Benefits of Moissanite
Moissanite vs. Diamond
Moissanite Grade Guarantee & Certificate
Moissanite is a gemstone born from the stars. It was first discovered in1893 by a French scientist named Henri Moissan, who later won theNobel Prize in Chemistry.
Natural moissanite is incredibly rare, so moissanite available today islab created.
With fire,brilliance, and luster far greater than any diamond's,itsparkles like no other gemstone on the planet. Made of carbon andsilicon, it is also one of the hardest known elements on Earth,makingit extremely resistant to scratching, chipping, and breaking.
Moissanite's durability and unmatched beauty make it a great choiceas the center stone of an engagement ring or jewelry gift.
Like diamonds, moissanite stones will not get cloudy over time.
Yes! Moissanite’s superior hardness makes it an ideal ring to wear every day! At a 9.25 hardness on the Mohs scale, it stands up to wear and tear extremely well, making it a great engagement ring choice. Also, moissanite’s mineral makeup means that it resists oil and dirt better than a diamond.
Moissanite resists chipping and breaking better than diamonds. Unlike diamonds, moissanite does not break in its crystal direction, as its cleavage in “indistinct”. This means that while a moissanite can still be chipped, it is less prone to the large breaks that diamonds experience.
Yes, but only by the few things harder than it, like diamonds and certain abrasive cleaners. However, that’s about all that can scratch a moissanite! Most other gems and surfaces, such as sapphire or granite, are softer than moissanite and cannot cause scratches. Because moissanite is a 9.25 on the hardness scale, and diamonds are a 10, diamonds can scratch moissanites.
No! Moissanite stays super sparkly for its whole life. Because of its superior hardness and great refractive index, moissanite stands the test of time. Unlike a CZ (a less beautiful diamond simulant), you never have to worry about a moissanite becoming dull, losing its brilliance, or getting foggy. It will be beautiful and bright forever.
