Learn About Moissanite

Although a center stone is typically a diamond, there are other options that can make an engagement ring more affordable and just as beautiful. Moissanite is a rare gem that has almost all of the qualities of a diamond. Natural moissanite is incredibly rare, so moissanite available today is laboratory-created.

Moissanite's fire exceeds that of any popular gemstone, including diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald. Fire can be measured scientifically; with a dispersion of 0.104, moissanite has 2.4 times the fire of diamond.

Moissanite is durable, tough and extremely resistant to scratching and abrasion. With a hardness of 9.25, moissanite is harder than all other gemstones except diamond.

Why is moissanite sold by millimeter and not carat weight? Carat weight is the traditional measuring unit of a diamond's weight. Moissanite is usually listed in millimeters because it weighs approximately 10 percent less than diamond. For example, a 6.5mm round diamond weighs 1.0 carat, while a 6.5mm round moissanite weighs 0.88 carat.All stones for sale are listed with their size in millimeters and the diamond equivalent weight in carats.

What shapes are available? While a round cut continues to be our most popular, fancy cuts such as cushion, oval, emerald, princess, radiant, pear, heart, trillion, trapezoid, elongated cushions, elongated emeralds,

How to clean moissanite? You can clean a moissanite the same way you would diamond or any other fine gemstone. As with any fine jewelry item, you would not want to dump all of your jewelry into an ultrasonic cleaner at once to guard against possible chipping, but your moissanite jewel is perfectly safe under normal ultrasonic cleaning. You can also clean them with a commercial (non-acid based) jewelry cleaner or mild soap and water using a soft toothbrush.
