan in 1893, moissanite's origins come from outer space. Initially, Moissan thought he was looking at a diamond when he found the first sample of sparkling silicon carbide in a fallen meteor crater. Since it is so rare to find these earth-bound crystals, the moissanite gems you see today are grown in laboratories. State-of-the-art technology is used to replicate the natural phenomenon of moissanite, offering you a far less expensive but equally beautiful alternative to diamonds.
A moissanite ring will last you a lifetime. Set in high-quality precious metals, moissanite is a strong and durable stone that will never become cloudy or discoloured. With high hardness and brilliance that never fades, it can take everyday knocks of life without being damaged.
