Moissanite Engagement Rings

Moissanite Engagement Rings

If you are currently in the market for an engagement ring you probably can already feel the pressure. Not only do you have to set a budget and stick to it, but also you have to worry about matching your significant other’s style and personality. And, this is not to even mention all the features and vendors that you have to scroll through. The whole process can really make your head spin. Of course, the price is always the main concern for most individuals and this is why you need to know that there are other options available than just a diamond center setting. In fact, you can opt for the moissanite, which is more affordable and just as beautiful, but what are the major differences between the two?

Exploring The Color

Ask any jeweler and they will tell you that diamonds are rated on their color and this is how they are compared against each other. This is not the case with moissanite stones. This does not mean that the moissanite stone is colorless because it isn’t. In fact, the color of this stone is extremely similar to a GIA-certified K-colored diamond. Just keep in mind that the smaller you go, the more colorless it will appear. And, this same concept actually applies to diamonds as well. There are even certain lighting and reflection situation in where a moissanite stone might appear yellow or green.

Know The Hardness

When you are shopping for diamond engagement rings, you don’t really have to worry about the hardness of the stones, as the diamond is one of the strongest and most durable gems available on the market. However, when you are shopping for moissanite engagement rings this is something that you have to consider realistically. The harder the material, the more difficult it will be to scratch. And, you don’t want to invest in something that is going to scratch easily, even if it is much cheaper. Well, individuals in the market for a deal will be happy to learn that diamonds are rated at a hardness level of 10 and moissanite stones are rated with a hardness of 9.25.

So, at the end of the day, the moissanite stone isn’t far behind in the diamond in terms of hardness.

Comparing The Brilliance

When you hear some talk about the brilliance of a ring they are actually referring to the ring’s ability to reflect light. This pretty much just means how much sparkle the stone is going to give off. Most ring buyers are shocked to learn that the moissanite will actually be more brilliant than the diamond and this is due to the fact that disperses light better. Along with this, the moissanite stone doesn’t attract as much grease and dirt as the diamond does.
