Moissanite Engagement Rings

Affordable Moissanite Engagement Rings

Moissanite Engagement Rings are one of the hottest items in the jewelry world right now. Especially with millennials, who love the benefits a moissanite stone offers. It has more fire and is almost as durable as a Diamond, yet costs a fraction of the price of a comparable-looking diamond. Additionally, it lacks the environmental problems that plague African Diamonds. There are no child laborers mining Moissanite. Nor does Moissanite cause ecological damage to the surrounding area like diamond mining does. And it looks so much like a diamond that it requires its own tester to differentiate between the 2 stones.

Moissanite is a gemstone that is gaining popularity as an alternative to diamonds. It was first discovered in 1893 by French chemist Henri Moissan, hence the name. Moissanite is composed of silicon carbide and is known for its brilliance and fire, which is comparable to that of a diamond. It is also extremely durable, making it a great choice for everyday wear. Additionally, moissanite is more affordable than diamonds, making it a budget-friendly option for those who want the look of a diamond without the hefty price tag. Overall, moissanite is a beautiful and practical choice for anyone in search of a stunning gemstone.

This 2 stone ring elegantly displays two offset 4mm stones in this simpler yet not of our Moissanite Engagement Rings.  We can make this ring with larger stones and we have also created it with accents in the band.

This is your typical 3 stone ring, but we turned the oval stones in an east west orientation.  We really like this look and despite this post being about Moissanite, we like a colored stone in the center.

This is one of our Sculptural Engagement Ring designs that we love.  The center stone is secured by 6 prongs that are accented with 1mm stones.  If you don’t like 6 prongs, or don’t want the accents on the prongs, we can change that.  The shank is an alternation of diamond accents and knife edged milgrain. If you wanted more stones, we could probably add 2-4 more.  We could also remove stones.


Moissanite is a gemstone that originates in the heavens and was discovered in 1893 by Frenchmen Henri Moissan, who later won a  Nobel Prize for Chemistry. In Arizona, he discovered small particles of the gem that would later be named after him, in a crater created by a meteorite that fell to Earth. He initially thought that he had found diamonds, but later decided that the crystals were composed of silicon carbide. Over 100 years later, the synthetic version of celestial stone has become one of the hottest trends in the jewelry industry.

Natural moissanite is incredibly rare, so most moissanite commercially available today is grown in a lab. After many years of trial and error, the particles Moissan discovered were successfully synthesized to produce one of the world’s most fiery gemstones.

This Floral Split Shank Engagement Ring is one of the more unique engagement rings we have created.  In it, the shank splits from a bezel set stone at 10 & 2 O’clock.  From there, two diamond crusted leaves arch up to the center stone, almost as if holding the center stone up.

Moissanite is engineered to give the look of a diamond, but is is made of different molecules and visually quite different from a real diamond. The durability, brilliance, and color of the two gems are quite unique, making it perfect for moissanite rings. In fact, Moissanite will fool most diamond testers and they require a special tester to differentiate between the two.  This is great for consumers wanting a moissanite ring, but not good for the people who are sold moissanite as diamond rings!

Why Affordable Moissanite Engagement Rings Are Popular At The Moment

Moissanite engagement rings have gained immense popularity recently. These stunning gemstones have become a top choice for couples seeking an alternative to traditional diamond rings. With their exceptional brilliance and affordability, moissanite rings offer a perfect combination of beauty and value. Their eco-friendly nature and durability make them an appealing choice for those looking for a sustainable and long-lasting symbol of love. It’s no wonder that moissanite engagement rings are currently in high demand.

One of the main reasons for the surge in popularity of moissanite engagement rings is their remarkable sparkle. These gemstones have a higher refractive index than diamonds, resulting in a dazzling display of light and fire. They are known for their exceptional brilliance and ability to catch the eye from every angle. Moissanite rings offer a stunning alternative to traditional diamond rings, providing couples with a unique and eye-catching symbol of their love.

Affordability is another key factor contributing to the popularity of moissanite engagement rings. Compared to diamonds, moissanite gemstones are significantly more affordable. Couples can enjoy the beauty and elegance of a large, high-quality stone without breaking the bank. This affordability allows couples to allocate their budget towards other important aspects of their wedding or future together, making moissanite rings a practical and smart choice.

In addition to their beauty and affordability, moissanite engagement rings are also an eco-friendly option. These gemstones are created in a lab, eliminating the need for mining and reducing the environmental impact associated with traditional diamond mining. Furthermore, moissanite is an incredibly durable gemstone, making it an ideal choice for everyday wear. Its hardness and resistance to scratching ensure that the ring will maintain its beauty and sparkle for years to come.

Benefits of Moissanite

Moissanite engagement rings offer several benefits. First, they are an affordable alternative to traditional diamond rings. Despite their lower cost, moissanite stones possess exceptional brilliance and fire, making them visually stunning. Second, moissanite is a durable gemstone, ranking as the second hardest material on the Mohs scale. This means that moissanite engagement rings are resistant to scratches and can withstand everyday wear and tear. Lastly, moissanite is an ethical choice for engagement rings, as it is a lab-created gemstone. Unlike diamonds, which can be associated with unethical mining practices, moissanite is an eco-friendly and socially responsible option. 

Overall, moissanite engagement rings offer affordability, durability, and ethical appeal, making them an excellent choice for couples seeking a beautiful and responsible symbol of their love.

This is one of our first Skull Engagement Rings.  It had a french pave set infinity band with black diamonds in it.  Underneath the center stone was 2 skulls. If you like the head, but not the band, we can always create a ring with a different band.

This is another of our 2 stone rings.  It was large, totaling almost 3 carats, but the stones could be smaller. The accents were French Pave set, but we could also make this with prong settings.  We also have created it with graduated stones in the band.


Moissanite is grown through a process called chemical vapor deposition (CVD). In this method, a small piece of natural moissanite is used as a seed crystal. The seed crystal is placed in a chamber that is filled with a mixture of gases, including silicon and carbon. These gases are then heated to a high temperature, causing them to break down and form a plasma. The plasma contains atoms of silicon and carbon, which are then deposited onto the seed crystal, layer by layer, over a period of several weeks or months. This process allows the moissanite to grow in a controlled and precise manner, resulting in a high-quality gemstone.

One of the advantages of growing moissanite through CVD is that it allows for the production of large, high-quality crystals. Because the process is controlled and precise, the resulting moissanite gemstones are free from impurities and have a consistent color and clarity. Additionally, the CVD method allows for the creation of moissanite in a variety of shapes and sizes, making it a versatile option for jewelry design.

Another advantage of growing moissanite through CVD is that it is a more environmentally friendly alternative to mining natural moissanite. By growing moissanite in a lab, the need for mining is eliminated, reducing the impact on the environment. Additionally, the CVD method allows for the production of moissanite in a more efficient manner, resulting in less waste and energy consumption.


This Sculptural Solitaire Engagement Ring is a type of bypass ring that we just love.  The shank is a wave of motion is it travels from one end of the ring to the opposite end.  The 6 prong basket securely holds even the largest stone intact.  This one is shown with a 5mm center stone, but smaller or larger could be used.

Compared with natural gemstones, synthetic Moissanites have a much smaller carbon footprint and result in less environmental impact. Fine jewelry made with Moissanites and eco-friendly metals are a perfect way to help the planet out while also saving some money.

 We had a customer with a bunch of old jewelry that she wanted repurposed into something new.  This is a spin on that ring.  We made it in round and rounded square shapes as well.   The 2mm diamonds in the cushion halo are french pave set, but we could make this a shared prong setting as well.  It is also possible to play with stone sizes or even remove a halo if you like.

Until recently, Charles and Colvard had the Moissanite market cornered.   However, recently, Asian manufacturers have figured out how to create Moissanite as white and clean as the forever one branded stones.   Either way, these are good developments for both consumers and jewelers alike as customers will have more options as stone prices drop.  Although the generic stones take longer to arrive, the savings over the Charles and Colvard stones is well worth it.


Not everyone can afford a diamond. And many just aren’t interested in spending that much money on something you wear on your finger. Consequently, recent and current brides are obsessed with a non-diamond engagement ring that’s way cheaper than its sparkly cousin.  Consequently, diamond dealers are taking notice.  Debeers recently announced they would begin selling lab grown diamonds for $700 a carat.   That is suspiciously close to the price for the center stones in most Moissanite Engagement Rings.  Additionally, retailers like Robbins Brothers and Zales are now selling Moissanite Engagement Rings after thumbing their noses at it for years.
