Why Moissanite?

Moissanite is a beautiful, ethical, life-long option for fine jewellery.

  • Discovered on a meteorite that fell from the heavens, moissanite is a stone imbued otherworldly beauty.
  • Moissanite is one of the hardest substances in the world! So you can be sure our stones will last you a lifetime.
  • Our stones are grown in a lab, instead of mined. Future generations will thank you for choosing moissanite.

    When it comes to fine jewellery, there is a rising star in the world of gemstones: moissanite. This remarkable stone is garnering attention and becoming one of the most sought-after alternatives to traditional diamonds for engagement rings. Not only is moissanite visually stunning, but it also possesses exceptional properties that make it an excellent choice for those seeking a unique and ethical option.

    Let's delve into the world of moissanite, exploring its origins, properties, and the reasons why it makes the perfect stone for your dream engagement ring.

    1. A Celestial Discovery:
      Imagine owning a wearable star that symbolizes the celestial wonders above. Moissanite offers just that! Discovered in 1893 on an asteroid that fell from outer space, this gemstone holds a poetic allure like no other. Its cosmic origins add a touch of magic to any piece of jewellery, making it a captivating choice for those with an appreciation for the extraordinary.

    2. Outstanding Durability:
      When it comes to durability, moissanite is an incredible option. With a remarkable hardness of 9.25-9.5 on the Mohs scale, it stands as one of the hardest gemstones available. A score above 9 indicates that it is suitable for everyday wear, ensuring that your engagement ring will stand the test of time. With proper care, moissanite will sparkle just as brilliantly on your 50th wedding anniversary as it did on the day you said "yes."

    3. A Colourless Option:
      For those captivated by the allure of colorless stones, moissanite offers an exceptional alternative. While colorless stones have long been cherished as symbols of ethereal love, they also boast unmatched versatility. A colorless moissanite pairs effortlessly with any outfit or occasion. Additionally, for those seeking something bolder, moissanite is available in a variety of stunning colors, providing endless design possibilities.

    4. Mesmerising Brilliance:
      Known as the world's most brilliant gemstone, moissanite possesses a unique optical property known as double refraction. This causes moissanite to sparkle with a radiance that outshines any other stone. Its ability to capture and reflect light makes it the perfect centerpiece in any engagement ring.

    6. Social and Environmental Responsibility:
      As consumers, it is crucial to consider the ethical implications of the products we purchase. Unlike the diamond industry, which is notorious for worker exploitation and artificial scarcity, moissanite offers a socially and environmentally responsible alternative. Commercially available moissanite is lab-grown, meaning it requires no mining. By choosing moissanite, you are actively reducing the environmental impact associated with traditional gemstone production. You can wear moissanite with a clear conscience, knowing that your choice supports a more sustainable future.

    7. Luxury made attainable:
      One of the most compelling reasons to choose moissanite is its accessibility. With moissanite, you can indulge in a luxurious fine jewellery experience without compromising on your dream ring. While traditional stones often come with a significant price markup, moissanite offers a more accessible option without sacrificing quality or beauty. Moissanite provides an opportunity invest in a piece of fine jewellery that reflects your unique style and celebrates your love. Luxury is within reach - you can cherish a dreamy moissanite engagement ring without compromising your budget.
