What You Can Expect From Your Moissanite Engagement Ring

Moissanite is an overnight sensation for alternative engagement rings. Moisssanite is a lab created gemstone that is similar in appearance (colorless with fire and brilliance) to a diamond. Moissanite is ideal for anyone that is looking for a more economical and ethical choice for their engagement ring. At deBebians, we do adhere to the most ethical practices in the diamond and colored stone business. However, many of our customers are interested in man-made gemstones, such as moissanite. Moissanite provides an environmentally cleaner and safer means of obtaining a gorgeous engagement ring that will last forever and cost you a lot less money than a traditional diamond ring.

The visual expectations for color in synthetic moissanite are that it should appear like a diamond. Our loose moissanite section features only 'colorless' moissanite from your choice of Forever One Moissanite from Charles & Colvard or the Harro Gem. These two branded options are manufactured with the highest standards and are available in a variety of carat weights and shapes. Both of these brands is are testaments to the advancements that have been made in lab created gemstones. Synthetic gemstones are produced by mimicking the natural process that occurs deep within the earth. Charles & Colvard and the Harro Gem have achieved great success in controlling the lab environment to create consistently beautiful stones and this well is in itself is a remarkable victory and part of the beauty of moissanite.

The sparkle factor of synthetic moissanite is more extreme than a diamond. Synthetic moissanite has more brilliance (white light) and fire (rainbow spectral colors) than a diamond. Moissanite gives off more sparkle than a diamond because of its higher refractive index. Most people fall in love with a diamond because of its sparkle. However, moissanite will perform better than a diamond in terms of sparkle.

The last thing that everyone can expect from their moissanite engagement ring is that it will last a lifetime. A diamond is admired for its indestructible qualities and hardness. However, synthetic moissanite is a 9.5 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. A moissanite engagement ring will last forever and will not degrade overtime. The metaphor that your love will be as indestructible as a diamond is still preserved when purchasing a synthetic moissanite engagement ring from deBebians.
