    Moissanites look incredibly similar to diamonds, yet cost far less. Moissanites can cost up to 90% less than diamonds, making them an affordable choice.

  • Beautiful Brilliance

    Moissanites have a unique scintillation that’s simply captivating. These gems have a high refractive index, giving them incredible fire and brilliance.

  • Highly Durable

    Moissanites are extremely durable, tough, and scratch-resistant, so they’re an excellent choice for daily wear.

  • Conflict-Free

    The moissanites you’ll find sold today are lab-created, which means they’re always conflict-free and sustainably sourced.

Why Choose Moissanite as a Diamond Alternative?

What is moissanite?

Moissanite is a brilliant, transparent gemstone that’s often chosen as an alternative to a diamond. Moissanites, made of silicon carbide, have a high refractive index that gives them a beautiful scintillation. Moissanites are also very durable, which makes them a practical choice for everyday wear. With their 9.25 to 9.5 hardness rating, moissanites are harder than every gemstone other than diamonds.

Is moissanite lab-created?

The moissanite you’ll find sold in jewelry stores, such as Forever One moissanite, is lab-created. Natural moissanite does exist, but it’s extraordinarily rare. So rare, in fact, that it’s practically impossible to use it to create jewelry-- there simply isn’t enough in the world.

Is moissanite a simulated diamond or a lab diamond?

No, moissanite is not a simulated diamond or a lab-grown diamond. Moissanite may look similar to a diamond, but it is an entirely separate type of lab-created gemstone with its own unique chemical structure and properties.

Do moissanites look good with diamond side stones?

We certainly think so! Many moissanite rings feature round or baguette cut diamond side stones, and we think the combination of moissanite and diamonds is stunning. If you’re wondering how you’ll feel about a moissanite and diamond ring, visit our showroom to view some of our halo or diamond band moissanite styles.
