Moissanite: The Biggest Bling for your Buck!

Traditional, clear diamonds have reigned supreme within the engagement ring industry, but they’ve found a fierce competitor in Moissanite. Radiating the same elegance and glamor, these beaming stones often pass as Diamonds; they have become a popular choice for those looking for a classic, sophisticated ring without the expense of a natural Diamond.


Discovered in 1893 by French chemist and Nobel Prize Winner Henri Moissan, Moissanite was found within a meteorite crater in the State of Arizona. Moissan, having originally believed he found a Diamond, later conducted tests to determine the chemical composition of the stone; it was then he realized he had uncovered an entirely new, and rarely occurring, mineral species!

Price - Larger stone without the price tag


Moissanite’s biggest appeal is its low price point relative to Diamond. With a lower cost per carat, Moissanite can offer a brilliant, large stone for less!

Take the Aurora with a 2.35ct Round Moissanite, for example. With a bold 9mm round stone, this Ready-to-Ship engagement ring is by no means modest. Priced at $3,345, this staggering beauty demands attention without breaking the bank. For price comparison, the Aurora with a .71ct Natural Round Diamond is $4,295.

Color - Unique color refraction


Moissanite is similar to Diamonds in their variation in clarity and color. Traditional Moissanite will present as near-colorless with slight shimmers of blues, yellows, and pinks, whereas Natural Diamonds will showcase a white sparkle.


Moissanite is also available in a wide range of colors. Blue Moissanite is a gorgeous, steely blue while Pink Moissanite offers a pop of bubble-gum pink. If you’re looking for bold colors without compromising clarity, a colorful Moissanite could be exactly what you’re looking for.




The Moh’s Hardness Scale is a standardized metric, from 1 to 10, used to distinguish the durability of a stone. The hardness is determined by the difficulty with which the mineral is scratched; the higher it ranks on the scale, the more durable the stone.


While Diamond is infamously the hardest mineral on earth (ranking at a 10 on the scale), Moissanite is giving Diamond a run for its money, with a comparable hardness of 9.25.


With both the color availability and impressive durability of Moissanite, this is a great alternative for someone who loves a softer gemstone but wants the piece-of-mind of a harder mineral. Moissanite is the perfect stone for a reliable and unique engagement ring.
