What is Moissanite?
If you haven't heard of Moissanite (aka gem quality silicon carbide), its appearance is often mistaken for a diamond. However, it is no diamond simulant. It surpasses a diamond in both fire and brilliance. Its superior hardness makes it ideal for heirloom quality jewelry as it is extremely resistant to scratching, chipping and breaking. Our Moissanites are cut and polished better than the majority of diamonds commonly sold in engagement rings. In addition, for the socially conscious, Moissanite is ethically sourced and environmentally friendly.
Moissanite was first discovered in minute quantities from particles carried to earth by a meteorite 50,000 years ago. It is now available as faceted gemstones in a large array of shapes and sizes.
Unlike other diamond alternatives that can cloud and dull with time, Moissanite is just as atomically stable as a diamond and so it's impossible for it change color or lose its optical properties with time. In fact, given that Moissanite is more heat resistant than diamond, it can be argued it's even more atomically stable. Therefore, you can rest assured your Moissanite jewelry will sparkle for a lifetime and beyond.
