5 Reasons Why Moissanite is Better than Diamonds


Moissanite is becoming one of the most sought after jewels for engagement rings and you may not have even heard about Moissanite until only recently!  Here we are going to cover what Moissanite is and the 5 reasons why Moissanite is a great choice for your special piece of jewellery.

Moissanite might look just like a diamond, but it is not related to diamonds at all.  Moissanite is a completely unique jewel in it’s own right. Just like Blue Topaz can look similar to Aquamarine, they are totally different jewels.  Moissanite is made from the natural mineral Silicon Carbide and Diamonds are made of Carbon.  Natural Moissanite is incredibly rare, so Moissanite today is lab-grown. 

SUPERNOVA Moissanite offered by Moi Moi is the best quality Moissanite available. It is colourless, has VVS clarity and will last forever. Typically a Moissanite jewel will be 90% cheaper than a mined diamond and it is extremely difficult to tell the difference between the two. They even shine brighter than a diamond!  Let’s uncover what makes Moissanite so exciting and appealing.


1. More Beauty

Round Engagement G04

What makes a jewel beautiful is it’s sparkle. Sparkle can be scientifically measured by how much brilliance (refractive index), fire (dispersion) and lustre (shine) a jewel has.
Moissanite has so much more sparkle than any other jewel, including diamonds!  In fact it has more than 2.5 times the fire of diamond

2. Last a Lifetime

SUPERNOVA Moissanite will shine forever just as bright as the day you bought it.  Because it’s made from Silicon Carbide, a natural mineral, it will never change its appearance. Moissanite is also really tough and durable. On the Mohs hardness scale, Moissanite scores 9.25 out of 10, making it harder than Sapphires and Rubies. 

This matters because if you want to wear a ring everyday, like an engagement ring, then you don’t want it to scratch or chip easily.

3. Conflict Free & Ethical Choice

Round Engagement G02A

The appeal of Moissanite includes its ethical nature.  Being a lab-grown jewel, means that Moissanite has a guaranteed source of origin.  Moissanite is conflict-free, and unlike blood diamonds that have helped fund civil wars where millions of people have died, you can be confident Moissanite has not contributed to such atrocities. 

If you value making ethical and socially responsible choices, you will be proud to wear Moissanite. 


4. Environmentally Conscious

Moissanite has not been harvested from mines causing less environmental impact and degradation than mined jewels. Even though Moissanite is made using electricity the carbon footprint from making them is insignificant compared to mining a diamond. 

The major benefit of buying a Moissanite is its guaranteed source of its origin. You can have peace of mind knowing that your Moissanite was created conflict free, in a controlled environment and with little damage caused to the environment.


5. Value
