Moissanite vs Diamonds?

Moissanite and diamonds are both popular gemstones used in jewellery, but they have some differences in their physical properties, price, and ethical considerations. Here are some key points to consider when comparing moissanite vs diamonds:

1. Physical properties: Moissanite is a lab-created gemstone that has a similar appearance to a diamond, but is composed of silicon carbide rather than carbon. It is slightly less hard than a diamond, but still very durable and suitable for everyday wear. Moissanite has a higher refractive index than a diamond, which means it can be more sparkly and have more fire (color flashes) than a diamond.

2. Price: Moissanite is generally much less expensive than a diamond of the same size and quality. This is because moissanite is lab-created, while diamonds are mined from the earth and can be rare and difficult to find. The price difference can be significant, with a 1-carat moissanite costing a fraction of the price of a 1-carat diamond.

3. Ethics: Some people prefer moissanite over diamonds because it is a lab-created gemstone, which means it does not contribute to the environmental or ethical issues associated with diamond mining. Diamond mining can have negative impacts on the environment and local communities, and there are concerns about labor rights violations and funding of conflict in some diamond-producing regions.

Overall, the choice between moissanite and diamonds comes down to personal preference and budget. While diamonds are more traditional and have a higher perceived value, moissanite can be a great alternative for those who want a beautiful and sparkly gemstone without breaking the bank or supporting diamond mining.

Lab Diamond vs Moissanite?

  1. Composition: Moissanite is composed of silicon carbide (SiC), while lab diamonds have the same chemical composition as natural diamonds, which is carbon (C).
  2. Hardness: Moissanite is a very hard gemstone, ranking 9.25 on the Mohs scale of hardness. Lab diamonds, being chemically identical to natural diamonds, have a hardness of 10, making them the hardest substance. Lab diamonds are very slightly more durable and scratch-resistant than moissanite.
  3. Brilliance and Fire: Both moissanite and lab diamonds are known for their exceptional brilliance and sparkle. However, moissanite has a higher refractive index than diamonds, resulting in greater fire, which refers to the dispersion of light into rainbow colours. Some people prefer the fiery appearance of moissanite, while others appreciate the more subtle brilliance of diamonds.
  4. Price: Moissanite is generally more affordable than lab diamonds. While the cost of both can vary based on size, cut, and quality, moissanite tends to be significantly less expensive per carat compared to lab diamonds.
  5. Rarity: Lab diamonds, although created in a laboratory, have the same crystal structure and physical properties as natural diamonds. They are considered rare and valuable. Moissanite is a relatively abundant gemstone and is produced specifically for use as an alternative to diamonds helping to keep the price affordable for customers who want the look of a diamond but don't want to compromise on quality.
  6. Origin: Lab diamonds are grown in a laboratory through a process that replicates the natural conditions in which diamonds form. Moissanite, on the other hand, occurs naturally in small quantities but is also synthesized in laboratories to meet the demand for gem-quality moissanite as a diamond alternative for jewellery.

Ring Size Guide

Finding the right ring size will help you to find a comfortable and secure fitting ring. All of our rings are USA ring sizes unless stated otherwise. Here's a general ring size guide to help you determine your ring size:

  1. Measure with a String or Paper Strip: Take a piece of string or a thin strip of paper and wrap it around the base of your finger where the ring will sit. Mark the point where the string or paper overlaps and measure the length with a ruler. Match the measurement to a ring sizing chart to determine your size.
  2. Consider Comfort Fit: Keep in mind that different ring styles and widths can affect the fit. Wider bands may require a slightly larger size for a comfortable fit, while thinner bands may require a slightly smaller size.
  3. Consider Temperature and Time of Day: Finger sizes can vary slightly depending on temperature and time of day. It's advisable to measure your ring size when your body is at a normal temperature and avoid measuring immediately after physical activity or exposure to cold.
