Ready to hear what all the hype with moissanite is about? In this weeks blog, I am going to point out some of the key similarities and differences between moissanite and diamonds and highlight the pros and cons to help you make the best decision for you when ordering jewelry!
First, we should discuss - What is Moissanite?
Moissanite is a rare, naturally occurring mineral - it’s so rare that it has to be created in a lab since it cannot be found in large enough pieces around the world. Moissanite has several similarities to diamonds, which is why it has become a wonderful alternative to diamond jewelry.
Speaking of similarities, there are many significant similarities and differences to take note of. The main similarity between moissanite and diamonds is their appearance. Both have a beautiful shine and sparkle to them. In fact, the smaller the cut of moissanite, the harder it is to tell it apart from a diamond.
One might wonder about the durability of moissanite in comparison to a diamond - but good news, moissanite is just slightly lower on the Mohs Scale. This means it would be very hard to damage a moissanite stone!
Now going into the differences. The main difference between moissanite and diamonds is price - a key reason as to why it has grown so popular. It may look similar to a diamond, but it does not have the price tag of one, thankfully. To give you a better idea, a diamond ring can range from $1800 to $12,000 (or more). The moissanite jewelry that we have ranges from $189 to $589.
A few of our current faves are the Marylin Sterling Silver Moissanite Bridal Set, Modern .925 Sterling Silver Moissanite Rings, and the Posh Moissanite Duo!
BTW - We have several moissanite styles on sale.
When debating whether or not to splurge on diamonds, or seeing if moissanite is the right fit for you, there are a few pros and cons that could assist with your decision making.
