Moissanite is a beautiful man-made stone which is an ideal diamond alternative for those who want a more ethical and sustainable engagement ring. Scoring a 9.25 on the Mohs scale of hardness, this stone is one of the hardest substances on earth, making it perfectly suitable to wear every day.
Without close inspection, diamonds and moissanite can look and feel very similar. However, there are some key differences, such as their colour, brilliance, fire and value. Moissanite isn't colourless, unlike diamonds, and has a slightly yellow, grey or green hint but they have more fire and will produce stronger colourful flashes of light than diamonds. Moissanite also tends to be more affordable than diamonds, allowing you to buy a bigger stone for your money
Moissanite is more affordable than diamonds simply because they are lab-made rather than mined. This uses fewer resources, goes through fewer hands and can be made on demand in the exact amount needed, bringing the price down.
