Equivalent Diamond Weight:
Carat is the traditional measuring unit of a diamond's weight (1 carat = 200 milligrams). A carat is divided into 100 "points," so the same diamond can be represented as weighing a carat and a half, 150 points or 1.50 carats. Moissanite stones are about 18 - 20% lighter than diamonds. Therefore, while a 6.5mm round diamond weighs 1.0 carat, a 6.5mm moissanite weighs 0.83 - 0.85 carat. However, the two stones would be the same actual size: 6.5mm in diameter. So equivalent diamond weight is not actual moissanite weight.
Moissanite weighs about 10% less than a diamond of the same diameter, therefore, moissanite of the same carat weight of a diamond is larger. Stones are described in millimeters and in diamond equivalent weight. Here is a Moissanite Size Chart !

What you need to know about moissanite:
Moissanite was first discovered in a meteor crater in 1893 by a scientist named Henri Moissan. Today, naturally-occurring moissanite is incredibly rare. That’s why almost all moissanite used in jewelry has been lab created.
Moissanite is actually more brilliant than a diamond, because its higher “refractive index” (Diamond’s is 2.42, whereas Moissanite’s is 2.65) and moissanite has a higher dispersion than a diamond. That's why your moissanite will look like a firework next to a diamond.
Moissanite stays super sparkly for its whole life, due to its superior hardness and great refractive index. So you never have to worry about it's beoming dull, losing its brilliance, or getting foggy. Like a diamond, it can keep fire, beautiful and brilliant forever !
Moissanite is a very hard gem, but not quite as hard as diamond. On the Mohs Scale of Hardness, moissanite is rated as a 9.25. It's great higher than any gemstone used in jewelry besides diamonds( diamond is 10 score , the hardest known mineral in the world). The harder a material, the more difficult it is to scratch.
Moissanite is a fraction of the cost of a diamond. Also, while a diamond’s price varies based on cut, clarity, and other individual characteristics, moissanite varies only with type and size. Moissanite is a great option for couples on a budget, those looking for a man-made option for sustainable reasons, or those who simply do not feel the need to spend a lot on a ring.
