About The Moissanite Engagement Rings

Moissanite engagement rings are a fairly new addition to the engagement ring family and with extra sparkle, fire and brilliance it’s not hard to see why it’s becoming popular.

Because of the absolute expense of natural diamonds, relatively cheap simulated diamonds are always in demand. The most notable of these is cubic zirconia which has earned a reputation for being very cheap indeed (maybe too cheap?).

Moissanite on the other hand is slightly different. Its chief properties make it far more over the top than diamond and cubic zirconia which really puts it beyond comparison.

Anyone who knows about the properties of diamonds and cubic zirconia can tell you that moissanite will never make a good simulated diamond simply because it literally has twice the optical properties of any diamond which puts moissanite in a league of its own.

Cubic zirconia is much closer to diamond making it a better diamond simulant by far. Moissanite engagement rings therefore, should be respected not as a simulated diamond engagement rings but rather as spectacular pieces of jewelry in their own right.

Moissanite properties mean that they are twice as brilliant as diamonds (more light is reflected back from inside the gemstone). They also produce twice as much fire (The action of splitting light into its rainbow colors). So moissanite truly is a magnificent gemstone in its own right.

About The Moissanite Engagement Rings

Moissanite engagement rings with larger stones will have a small downside to them in that moissanite is naturally tinted green and also fluoresces green in strong UV light e.g. sunlight, interior nightclub lighting e.t.c…

However this is a fairly small concern as long as you’re not trying to imitate diamonds which are mostly tinted yellow and have a small amount of natural blue fluorescence to them.

Moissanite engagement rings are here to stay and as long as you understand and don’t want to compare them to diamond engagement rings then you’ve only got your future fiancée to convince which shouldn’t be too hard.

Moissanite engagement rings are very fashionable and moissanite is also very hard wearing so these rings will stand the test of time. Diamonds are more durable to a certain extent but moissanite definitely outclasses cubic zirconia in this department.

All in all try cubic zirconia engagement rings if you want to simulate diamond equivalents. Go for moissanite engagement rings if you want something different or fashionable.

Alternatively stick with diamond engagement rings for the ultimate in rarity and durability.
