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.
The extremely rare availability of this gem, found only in upper mantle rocks and meteorites, caused much speculation. It eventually led scientists to find a way to synthetically create it using particles of naturally occurring moissanites. Currently, all moissanites are grown in sophisticated laboratories. Due to this, they have minimal impact on the environment which makes them an ethical and eco-friendly option.
Optically and physically a moissanite is more brilliant than a diamond, and other popular gems such as sapphires and rubies. It also has a dispersion of 0.104, which exceeds all other gemstones. So you can expect any jewelry adorned with moissanites to exude unrivalled fire and sparkle.
Moissanite is extremely clear, sparkly, virtually flawless - all at a very reasonable price. It is superior to diamonds in terms of brilliance and sparkle and is the second-hardest gemstone in the world. This makes it perfectly durable for everyday wear and can be passed down through generations.
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).
Our Moissanite rings will test as a diamond on a gem tester.
All Moissanite pieces are custom made and can take up to 15 business days to receive.
