Moissanite: The gemstone that looks great on your engagement ring

Are you about to propose but haven't chosen the right engagement ring yet? Then this article is for you, because after reading it, you might just make up your mind! We'll tell you what the true beauty of moissanite is and why you should get down on one knee with a moissanite engagement ring. Are you curious about what moissanite has to offer? Let's take a look together!

If you want your engagement to be a special and perfect moment, you should think about the ring as well as the place or situation. After all, it is an element that symbolises the union of two lives. So, if your bride-to-be doesn't have her dream ring and you're at a loss for ideas, give a moissanite engagement ring a try. This exceptional gemstone will make sure you hear „Yes, I will.“.

Moissanite has recently become a very popular engagement ring. And no wonder. At first glance, it captivates with its striking brilliance, but it has so much more to offer. Its attractive price and the fact that it does not pollute the environment also add to its appeal. But that's not all…

Why moissanite?

Dazzling optical clarity and sparkle

Moissanite is a gemstone of breathtaking beauty, largely due to its pristine optical clarity and dazzling sparkle, which is 18% greater than that of a diamond. When the sun shines on a moissanite, you'll see something magical - the light hitting the gemstone is bent and refracted into two rays - then you'll see its iridescent reflections. Believe me, you will not want to take your eyes off it.

Hardness and durability come in handy

In terms of hardness, moissanite beats most other gemstones. At 9.25, it ranks just behind diamonds on the Mohs scale. This also makes it the perfect ring for everyday wear, as it is resistant to scratches, cracks or other damage.

It also boasts environmentally friendly origins

Natural moissanite is found in very small quantities on earth, but that doesn't mean it's any less beautiful. On the contrary. The gemstone can be created in a laboratory. Compared to conventional mining, laboratory production is a greener option that does not pollute the environment. Moissanites therefore proudly stand for sustainability.

How is moissanite formed and what is its history?

It was in 1893 that Henri Moissan, a French chemist, discovered microscopic gemstone fragments in samples from a meteorite impact crater in Arizona. He initially identified them as diamonds, but later chemical tests revealed that they were moissanite. Ironically, it had been produced in a laboratory two years earlier.

Synthetic moissanite is made in laboratories using a variety of methods. Basically, it starts with a mixture of carbon and silicon, and during the production process the conditions necessary for its natural formation are duplicated, especially the combination of high pressure and temperature.

Moissanite versus diamond

Price and availability

Do you love diamonds but are put off by their prohibitive price? If so, a moissanite ring could be the perfect alternative to a diamond ring. Because moissanites are lab created, they are not in short supply and therefore do not have the high purchase price of natural diamonds.

Visual similarity

Moissanite has been compared to a diamond for a reason: they both have a beautiful sparkle and exceptional elegance. In fact, they are so similar that the untrained eye cannot tell the difference at first or second glance. This makes moissanite engagement rings a popular alternative to diamond rings.

Uniqueness or exclusivity

If traditional values or uniqueness are important to you, you will probably prefer a diamond whose value is on the rise. In short, natural diamonds are the most exclusive gemstones.

If you don't care so much about the origin of the gemstone in your engagement ring and prefer greener options, a moissanite ring is the right choice for your big day. Although it loses its title of exclusivity by being manufactured in laboratories, it has several qualities that will make women proud to wear moissanite jewellery.

Inspiration for designing moissanite engagement rings

Moissanite jewellery is not only great for proposing, but if you find a woman's taste, she can wear it every day. Trust me, she won't want to take it off.

At first glance, choosing the right piece may seem like a challenge. Moissanite's properties allow it to be cut into a wide variety of shapes. Moissanite engagement rings come in many different styles, which is a good thing because there is something for every woman.

So try to think about what your bride-to-be likes. If she's into simplicity, go for a minimalist ring. Does she like to mix and match original pieces? An atypical moissanite ring will be just the thing. If she loves elegance, surprise her with a luxury engagement ring with hexagonal moissanite. It goes with all shades of gold, modern or vintage, and you can also play with its shapes, from round to kite shape.
