Why Is Moissanite Diamond Jewelry So Beautiful And Eternal?

For a long time, lovers of gemstones have looked for something to replace diamonds. However, we understand that not everyone can afford diamonds with their astronomical price tag! People often worry about the huge investment they have to make on diamond rings while proposing to their girlfriends or gifting their loved ones. Thus, we present you with Moissanite Rings that are beautiful, exquisite, and oh so stunning! The glamour and luster of Moissanite will surprise you. 

Moissanite was discovered by the French chemist Dr Henri Moissan (thus the name ‘Moissanite!’) while looking over rock samples from a meteor crater. The crater happened in Canyon Diablo, Arizona, in 1893. Dr Moissan inspected crystalline chemical composition that would be ideal for effective electrical conductivity. But in the process, he discovered Moissanite stones which he first mistook for diamonds. Moissanite rings are made of silicon carbide but appear the same as diamonds. However, they are durable, long-lasting, and superior in quality. Despite being less costly, they do not resemble some cheap imitation of diamonds. Instead, they provide more brilliance and fire and add that extra touch of bling to your Moissanite Rings.

Firstly, the main reason you should invest in moissanite engagement rings is that they are less costly and provide a better investment return. You can buy a bigger carat gemstone by investing less money. Secondly, they are as durable as diamonds. Moissanite Rings can withstand daily wear and tear and will not chip off easily. Most of the moissanite gemstones available today are grown in laboratories using advanced technology and machinery. Thus, they are devoid of any impurities and imperfections and look perfect in appearance. Just like diamonds, they are available in various shapes and sizes as well as in different colors, such as blue, green, yellow, pink, and many others.

The answer depends on person to person, but we suggest you remove your engagement ring while going to bed. Although there is nothing dangerous, there is a possibility of snagging your sheets, clothes, or hair (especially if you have a raised setting!). In addition, the ring’s prongs can get damaged and loosen the stone setting. If you are not removing your ring, make sure to put it in a secured place, such as a fabric-lined jewelry box, ring dish, or ring pouch.

However, you should remember that you should not use harsh cleaning products to clean your ring. Harmful chemicals can corrode the quality of your stone. Therefore, ensure that the product you are using is non-toxic and non-abrasive. In this regard, Ammonia is the ideal choice. You can easily mix one-part Ammonia and two-part water and gently scrub the stone using a soft toothbrush before rinsing it in running water.

You can clean your Moissanite Rings as many times as you like. They are not very high-maintenance and can hold their sparkle for a long period.
