If you are looking for an engagement, wedding, anniversary or just plain birthday ring or pendant as a gift or to mark a special event, and would want it to be a diamond but don’t have the budget; a forever brilliant moissanite is the answer. While both may be identical looking, they each have different chemical compositions giving them unique physical characteristics and optical properties. Surprisingly, moissanites are 10% more brilliant than diamonds. They also have a higher refractive index which means you see more flashes of rainbow-coloured light, or fire, from this than from a diamond. Oddly enough, diamond attracts grease which reduces its brilliance. This isn’t the case with a moissanite, which also ranks as the second strongest mineral, after a diamond.
A product of modern science and artisan skill, a moissanite was discovered more than 100 years ago. Taken from an Arizona meteor crater, silicon carbide was transformed to become what is now known as a moissanite. Nowadays, this magnificent mineral is showcased in jewels that appeal to everyone at a fraction of a price of a diamond. Click here Moi Moi Fine Jewellery
Moissanite over a diamond for your jewelry
Much as the amazing properties of a moissanite are already mentioned, here are a few more that distinguishes it from a diamond, making it a better centerpiece for your ring or pendant.
Toughness – This is where a moissanite beats a diamond. While both are going to receive a high rating for this trait, a moissanite’s atomic structure does not have the direction of a cleavage, which is a direction of the structural weakness of a diamond.
Stability – This the ability to remain intact when exposed to temperature and chemicals. Why is this important? Because in the jewelry manufacturing process and even in repairs, other jewels are damaged. Now, that’s money and sentimentality down the drain. A moissanite has a higher vaporization temperature threshold than a diamond at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. No solutions or acids used in jewelry manufacturing can threaten this stone.
Now, do you want to find your special someone or even get yourself a jewellery with brilliance, fire and luster? Consider a forever brilliant moissanite because it is one of the most affordable gemstones. Request to have it emerald cut as it will be brighter and whiter.
If you’re a savvy gift giver and want to show this to a beloved, get a ring or a pendant with a moissanite as its gemstone.
