Looking for a stone that shines as bright as a diamond? Be dazzled by our sparkling selection of moissanite rings.
Picking out the perfect engagement ring can be a daunting task. And while earth-mined diamonds have historically been a classic choice, they’re no longer an option for couples in search of sustainably sourced, conflict-free gemstones. You’re already likely to be aware of the benefits of Lab-Grown Diamonds, but have you heard about the magic of Moissanite?
Introducing the world’s most scintillating stone: Moissanite. Its sparkle was first seen in 1893 by French scientist Henri Moissan, who discovered this precious gem in a crater created by a meteorite in Arizona. At first glance, he thought he had stumbled across diamonds but later determined that the crystals were composed of silicon carbide.
Diamond vs. Moissanite
Following on from this unexpected discovery, Moissanite Lab-Grown Gemstones have taken the jewelry industry by storm (given that the natural version is incredibly rare). And despite diamonds being renowned for their brilliance, Moissanite has an even greater refractive index and so it sparkles just a little more than its iconic competitor. But to keep the comparison fair, Lab Grown Diamonds are pure carbon and always our first recommendation here at MiaDonna!
A breathtaking shine coupled with a very competitive price point is enough to convince buyers to opt for Moissanite to simulate the look of a diamond when maximizing their engagement ring budget. But just before you thought it couldn’t get better than that, Moissanite ranks an impressive 9.25 on Moh’s Scale of Hardness. This means that it is a close runner-up to diamonds (which have a hardness of 10) and helps ensure an everlasting wear to coincide with a lifelong marriage.
So, if you love the planet just as much as your partner, be sure to consider this eco-friendly gemstone that comes at a highly competitive price point. We’ve rounded up seven of our best-selling Moissanite engagement rings to make the process easier:
