Moissanite is the best diamond simulant on the market today. It looks very similar to a diamond - a little more sparkle but otherwise identical - and is nearly as hard. It costs a fraction of what diamonds do, and many customers choose this option for their engagement rings. Moissanite is a natural, rare mineral made of silicon and carbon. If you’re looking for a center stone that’s hard and shiny but less expensive than diamonds, moissanite is a good choice. It has the following upsides. A moissanite stone looks similar to a diamond and costs far less. That means you can go higher in carat weight without paying a fortune. Moissanite has near-flawless clarity. You won’t see any flaws or inclusions in a good stone. After diamonds, moissanite is the most durable gemstone around. It has a rank of 9.25-9.5 on the Mohs hardness scale (diamonds are a 10). It doesn’t scratch, tarnish, or rub out like many other gemstones.
Every piece of jewelry containing a single moissanite over 0.3 carats comes with a certificate of authenticity and a limited warranty card with the gemological research association (gra). 🤍
