Moissanite- a Diamond Alternative
The incredible Moissanite …
Brilliant, dazzling, beautiful. Moissanite is a fine gem at an affordable price, making it the ideal diamond alternative. Read below to learn more about this incredible jewel:
In the 1990s, a company named Charles and Colvard discovered a process to grow brilliant Moissanite; a gem that before had only been found in tiny crystals on meteorites. They knew that when grown in the laboratory, the crystals could be faceted and have incredible potential for fine jewelry. After mastering a complex chemical process, they were able to bring this incredible jewel to market. We recognized that this gem is the best diamond alternative on the market, and we are proud to have been selling this gem to happy customers for over ten years. Whether Moissanite earrings, Moissanite rings, or Moissanite pendants, this gem provides brilliance, durability, versatility and affordability for our clientele.
Moissanite is easiest to describe when compared to a diamond, though the stone is merit worthy on its own. Moissanite has a higher refractive index, which results in superior sparkle and shine. Moissanite is almost as hard as a diamond, and tougher than every other diamond alternative and simulant, meaning it won’t scuff like cubic zirconia. In color, Moissanite is near colorless on the diamond grading scale (G-J) and the clarity is SI or better. However, not all Moissanite is created equal. We carry Charles and Colvard Certified Moissanite that adheres to the highest standards, while some online retailers and other chain stores carry low-grade material, gems that are either off color or cut poorly, that do not do this incredible gem justice.
Why choose Moissanite?
There any many reasons to choose Moissanite for an engagement ring or other piece of jewelry. The primary factor in choosing Moissanite is affordability. While most women dream of owning a fine diamond, a beatiful diamond can be cost prohibitive, and a moissanite engagement ring comes pretty close to the real thing. Moissanite is approximately 20% of the price of a comparable diamond, yet delivers a similar look. While no stone can replace the alure and beauty a truly fine diamond, Moissanite outshines all other diamond alternatives at a much lower price. No matter why you choose Moissanite, it is a beautiful gem that is sure to please, and looks fantastic set in jewelry.
