WHAT IS MOISSANITE 

MOISSANITE WAS ORIGINALLY DISCOVERED BY HENRI MOISSAN WHILE EXAMINING ROCK SAMPLES FROM A METEOR CRATER LOCATED IN ARIZONA IN 1983 AFTER MISTAKENLY IDENTIFYING THE CRYSTALS AS DIAMONDS AT FIRST. MOISSANITE IS CONSIDERED A GOOD DIAMOND ALTERNATIVE, WITH SOME OPTICAL PROPERTIES EXCEEDING THOSE OF A DIAMOND. BELOW WE HAVE LISTED 4 OF OUR MAIN REASONS AS TO WHY WE PREFER USING MOISSANITE IN OUR JEWELLERY. 

1

ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS MOISSANITE IS CONSIDERED A GREAT DIAMOND ALTERNATIVE IS BECAUSE OF ITS READING OF 9.5 ON THE METAL OF HARDNESS SCALE (MOH). DIAMONDS COME IN AT 10 MAKING THEM THE HARDEST WEARING, BUT MOISSANITE IS RIGHT UP THERE MEANING DIAMONDS ARE NOT THE ONLY FOREVER STONE AVAILABLE. YOU CAN HAVE CONFIDENCE THAT YOUR MOISSANITE WILL HOLD UP IN DAY TO DAY LIFE AND STILL LOOK AS BEAUTIFUL AS IT DID ON DAY ONE SEVERAL YEARS DOWN THE LINE.

2

AT SOME POINT THE MAJORITY OF US HAVE PROBABLY HEARD ABOUT THE DIAMOND INDUSTRY AND THE TERM BLOOD DIAMONDS, WITH MOISSANITE YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WHERE YOUR STONES ARE COMING FROM. MOISSANITE IS MUCH MORE ETHICAL, HAS A SMALLER CARBON FOOTPRINT AND IS VERY ECO FRIENDLY. MOISSANITE IS CONFLICT FREE AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT UNSAFE WORKING CONDITIONS THAT COME ALONG WITH DIAMOND MINING.

MOISSANITE IS IN NO WAY A FAKE DIAMOND, IT IS A GEMSTONE OF ITS OWN BUT IT DOES HAVE SIMILAR PROPERTIES TO A DIAMOND. MOISSANITE IS ACTUALLY MORE SPARKLY THAN A DIAMOND DUE TO ITS DOUBLE REFLECTIVE INDEX MEANING YOU GET MORE SPARKLE FOR YOUR BUCK! OUR MOISSANITE STONES ARE INCREDIBLY AFFORDABLE FOR THE QUALITY AND SIZE WE OFFER AND WE ONLY EVER PICK AND CUT THE BEST TO MAXIMISE EVERY STONES POTENTIAL WITH NO VISIBLE FLAWS AND A CLARITY OF VS OR ABOVE.
