Moissanite comes from the stars. Yes, you read that right. Moissanite was originally discovered in fragments of meteorite so small that cutting a gemstone from them was pretty much impossible. However after many years of work this naturally occurring mineral was successfully grown in a lab!
Because moissanite is lab-grown there is no harmful mining of the earth involved in creating these brilliant gems. Moissanite is not involved in any conflict trade and is extremely sustainable.
Believe it or not, moissanite has many traits that compete with the traditional beauty of diamonds. Gemologists are able to create brilliant, colourless gems that rival diamonds in clarity and size. In fact moissanite outshines diamonds in their brilliance. Moissanite comes second only to diamonds in hardness meaning it surpasses other popular gemstones like ruby, sapphire and emeralds, also meaning its a durable stone that is able to withstand the demands of daily wear. Aka, your forever and ever ring.
Moissanite is for everyone. From the environmentally friendly consumer to the financially conscious consumer, there is a moissanite ring waiting for you.
Moissanite is often measured in millimetres rather than carats, so here is a comparison chart to help you out when searching for or designing the perfect ring for you.
