The Beauty of Moissanite Jewelry

One of the trends in jewelry purchasing, and in particular for engagement rings, is to choose a beautiful ring that does not break the bank. Top jewelers in Jacksonville, FL, offer a practical solution to a diamond with the look and beauty of a traditional engagement ring, but only about a third of the cost.

This amazing stone is known as moissanite. It is a unique type of gemstone is made from microscopic particles from a meteorite that landed in Arizona. Discovered by Henri Moissan in 1893 the particles were believed to be diamond particles. Even today, moissanite is commonly mistaken for diamonds. Being durable, beautiful, and environmentally friendly, moissanite rings are ideal for everyday jewelry or those special pieces.

Qualities of the Gemstone

Diamonds are the hardest mineral at a 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. Moissanite scores at 9.25, which means it is durable to wear and will not scratch or chip with typical use, very similar to a diamond.

One of the most important differences is the faceting pattern of the gemstone compared to the diamond. With more facets and refractive ability, these gemstones really sparkly and have that internal, colorful fire, which is significantly more pronounced than found with traditional diamonds of any cut.

As with a diamond, moissanite comes in various sizes and with slight color variations from yellow to gray. Though production in the lab, this color variation can be minimized with the Premium and Super Premium stones. They make a wonderful option for a dazzling engagement and wedding ring set for anyone in Jacksonville, FL.
