Sound good good to be true? Before you shop for moissanite jewelry online, find out what makes moissanite the best value from Moissanite.net. With nearly 100 years of fine jewelry experience, we can help you make the right choices.

Created to look, feel and reflect light unlike any other jewel, moissanite by Charles & Colvard has been gaining popularity worldwide since its introduction to the fine jewelry market in 1998. Unlike cubic zirconia and diamond imitations, moissanite (sometimes mistakingly referred to or advertised as 'moissanite synthetic diamonds' or 'moissanite diamonds') won't cloud or lose its brilliance. Read on for the top six facts about moissanite jewelry.

  • The second-hardest stone in the world - won't scuff or scratch. Moissanite is so durable, it's nearly as hard as a diamond. While a diamond scores a 10 on the hardness scale, moissanite comes in just below at 9 1/4. In fact, it's harder than sapphire or ruby. When you shop our moissanite rings on sale, you never have to worry about them scuffing or scratching - just like a natural diamond.

  • More brilliant than a diamond - won't cloud or lose its brilliance. It's true - moissanite actually offers more brilliance and fire than natural diamonds. When light enters a diamond, it bends and refracts back out of the gem. Moissanite will not cloud or lose its brilliance like cubic zirconia and diamond imitations do. But moissanite goes one step farther. When light enters the stone, it breaks in two, increasing its refraction - so you get more dazzle from your moissanite jewelry.

  • Nearly colorless. If moissanite was graded like a diamond on the diamond color scale, it would appear in the near colorless range, making moissanite engagement rings a very popular choice. Ranging from nearly colorless to a very faint yellow, moissanite tends to appear nearly white in a gold, platinum or white gold settings.

  • No one has to know. While today's advanced testing can detect moissanite, a trained eye can't discern it from looks alone. When you buy moissanite jewelry online from Moissanite.net, it's just between you and us.

  • More affordable - and safe. You can buy moissanite jewelry online for one-tenth the price of a comparable diamond. Whether you're on a budget or simply want the dazzle of diamonds without the risk of wearing such high-priced gems, moissanite is a great alternative.

  • Limited Warranty. Every piece of near colorless moissanite is guaranteed by Charles & Colvard, the makers of moissanite, to maintain its fire and brilliance - so you never have to worry about your moissanite ring becoming dull and lifeless.
