Moissanite Gemstones: A Sustainable and Stunning Alternative to Diamonds!

When it comes to jewellery, diamonds have long been regarded as the ultimate token of luxury and everlasting love. However, recently I’ve noticed a trend of people choosing alternatives that are just as beautiful but more sustainable and affordable…and my favourite of these has to be moissanite!

Move over diamonds.... there's a new gemstone in town!

What is Moissanite?

Moissanite is a naturally occurring mineral that was first discovered in 1893 by French chemist Henri Moissan in a meteorite crater in Arizona. However, it is extremely rare in nature, so moissanite that is used in jewellery now is almost always lab-created.

Moissanite vs Diamond:
What's the Difference?

Moissanite has a similar look to diamond but with some unique characteristics that set it apart. For one, moissanite has a higher refractive index than diamond, which means it has more sparkle and fire. It also has a higher dispersion, which means it reflects light more colourfully!

In terms of hardness, moissanite is almost as hard as diamond, ranking at 9.25 on the Mohs scale (diamond is 10). This makes moissanite durable and resistant to scratching and chipping. Plus, it's less likely to crack or break under pressure, making it an excellent choice for everyday wear and perfect for a forever ring!

Sustainability Benefits of Moissanite

One of the biggest advantages of moissanite over diamond is its sustainability and environmental benefits. Moissanite is created in a lab, so compared to mined diamonds, it has a much smaller carbon footprint.
