I just recently made a princess cut moissanite engagement ring that was quite simple yet elegant. This ring consisted of lab diamond accent stones as well as a moissanite center stone that was a 1 carat princess cut stone.
We will now dive into some of the benefits of opting for a moissanite ring and jewelry. We will cover why this particular stone has become a huge favorite among couples that are about to get engaged and married.
Advantages Of Moissanite
When it comes to diamond alternatives, moissanite is one of the main favorites for engagement rings. There are lots of reasons why moissanite is so loved and we will now look at some of the benefits of getting moissanite engagement rings.
- Lab grown
Moissanite is a lab grown gemstone which means that it isn’t actually mined. This makes it completely conflict free and very green/eco-friendly.
When you buy moissanite rings, the gemstone that you get will be significantly cheaper than buying a diamond ring. You don’t need to make yourself broke to buy a beautiful ring. Also, moissanite is absolutely beautiful and breathtaking to behold.
- Similar hardness of a diamond
The hardest gemstones are diamonds since they have a perfect score of 10/10 in mineral hardness. However, moissanite also rates extremely well when it comes to hardness. It has a hardness rating of 9.25/10.
This is important because it shows the strength of the stone and how well it will hold up over time.
- Colorless moissanite
In the recent past, moissanite had a yellow tint. However, they have been worked on quite a lot and they are now almost colorless. A colorless moissanite stone was actually manufactured by Charles and Colvard and this is called the “Forever One” moissanite stone.
- Lots of different sizes and shapes
Moissanite is made in lots of various sizes and shapes. So, it all boils down to what you personally prefer and you can easily find an appropriate colorless moissanite that will fit your desires just perfectly.
