Is Moissanite Great for An Engagement Ring?

If you are wondering if moissanite is the right choice for an engagement ring in Minneapolis, MN, then you can be assured that a moissanite ring is definitely the perfect option.
Here is why so many people prefer moissanite over diamonds for an engagement ring in 2022.

  • What is moissanite?

    Moissanite is a natural mineral called silicon carbide, discovered in 1893 in a meteor crater in Arizona by Dr. Henry Moissan.
    Several years later, in a research laboratory, scientists have created the novel process to create silicon carbide crystals that are so pure that they can match any natural gemstone.

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

  • What is the difference between a diamond and a moissanite?

    The main visible difference between diamonds and moissanite is how they shine. Moissanite has a greater refractive index than diamond. Moissanite has a refractive index of 2.65 versus 2.42 for diamonds. This means it will give you more brightness 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 tacky?

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

  • Does moissanite lose its glitter?

    Moissanite will not lose its glitter as time passes. It is as stable as a diamond. As a consequence it is impossible for a moissanite ring to fade or fade the color over time.

  • Do moissanite rings last forever?

    Moissanite is a gorgeous gemstone that is virtually as hard as a diamond. Moissanite, just like diamonds, will last for ever.

  • 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 extremely durable and 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 sparkle 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

  4. Decide on the metal type.

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

      • 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.
