What is Moissanite?
Moissanite is an exceptional mix of master craftsmanship and science. In fact, they are created of the same material as natural diamonds which were formed in the earth billions of years ago. First discovered in 1893 by a French scientist named Henri Moissan, a Nobel Peace Prize winner for Chemistry. He discovered microscopic particles of the gem that would eventually bear his name, in a crater created by a meteorite that fell to Earth. It is literally made from the stars. After many years of trial and error, the particles Moissan discovered were successfully synthesized to produce what is now one of the world’s most scintillating gemstones that are almost identical. Moissanite or "Lab-created diamonds" exhibit the same optical, chemical, and physical properties as natural diamonds - The core differences are the time they took to form and their origin.
Scientists start with a diamond seed - a small sliver of carbon crystals - then expose it to temperatures and pressures with a carbon coating as it grows to help the diamond crystalize and grow to a larger rough diamond crystal.
All of our lab-created diamonds are independently certified for quality and are 100% conflict free. Any single stone over 0.3 carats will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, detailing its "4 Cs" - cut, color, clarity, and carat weight, as well as a limited warranty with the Gemological Research Association (GRA).
Are lab-created diamonds the same as natural diamonds?
Like natural diamonds, lab-created diamonds are comprised of carbon and exhibit the same optical, chemical and physical properties as natural diamonds. The core differences are the time they took to form and their origin. That's it!
Can you "tell" it's a lab-created diamond? What about the trained eye?
Because lab-created diamonds have the same optical, chemical and physical characteristics as natural diamonds, they cannot be distinguished even with a professional loupe under 10x magnification.
