Moissanite vs. Diamonds
Moissanite is a naturally occurring mineral called silicon carbide, which is very rare and can’t be found in nature large enough to be cut into even a one-carat gemstone. So all of moissanite used in fine jewelry is created in a lab,not earth mine. Unlike moissanite, diamond is mineral from the earth. Despite their differing origins, these two gems have plenty in common. The biggest advantage of moissanite over diamonds is the price, for moissanite is considerably cheaper than a diamond. A moissanite gem is approximately one-tenth the cost of a mined diamond of equal size and quality. If you want to get a larger carat weight, for moissanite, it's easy to get a piece. Unlike mineral diamond, it's very very expensive to find a big carat stone. Now a white 1 ct moissanite sell at less than $50 when you buy from China factory direct.
You maybe worry about the durability of moissanite. Please relaxes ! As we know, diamond is the hardness mineral in the world, it's 10 Moh's scale. The second hardness of stone is moissanite with 9.25-9.5 Moh's scale. So you can wear your moissanite ring at any kind of wear and tear everyday like an anagement diamond ring.
When we buy a diamond on the store, we ask seller what color of diamond on a scale of D-Z, D being colorless and Z being a light yellow shade. Moissanite also have same color vary. Moissanite not only has DEF color (white, near colorless) but also have yellowish and greenish tint. You can now get high-quality moissanite that is colorless.
The most obvious difference between moissanite and diamonds is their brilliance. In general, moissanite has more brilliance than a diamond. It has more fire and brilliance than any other gemstone, meaning it has more sparkle. Because moissanite is double refractive, it is cut differently than diamonds to enhance the sparkle.
