How to Choose the Best Moissanite Ring?

January 14, 2022

Planning to buy a moissanite ring for your partner, but couldn’t differentiate between the right and wrong option? 

Don’t worry, we have got you covered. Many people still wonder why moissanite is a better option than diamond and other gemstones. But the fact is, moissanite rings have become a preferred choice of couples for the past few years- and the reason is, their elegance, beauty, sophistication, sustainability, and of course affordability.

However, there are a few things to consider before choosing the moissanite ring for your partner. Read onto this detailed guide and learn what makes moissanite rings the best option for your partner.

Choosing Moissanite Engagement Rings:

 If you are wondering how to choose a perfect moissanite ring that lasts for years and sparkles like a real diamond, then here we have mentioned a few tips for you.

  • Moissanite Cut:

Moissanite gemstone is usually cut into several popular gemstone shapes that resemble diamonds such as pear-shaped diamond, round brilliant, cushion cut, princess, emerald as well as marquise cuts. 

When moissanite is faceted, the stones shine and look fiery, but when they appear into step cuts, the stone looks elegant, showing some depth as well as calm brilliance.

  • Color of the Gemstone:

Moissanite is typically colorless or sometimes available in a transparent shape which is probably a preferred choice for engagement rings because it features a very classic look. 

However, the technology for manufacturing moissanite has been improved as compared to past years, the stone is available in different amazing colors such as pink, gray, blue, and others.

  • Clarity of Moissanite:

Moissanite is a lab-created stone that always looks elegant and sophisticated in appearance and that’s the reason people love to choose it for engagement rings. 

You won’t find any usual inclusions in moissanite that generally gather in other gemstones, due to thousands of years of formation. Well, you may see some tiny flaws in the gemstone, but these are also not seen with the naked eye.

  • Moissanite Carat Weight:

Unlike traditional diamonds that we usually measure in carats, moissanite can be measured in millimeters. This gemstone is not as dense as diamonds, so always remember that a moissanite gemstone will weigh 10% less than the equivalent size of a diamond. 

Moissanite is also available in various shapes and sizes, however, it’s better to choose larger moissanite stones because they exhibit very attractive flashes of color.

Why is Moissanite a Better Option than Other Gemstones?

Now that you understand the tips to choose moissanite gemstones, it’s time to learn why it’s better than other gemstones.

  • Moissanite is very sustainable:

Regardless of following a lot of care and considerations, there are great environmental and ethical costs involved in mining diamond gemstones from the earth. 

In fact, in the past few years, the diamond industry has come under fire due to unlimited problems such as funding conflicts, unfair treatment with workers, dangerous operational conditions, and much more. On the other hand, moissanite gemstones are created in extremely fair, ethical, safe, and sustainable conditions. 

  • Moissanite is brilliant and affordable:

Unlike other gemstones, moissanite is the most affordable, brilliant, and durable gemstone that is indistinguishable from the real diamond. It comes at a fraction of the cost, which makes it an ideal choice for every couple. If you want a gemstone-like diamond, then this is the perfect option for you in which you don’t even need to cross your budget.

  • Moissanite is durable:

Let’s talk about the durability of moissanite gemstones. When compared with diamonds that rank at 10 on the Mohs scale and sapphires that rank at 9, moissanite is a little less and ranked at 9.25, which makes them the second hardest stone in the jewelry category, outranked by diamonds. 

The best part is these types of gemstones can be worn by everyone and have the least chances to get any scratches and damage.

  • Moissanite is more flashy than diamonds:

As explained above, Moissanite is a more brilliant choice than diamonds which have a very higher Refractive Index (RI) as compared to other gemstones. 

This quality makes them a highly brilliant and awesome choice. Another incredible factor to note is, moissanite stones have a colorful flash and are more sparkling in nature. It looks prominent on larger stones. So, this type of ‘rainbow effect’ is appreciated by many people today. However, if you don’t want that for your engagement ring, then you can also choose a less sparkly and flashy stone.

  • Moissanite is unique:

Have you ever wondered why moissanite is a lab-created stone? 

This is because the natural moissanite stone is extremely rare in nature. The natural stone comes to earth on a meteorite millions of years ago which exists in very few places on the earth. That’s the reason, moissanite is also called a ‘space diamond’ as well as a ‘stardust’. 

For people who love nature or study science, this gemstone provides an added protection of symbolism.
