Custom Moissanite Rings

Moissanite is a naturally occurring mineral but its occurrence in nature is incredibly limited, meaning that the rarity of natural moissanite crystals large enough for jewelry would be far, far too expensive to be practical. For years, scientists tried to re-create this brilliant, diamond-like material but it’s only recently that a way was developed to produce Moissanite in a laboratory is truly a unique and beautiful blend of art and science.

While the center stone of an engagement ring is often a diamond in the United States, there are other options that can make an engagement ring just as beautiful. Moissanite, which originates from space meteorites and is not a gem you find naturally on Earth is lab-created because sourcing its natural form is nearly impossible in nature. Since new Moissanites are grown in labs, the environment the gemstone grows in can be controlled and regulated for more the most consistent and best production results.

Moissanite is ideal in terms of its hardness, as well – the harder a material, the more difficult it is to scratch or chip. While no gemstone is indestructible, some gemstones are slightly harder and more durable for daily wear. On the Mohs Scale of Hardness, Moissanite is rated as a 9.5 out of 10, which is higher than any gemstone used in jewelry besides Diamond itself! Diamonds are the hardest known mineral, at a 10 on the Mohs scale. For reference, rubies and sapphires have an Mohs score of 9, and emeralds have a score of 7.
