What is Moissanite?

Moissanite is a gemstone that originates from somewhere unknown in the cosmos. It was discovered in 1893 by French scientist Henri Moissan, who later won a Nobel Prize for Chemistry. In in a crater created by a meteorite that fell to Earth in Arizona, he discovered small particles of the gem that would later be named after him. He initially thought that he had found  a diamond substance, but later determined that the crystals were composed of silicon carbide.  Natural moissanite is incredibly rare, so the vast majority of Custom Moissanite Engagement Rings available today is grown in a lab. After years of trial and error, the particles Moissan discovered were successfully synthesized in a mass setting to produce what is now one of the world’s most fiery & popular gemstones.

Custom Moissanite Engagement Rings – Better than Diamond in Some Ways

Custom Moissanite Engagement Rings – East West 3 Stone Engagement Ring

This the East West version of one of our 3 Stone Oval Engagement Rings; and it is definitely simple and refined.  Its uniqueness is that the stones are set horizontally rather than the typical vertical style. This one had an 8x6mm Sapphire and 2, 6x4mm diamonds.  Other sizes and stone combos are possible.

Moissanite is engineered to possess the look of a diamond, but is made of different molecules that are arranged differently and visually quite distinct from a real diamond.  In fact, it requires a gemologist or special tester to discern the difference between a diamond and moissanite.  The durability, brilliance, and color of the two gems are quite unique, although put a Custom Moissanite Engagement Rings next to one with a comparable diamond and they are very difficult to discern.  One of the key differences between moissanite and diamonds is that moissanite stones reflect light in a different way to diamonds. Due to their faceting, moissanite gems create flashes of light that have a rainbow effect, whereas diamonds produce three types of light: brilliance, dispersion and scintillation.

Custom Moissanite Engagement Rings – Very Real Benefits

For similar sizes, moissanite is dramatically lower in price than diamonds of they are man-made.  Moissanite gems vary in price only based on size and the color grading of the stones.  Custom Moissanite Engagement Rings offer you a way to get a stone that looks like a diamond, but costs far less.

Custom Moissanite Engagement Rings

As you can see, there are benefits other than cost to having a Moissanite Ring made, whether engagement or any other type.    While CZ is a budget friendly diamond alternative, it fades and isn’t very durable.  You can always tell an old CZ ring because the stones are all beat up.  CZ gemstones are mass-produced, often cut by machine. And usually not very well cut. They are hard to the point of being brittle and do not hold color or clarity.  Moissanite is very durable.  However, the most attractive benefit to many is the eco friendly nature of a lab stone.  There are no mines, no forced labor, and no warlords creating Moissanite.  So you can feel good about buying it.

Custom Moissanite Engagement Rings

Given the name moissanite after Henri Moissan who first discovered it back in 1893, it was the most brilliant gem stone the world has ever seen. But it wasn’t until the mid-90’s when two companies started to perfect the process of creating moissanite, that it was synthesized without a flaw and equated those few moissanite stones found in nature.  Another 10 years go by and Custom Moissanite Engagement Rings are one of the most popular options around.

It is also engineered to never lose its optical properties and therefore will be every bit as beautiful 20, 30 or 100 years from the moment you buy it.  Moissanite is known for its high refractive index(RI) of 2.65, which is notably higher than diamond, sapphire, CZ and other gemstones.
