The diamond has long been the stone of dreams and desires, and moissanite relatively unknown. Originally brought to earth from meteorites, a naturally occurring moissanite is rarer, and more brilliant than it’s counterpart. While this makes a natural stone virtually unattainable, a lab crafted moissanite gives the extra-terrestrial sustainable and socially responsible properties.

The brilliance is the first thing one will notice about any precious stone and moissanite does not disappoint. The refractive index is greater than even the most clear and exclusion free diamond and the spectral bursts of light, fly in brilliant color when exposed. This is a lab crafted colorless stone with no inclusions to worry about. The color shift in stones is noticeable as the size increases, typically with a yellow or grey hue. While diamond pricing can rise astronomically based on a number of factors, a moissanite stone will increase following the size increase. Attaching the price with the size is a much easier way of going about buying a stone for your dream setting. What about durability? While diamonds are known to be the hardest known mineral and rating 10 on the Mohs hardness scale, moissanite is 9.25 making it a very close second and a stone that will have no issues scratching or chipping with every day wear. All of the familiar shapes are available, in every imaginable size.
