    Moissanite diamonds are a type of synthetic diamond created in a laboratory. They are made from silicon carbide and have properties that are very similar to natural diamonds, but they are typically less expensive. Moissanite diamonds are a popular alternative to traditional diamonds for engagement rings and other jewellery.

    Moissanite is a high-quality gemstone that offers excellent optical properties. It has a similar appearance to diamond, but is available at a fraction of the price. Moissanite is the perfect choice for an engagement ring, as its seductive beauty and exceptional value are sure to impress.

    There are many reasons why Moissanite is a better choice than Diamond.

    Moissanite is more beautiful than a diamond because it has more brilliance, fire and lustre. These qualities make a jewel beautiful.

    Moissanite is just as durable than Diamond, meaning it is less likely to scratch or break. In addition, Moissanite does not have the negative environmental impact that Diamonds do. Lastly, Moissanite typically costs significantly less than Diamonds of comparable quality.

    Yes! Moissanite will test positive on a diamond tester that uses thermal conductivity! that's how similar it is to traditional diamonds!

    No! Moissanite is an incredible gemstone that has become popular because of its beauty and durability. It's more vibrant than a diamond, but not so much as to be considered fake - it still maintains the traditional sparkly look you love from jewelry made with Diamonds. In fact Moissanite is so similar to mined diamonds that the human eye can not tell the difference!

    Moissanite is an amazing stone that never changes its appearance or becomes cloudy. It will always be as beautiful as it was when you first got the ring!
