Moissanite Buyers Guide

The Ice Guide to Buying Moissanite Rings

Moissanite is a unique gem that was originally discovered in a meteor crater back in the late 1800’s. It’s incredibly rare to find naturally, but scientists have figured out how to harvest this beautiful gemstone in labs, and the quality has continued to improve over the years, making moissanite a worthy alternative to traditional diamonds.

Why has moissanite's popularity skyrocketed in recent years?

   

Looks

Moissanite has a sparkle and brilliance that is not only eye-catching but many people believe is much stronger than diamonds. Depending on the cut, it can score higher than diamonds in the refractive index.

Price

Moissanite is a fraction of the price of mined diamonds. And while diamond prices typically vary based on the 4 C’s (cut, clarity, color and carat), moissanite only differs based on size and quality level (e.g Forever Classic by Charles & Colvard, an Ice supplier).

 

Ethics

Being grown in a lab environment means no issues around human labor exploitation (note: Ice suppliers only source ethical diamonds and gemstones).

 

Eco-cred

No mining involved, so incredibly friendly to the planet. Environment-lovers can wear it with pride.

Durability
