Are traditional diamonds still a girl’s best friend? There are many ads across social media, television, and magazines to try to convince you that you must spend at least three months of your salary, on a real diamond. Diamonds are the most common gemstones on earth. But they still cost a fortune because they are advertised to be extremely rare. So which one should you choose moissanite diamonds or real diamonds?
You can still find that glistening sparkle that can dazzle a special moment, for a much lower price. Moissanite Diamond is a perfect alternative for those who are on a budget. It can cost up to 90 percent less than a traditional diamond.
Moissanite is not a fake diamond. It is a high-quality gemstone on its own, even though it resembles a real diamond. The refractive index of Moissanite diamond jewelry is very high. So, you get extreme brilliance from its rainbow sparkle, unlike the colorless shine from original diamonds.
It’s crucial for modern jewelry to be ethical. Just to mine one carat of a traditional diamond from the ground, one ton of earth needs to be removed. However, Moissanite diamonds were created in a lab instead of being mined from the earth. Moissanite diamond was first discovered in a meteorite crater by Henri Moissan, who the gem is named after. Then its composition was recreated through science and technology by Charles & Colvard. That’s what makes Moissanite diamonds one of the most sustainable pieces of fine jewelry for women. Wouldn’t that be a great story to talk about the next time someone compliments your Moissanite diamond ring or earrings?
