What is a Moissanite?

What is a Moissanite?

Moissanite is a gemstone born from the stars. In 1893, French scientist Henri Moissan found particles of the gem in a crater created by a meteorite that fell to Earth. Henri and other scientists initially thought that those particles were diamonds, but later tests determined that the crystals were composed of silicon carbide, a strong covalent bonding that holds the crystalline structure together, similar to diamonds. This is why moissanite is very hard and able to withstand high pressure and high temperatures.

Today, moissanite is a sought-after gem for its close resemblance to diamonds and its impressive fire. Even though these stones have a diamond-like appearance, Moissanites are known for their intense and impressive fiery brilliance, durability, attractive price, and for being conflict-free gems, making them an increasingly popular choice for engagement rings for those who prefer ethical and sustainable choices. It is important to note that Moissanites are stones that just happen to look like diamonds but possess features that make them beautiful in their own right. In other words, Moissanite is a diamond look-alike, not a diamond simulant.

What Are The Key Benefits

Responsible Sourcing

In its natural form, Moissanite remains very rare, as it only has been discovered in a few rocks from upper mantle rock and meteorites. This connection to outer space is why this stone is also called the "space diamond". Moissanite requires no mining to be produced, making them the best choice for our customers since they can be sourced in a responsible, ethical, and sustainable manner.

Fiery Brilliance

The sparkle of a stone is measured by its brilliance, which is the stone’s refractive index. Moissanites exhibit a heightened and intense brilliance, the striking sparkle of Moissanites emits fiery flashes that dazzle in the light. The refractive index of a Diamond is 2.42 while moissanite is 2.69 which means that these stones have more brilliance than a diamond.


Moissanites are one of the hardest gemstones on earth, a gemstone’s hardness is measured using the Mohs scale. The rating a gemstone receives is based on its ability to resist scratching, pressure, or other damages. On the Mohs scale, Moissanite’s score is between 9.25 and 9.5, making it one of the hardest substances on earth coming only second to diamonds, which measure a 10 on the Mohs scale. Because of their composition and durable qualities, these gemstones are suitable for everyday wear. Your Moissanite gemstone will never get cloudy or change color with time, it only requires occasional cleaning with a soft cloth to maintain its pristine and sparkling appearance.

Attractive Price

Moissanites are one of the most attractive and cost-friendly options on the market. They are significantly lower in price compared to a diamond of similar shape and Carat Weight making them a budget-friendly awesome alternative for many couples, but keep in mind Moissanite gems vary in price based on their size and other characteristics. In Summary, Moissanites are simply practical as they are durable, extremely affordable, gorgeous, but best of all ethically produced & sustainable.
