What is a Moissanite Ring, and Why Is It So Special?
Welcome to the world of moissanite rings, where luxury and elegance meet innovation and sustainability. If you’re wondering what all the buzz is about, look no further. Moissanite engagement rings have rapidly become one of the most coveted jewellery pieces on the market and for excellent reasons.
Moissanite is a celestial gemstone born from the depths of the universe. Its discovery is rooted in an awe-inspiring tale of stargazing and scientific brilliance. Henri Moissan, a French scientist and Nobel Prize laureate in Chemistry, made a notable discovery in Arizona in 1893, detecting microscopic particles of this exceptional gemstone. These particles were found in a meteorite crater, believed to be remnants of the space debris that fell to Earth. Initially, Moissan mistook these crystals for diamonds but soon realised they were composed of silicon carbide with properties, unlike any other known precious stone.
Although moissanite is rare, the wonder of modern science and technology has made it accessible through laboratory creation. After years of experimentation and refinement, the microscopic particles discovered by Moissan were synthesised to create a breathtaking gemstone renowned for its dazzling brilliance and fire. Today, moissanite stands as one of the world’s most captivating and covetable gemstones.
The allure of moissanite rings extends far beyond their captivating beauty. One of the most remarkable aspects that sets them apart from traditional diamond rings is their affordability. In fact, moissanite rings can cost up to 85% less than diamond rings. As moissanite is grown in a laboratory, it is free from the usual costs associated with mining, shipping, and discovery of natural diamonds. This translates to lower per-carat prices than traditional diamond engagement rings without sacrificing quality or aesthetics. The result? A stunning, sparkling gemstone at an unbeatable value.
