What is Moissanite?
If you are not yet familiar with Moissanite, it is a gem-quality silicon carbide that is frequently mistaken for a diamond due to its similar appearance. However, it is important to note that Moissanite is not a diamond simulant, but rather a superior alternative that boasts exceptional fire and brilliance. Its exceptional hardness also makes it an excellent choice for creating heirloom-quality jewelry, as it is highly resistant to scratches, chips, and breakage. Furthermore, our Moissanites are expertly cut and polished to a higher standard than the majority of diamonds commonly found in engagement rings.
Notably, Moissanite is ethically sourced and environmentally friendly, making it a socially conscious choice for those who prioritize sustainability. Its origin can be traced back to the discovery of minute quantities of the mineral in particles carried to earth by a meteorite 50,000 years ago. Today, it is available as faceted gemstones in a wide range of shapes and sizes.
One of the key advantages of Moissanite is its exceptional stability over time. Unlike some other diamond alternatives that can become clouded or dull with age, Moissanite is just as atomically stable as a diamond, meaning that it will not change color or lose its optical properties over time. In fact, given that Moissanite is more heat-resistant than diamond, one could argue that it is even more atomically stable. Ultimately, Moissanite is the ideal choice for those seeking assurance that their jewelry will continue to sparkle for a lifetime and beyond.
