If you’re in the market for an engagement ring, I’m going to let you in on a little secret that might just change your life.
Are you ready? Here it is:
You can have your dream engagement ring, hold your perfect wedding and buy that great house you and your partner just looked at and you won’t have to scrimp and save for years to do it all.
I know, it sounds impossible right? But let me introduce you to the answer, it’s time you learned about Moissanite.
What is Moissanite?
If you’ve started shopping around for an engagement ring, you might have already seen some Moissanite rings. The jewel is a very popular modern engagement ring choice, and for some very good reasons.
To give you a quick background, Moissanite is a created jewel using the naturally occurring gemstone Silicon Carbide. Moissanite is actually a very similar gemstone to a diamond
It is a colourless jewel that is extremely hard (9.25 on the Mohs scale, compared to 10 for diamond and 9 for sapphire) this means that it is also very durable, and suitable for everyday wear. Moissanite also has a higher brilliance and sparkle than a diamond (2.65 – 2.69, compared to 2.42 for diamond).
It’s important to know that a well-cut and polished Moissanite stone looks indistinguishable from a diamond to the human eye.
Of course, the real benefit of a Moissanite ring is that it will cost only approximately one tenth of the cost of a similar diamond ring.
Why a Moissanite engagement ring is the answer you’re looking for!
Moissanite is real life-saver for many couples who don’t want to spend all of their life’s savings on an engagement ring, but who still want that classic 1 carat or stunning 5 carat ring.
To give you an idea for comparison’s sake, a 1 carat loose Moissanite stone will cost you around $600. On the other hand, a 1 carat diamond, will cost you about $10,000.
These costs become even more dramatic when you upscale to 5 carats. 5 carats Moissanite comes in under $4,000, but in a diamond 5 carats can cost anywhere from $90K-$150k.
Obviously, this price difference is massive, and it raises some important questions. Is the more expensive option really worth years of sacrifice, going into debt, or having to compromise on your other financial goals and dreams?
The reality is that across the world, only 1 in 10 women can afford a 1 carat diamond. Because of the expense, many couples think that they will be saving-up for years just to be able to get the carat diamond that they want. Couples are stunned to realise that they can actually afford to buy an amazing 5 carat Moissanite ring right away, no waiting or saving required.
The 5 carat Moissanite will be so much more impressive than the 1 carat diamond, so when you find out just how affordable a 5 carat ring can be, the choice you will make is obvious.
But even apart from all of these big cost considerations, many couples find that once they start looking at Moissanite rings, they quickly fall in love with this beautiful jewel.
What is your ideal ring
Think about your ideal ring – do you picture it having a dramatic halo cut? Maybe you’d love a delicate Pave band? Perhaps the ring design for you has several stones all set together in an elegant design. Or maybe you’ve seen an amazing celebrity ring that you just can’t get out of your head.
Because Moissanite, at times, can be so much more affordable than a diamond, you’ll probably find that not only will you be able to afford a larger stone with a higher carat and better grade, but you’ll also be able to afford a setting and a design that you really love, and really want.
Many women find that suddenly that celebrity style ring is no longer out of their reach with Moissanite. You can have a beautiful setting, multiple stones, and better quality ring all around but for only a fraction of the cost.
This is why for many couples, Moissanite is the ultimate option for an engagement ring. It really will let you have it all. You have to be practical if you have big financial goals like so many of us do these days. Of course, you want to be able to have an engagement ring you are incredibly proud of while still having the savings left. Certainly, you want to be able to afford a wedding and a honeymoon (that really big expense!). You also want to save up for you first home.
So now that you’re in on this secret, I recommend taking a look at our beautiful collection of Moissanite rings. You’ll quickly realise that you too can afford a 1 carat or 5 carat engagement ring. You won’t have to compromise on any of your other big dreams! Moissanite will amaze you like it does to many other couples.
