About Moissanite

A Gem From The Stars


It all began more than 120 years ago, when Nobel Prize winning chemist Dr. Henri Moissan discovered Moissanite (silicon carbide) in a meteorite crater. Dr. Moissan and countless other researchers resolved to find a way that science could reproduce this remarkable yet extremely rare mineral, which held such promise.

​Fast forward a century. After years of experimentation, a patented process for creating pure silicon carbide (SiC)  is created. A long-sought-after breakthrough has happened, which made it possible to bring to the market a new brilliant gemstone​. Well known Tiffany & Co gemologist George Kunz will go on to name the gemstone Moissanite in honour of Dr. Moissan.

Moissanite's hardness rivaled that of any mineral on Earth, and its sparkle exceeded that of even diamond. Here was a new type of gemstone, a beautiful product, free of environmental and ethical issues, which continues to find its place in the traditional definition of fine jewellery. 

SUSTAINABLE & CONFLICT FREE

Embrace the untouched beauty of our planet, where humanity's well-being is prioritized in the creation of this captivating gem. The allure of this lab-grown jewel extends far beyond its visual charm. Moissanite, ethically produced and without harm, becomes the ideal symbol of your love, allowing you to cherish it with a guilt-free conscience.

 

HOW DO MOISSANITE & DIAMOND COMPARE?

  

Both gemstones, Moissanite and diamonds, originate as naturally occurring minerals shaped by the intense heat and pressure within the Earth's core. However, both can now be ethically created in laboratories, ensuring a conflict-free footprint. While Moissanite is sometimes classified as a diamond simulant, we believe it possesses its own unique beauty and here's why.

Unlike cubic zirconia (CZ), a diamond simulant known for its lack of durability, Moissanite stands apart. CZ stones are porous and susceptible to scratching, discoloration, chipping, and cloudiness. In contrast, Moissanite is the second hardest gemstone used in jewellery making today. Its exceptional durability allows for everyday wear, while its high clarity, ideal cuts, and preferred color grades add to its allure.

Moissanite gemstones, created in DEF colorless grade, guarantee a lifetime of brilliance. Widely recognized as an excellent alternative to diamonds, Moissanite has been embraced by the jewellery market for over 25 years. Its popularity has soared among millennials and brides seeking diamond alternatives in the past decade, making it the number one choice for our discerning customers.

Moreover, Moissanite surpasses diamonds in terms of refraction, creating an even more captivating sparkle. Additionally, Moissanite is more affordable than diamonds, enabling the creation of extraordinary jewellery pieces without an astronomical budget

 

 

THE 5 C’S OF MOISSANITE

CUT

Each Moissanite gem undergoes meticulous calibration and expert hand-faceting by master gem cutters to achieve its utmost brilliance and ignite a remarkable fire that enhances its refractive index.

The Brilliant Cut specifically designed by LUX Moissanite takes full advantage of Moissanite's higher refractive index compared to diamonds. This round brilliant cut is skillfully crafted to optimize the unique fire inherent in Moissanite, ensuring you experience the ultimate sparkle that will leave you mesmerized.

 

COLOR

Over the past two decades, continuous research and development have been dedicated to broadening the color options available in Moissanite, driven by the ever-growing market demand. The introduction of near-colorless varieties has significantly elevated the gem's appeal, as it showcases a visibly whiter appearance that intensifies the brilliance and brightness of each stone. This expanded range now offers a wide selection within the G-H-I color range.

At the forefront of gem innovation, we proudly present our premium Moissanite, representing the pinnacle of excellence. Our gemstones shine as pure, white, and colorless treasures, surpassing all expectations. Crafted with meticulous care, our Moissanite gemstones belong to the esteemed D-E-F color range, ensuring a truly luxurious and radiant experience.

 

CLARITY

Moissanite is renowned for its exceptional clarity, boasting an "eye-clean" designation or achieving the VVS clarity grade. During the growth process of Moissanite, minuscule needle-like inclusions may naturally form. However, rest assured that our premium Moissanite undergoes rigorous selection to ensure that no visible inclusions are present to the naked eye.

Only the Moissanite gemstones that meet our stringent quality standards are chosen for our exquisite jewellery pieces. This meticulous selection process guarantees that our customers receive the highest quality Moissanite, free from any noticeable inclusions, allowing the gem's breathtaking beauty to take center stage.

CARAT SIZE

Moissanite gemstones have visual proportions comparable to typical diamond carat weights but are approximately 10% lighter in weight. This distinction often leads jewelers to sell Moissanite based on size rather than weight. For example, a 6.5mm round brilliant natural diamond would have a carat weight of around 0.90-1.0ct, while a Moissanite of the same dimensions (6.5mm) would weigh approximately 0.88 carats. Despite the slight difference in weight, they appear visually identical in size.

Similar to other gemstones, large-sized Moissanite stones are rare and require several months to create. However, their cost is significantly lower compared to a comparable diamond. This affordability factor makes Moissanite an excellent choice for those seeking bold jewellery designs that make a statement, as you can achieve a larger and more impactful look without the high price tag associated with diamonds.

 

CONFIDENCE

Renowned as The Most Brilliant Gemstone, Moissanite shines with unparalleled fire and brilliance, embodying the epitome of luxury. Each of our Moissanite gemstones that are 1 carat and larger is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity and a Limited Lifetime Warranty, ensuring the enduring brilliance of your precious stone throughout its lifetime.

Choosing Moissanite means embracing a responsible alternative to mined gems, as it is created without causing harm to the environment. The durability of Moissanite ensures that its beauty and value will last for eternity. As one of the hardest minerals on Earth, Moissanite exhibits exceptional resistance to scratching, abrasion, breaking, or chipping. We promise you that its mesmerizing fire and brilliance will remain forever, a testament to its enduring quality.
