What is Moissanite?

In 1893, French chemist Henri Moissan discovered silicon carbide, a then laboratory-grown material with the same sparkle as a diamond, in a meteor crater. Named after him, this new material, Moissanite, boasts a Moh's hardness of 9.25, second only to diamond. Offering a fraction of the cost of natural diamond, Moissanite has become a popular jewelry material, beloved for its sustainability and eco-friendliness.

Moissanites are laboratory-created gemstones, often regarded as a diamond substitute. On average, Moissanite stones weigh approximately 15% less than corresponding diamonds, due to their silicon carbide composition which proves less dense than the carbon of diamonds.

Our Moissanite stone's carat weight is gauged to a diamond's equivalent for reference. As each Moissanite is cut by hand, a ± 1/4 carat variance is typical. Our artisans, however, guarantee precise measurements, giving each stone its optimal fire and luminosity.
