What is Moissanite?

Moissanite is a lab-created gemstone that closely resembles a diamond. It is known for its brilliance, fire, and durability, making it a popular alternative to diamonds. Moissanite is also more affordable than diamonds, making it an attractive option for those looking for a high-quality gemstone without the hefty price tag for jewellery such as wedding rings, necklaces and bracelets.

How Does Moissanite Shine Compare to CZ?

While both moissanite and CZ are affordable alternatives to diamonds, they differ in their shine and sparkle. Moissanite has a higher refractive index than CZ, which means it reflects more light and has more brilliance. The fire and sparkle of moissanite are often compared to that of a diamond, making it a top choice for those seeking a gemstone with exceptional shine for pieces such as solitaire rings or stud earrings.

Comparing Moissanite Shine to Diamond

When comparing moissanite to diamond, the differences in shine are more subtle. While diamonds are known for their unmatched sparkle and brilliance, moissanite comes close in terms of shine. In fact, many people find it difficult to distinguish between a moissanite and a diamond based on shine alone.

Overall, moissanite offers a brilliant shine that rivals that of both CZ and diamond. Whether you're looking for an affordable alternative to diamond or simply want a stunning gemstone with exceptional sparkle, moissanite is a fantastic choice.
