    ...and the WINNER is.....

    The moissanite craze is officially here!  We are sure you are as excited about these gemstones as we are. In the past few months we have had customers lining up to get their hands on our engagement ring designs featuring a moissanite center. Moissanites make a great diamond alternative because they are white gems, have lots of sparkle, and come in a variety of sizes and shapes. We love moissanite because our clients can have more freedom to choose the design they really want and the center stone of their dreams without breaking the bank. 

     

    Pricing for moissanite is one of its most appealing qualities. Moissanite gems cost a fraction of what an actual diamond will cost if you compare the same size and quality. For example, a 1 carat moissanite can cost approx $800 whereas a 1 carat GIA certified diamond can cost around $6000 and up depending on quality. A 3 carat oval moissanite can cost $3000 whereas a 3 carat  oval diamond costs at the minimum $35,000 for something good quality. This is a huge savings and makes Moissanite worth taking a second look.

     

    If sparkle and fire is the thing that makes your heart sing, Moissanites are Brilliant , clear white gemstones, and carry a hardness of 9.25 on the MOHS scale, making them suitable for everyday wear and perfect for E-Rings.We have yet to see too much sparkle from these stones. 

     

    Round and Round We go: Round moissanites in our opinion look most similar to a real diamond since the shape is easy to mimic and there are no variations. The main difference you will see, is your Moissanite will sparkle more than your diamond side by side. Round moissanites are now being manufactured starting at 0.70mm so we can now use these beautiful stones in more ways that we have even been able to before!

     

    Are Ovals Your Thing? Oval moissanites side by side can be slightly more discernible from their diamond counterpart. Side by side, the oval gives off more sparkle and the faceting is more defined, Our increased development in this stone now allows us to cut them in any size your like , so go for an elongated oval if that's what you love.

     

     

    A Little Cushion For The Pushin : Cushion moissanites may be our favourite. We love the look of cushion brilliant cut diamonds, and these Cushion Moissanites put those to sleep! We love Elongated cushions, Old Mine Cuts , Old European Cuts, Jubilee Cuts, and the list goes on and on. We are able to cut your cushion anyway you like it.

     

     

     

    Rad Radiant !  Radiant cut diamonds are known for providing a great sparkle for a fancy cut and this is no different when it comes to a moissanite.  In Radiant Cut moissanite the facets of this stone is clear and concise, giving your ring that extra kick of sparkle.

     

     

     

     

    Pear Perfection ! The Pear shaped  moissanite can appear slightly more rounded and softer than the  shape of the pear shape diamond, but this does not change the fact that this fancy cut is still an option.  This fancy shape in Moissanite is still a strong contender. Giving lots of fire and brilliance to that statement piece.

     

     

    Moissanite comes in a variety of qualities to select from, however choosing moissanite quality is a lot simpler than choosing diamond quality .

    With near perfect clarity (VVS) and Color (DEF or GHI) it is easier than ever to pick your perfect stone. No need to settle for imperfections and warmer stones  now that Moissanite is here.
