Choosing Moissanite Engagement Rings

The demand for moissanite engagement rings has risen in recent years. This makes them one of the most sought-after non-diamond gemstones to be used for engagement rings.

Moissanite emerald-cut engagement stones are beautiful, durable, bright, affordable, and very attractive. Here are a few things to keep in mind before buying a moissanite ring for your engagement.

Moissanite Cut: Moissanite can be cut into any of the popular gemstone shapes like diamonds. These include the pear, cushion, and princess rounds, as well as marquise and emerald cuts. Moissanite stones shine and sparkle when faceted. However, when cut into step cuts they reveal the calm and depth brilliance.

Moissanite Color: Moissanite can be either colorless or transparent. Because of its classic appearance, this is moissanite's preferred color. As technology improves for making moissanite, it can now be found in other colors, such as green, gray, and pink.

Moissanite Clarity: Moissanite, a laboratory-created rock, is nearly always flawless in appearance. Because it has been formed over millions of years, there won't be the common inclusions found in gemstones. Although there are some small flaws in moissanite they are not visible to the naked eye.

Moissanite Carat Weight: Moissanite, unlike diamonds which are measured in carats, is measured in millimeters. Moissanite has a lower density than diamonds. Moissanite will therefore weigh about 10% less than a comparably sized diamond. There are many sizes of moissanite, but you should consider large stones. They can show strong flashes and can be very expensive.
