Is Moissanite Good for An Engagement Ring?

If you are wondering if moissanite is the right choice for an engagement ring in Los Angeles, CA, then you can be sure that a moissanite ring is definitely the perfect option.
Here is why so many people are going for moissanite over diamonds for an engagement ring in 2022.

  • What is moissanite?

    Moissanite is a natural mineral called silicon carbide, found in 1893 in a meteor crater in Arizona by Dr. Henry Moissan.
    Several years later, in a research laboratory, scientists have created the innovative method of making silicon carbide crystals with such purity that they can compete any earthly gemstone.

    It's also considerably cheaper than diamonds of identical shapes and sizes, costing roughly 10% of the price. This is why moissanite is considered the best diamond alternative.

  • How does a diamond differ from a moissanite?

    The most visible difference between diamonds and moissanite is how they sparkle. Moissanite has a higher refractive index than diamond. Moissanite has a refractive index of 2.65 compared to 2.42 for diamonds. This means it will bring you more brilliance than a diamond.

    You will find below a characteristic comparison table between diamonds and moissanite.

     

    Characteristics Diamond Moissanite
    Brilliance Refraction Index (RI) 2.42 2.65-2.69
    Fire Dispersion 0.044 0.104
    Hardness Mohs Scales 10 9.5
    Toughness Good to Excellent Excellent
  • Are moissanite rings cheap looking?

    Moissanite rings are not tacky looking. Moissanite ranks 9.50 on the Mohs Hardness Scale (when diamond ranks 10), which means a moissanite ring is extremely durable and ideal for daily wear.

  • Does moissanite lose its sparkle?

    Moissanite will not lose its glitter with time. It is as strong as a diamond. Therefore it is impossible for a moissanite ring to lose or fade the color with time.

  • Do moissanite rings last for ever?

    Moissanite is a wonderful gemstone that is virtually as hard as a diamond. Moissanite, like diamonds, is eternal.

  • Are moissanite rings easily chipped?

    The MOH scale has a range from 0 to 10, with 10 being the hardest mineral. Moissanite has a hardness of 9.5, while diamonds have a hardness of 10. This means that moissanite is very durable and extremely resistant to scratching and abrasion.

7 Majors Pros and Cons About Moissanite Ring

Pros

  • Moissanite will provide you with a spectacular sparkle. Moissanite has an even higher refractive index than diamond (2.65 vs 2.42 for diamonds). This means it will give you more shine than diamonds.
  • Moissanite Is Comparable to Diamonds in Hardness. Moissanite is the hardest stone after diamonds (9.5 vs 10 for diamonds). This indicates moissanite is suitable for daily wear, does not break or scratch easily, and will maintain his sparkle.
  • Moissanite is a fraction of the price of diamonds at comparable color, cut, and clarity. Because it is so similar to diamonds, moissanite is the perfect diamond alternative without the diamond price tag.
  • Moissanite is an ethical choice compared to most diamonds. One of the most common reasons for consumers to choose moissanite over diamonds nowadays is to help in the fight against child labor and unethical diamond mining, as described by the International Labour Organization here.

Cons

  • Moissanite does not offer the same heirloom quality. When you own diamond jewelry, you are passing down something valuable as a heritage.
  • People may make comments thinking your moissanite ring is diamond Since Moissanite and Diamond show no distinction to the naked eye that people could make comments about the price and the size of your moissanite ring and you may feel uncomfortable about it.
  • Some old-fashion jewelers who may not feel comfortable working on your moissanite ring If at some point you need to have your moissanite ring adjusted or cleaned, you may bump into an old-school jeweler that would turn you down because your piece is not a diamond. This is happening less and less though, since nowadays more and more jewelers are use to work with moissanite.

  4. Decide on the metal type.

    The two major types of metals used for an engagement ring are platinum and gold.
    The difference in price between a platinum and a gold moissanite ring is primarily attribuable to the metal's purity level.
    The platinum moissanite ring is commonly $500 to $800 more expensive than a gold moissanite ring since there is more pure platinum in it. Also, it is 66% heavier than 14k gold.

      • Platinum

    Platinum has a naturally white metal with a beautiful brilliance that emphasizes the brilliance and shine of diamonds or diamond alternatives.

      • Gold

    24 Karat gold is 100 % pure gold. It is, however, too soft to be used in most jewelry. As a result, gold is mixed with other alloys to make it more durable and secure for gemstone settings, such as 18 karat gold (75 % pure gold) and 14 karat gold, which is the most commonly used in fine jewelry (58.3 % pure gold).

  5. Pick the color of the metal band.

    The colors for an engagement ring in gold are white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold. The most popular choice for an engagement ring is the white gold.

  6. Find out the finger size needed.
