As a lab-produced stone, no mining is needed to give you a perfectly brilliant moissanite. Unlike natural diamonds, you can rest assured that the production of your moissanite stone had minimal impact on the environment and did not require the use of unethical labor practices.
MOISSANITE IS DURABLE
The hardness of a gemstone is measured using the Mohs scale, where 1 is the softest and 10 is the hardest. Diamonds are the most durable, with a score of 10. Moissanites are just behind that with a mark of 9.25, making it the second hardest and most durable gem.
MOISSANITE IS AFFORDABLE
Compared to diamonds, the cost of moissanite is considerably less. All things being equal, a moissanite retail's price is about 1/10th the cost of a diamond. So, moissanite can be an affordable diamond alternative.
MOISSANITE IS SPARKLY
Moissanites exhibit a different kind of incomparable brilliance than diamonds do, as moissanites have a higher refractive index than diamonds. This means when exposed to sunlight, a moissanite stone will sparkle brightly and may exhibit a rainbow effect.
MOISSANITE IS COLORLESS
Just like diamonds, moissanite is labeled a colorless gemstone, but may still project a gray or yellow hue in certain lighting conditions. However, this difference is extremely subtle and will only be noticeable to a trained eye.
