Moissanite As an Alternative to the Diamond Engagement Ring

By: Natalia Harrison | Dec 10 2009 | 332 words | 985 hits

Every day, engagement rings are becoming more and more extravagant. There are entire magazines devoted to them, websites that will help you design them, and jewelers that will help you find one that's morally conscious. Beautiful and elegant rings are being crafted using colored diamonds or gemstones as well. One really nice alternative to a diamond engagement ring is one that features a mineral called Moissanite.

Moissanite is a mineral that was first discovered on the inside of a meteor in the year 1893. Because there were very limited amounts of the substance on earth, it has since been recreated as a gemstone in laboratories. It has some carbon properties, much like a diamond, but they are not the same. This stone is better at reflecting light than a diamond is. It has also been proven to be much more durable. Are you ready for the best part yet? Moissanite engagement rings are much less expensive than diamonds and they look so much like the coveted gemstone that many professionals cannot easily distinguish between the two!

You do have to remember to be careful to check the color of your Moissanite very well, under a few different lightings if possible. This is because with the mineral makeup differences between a diamond and Moissanite, the latter stone may tend to have gray or green hues, especially in dim lights. Moissanite is not a fake diamond. It does look like a diamond, but they are, in fact, two separate stones, each one beautiful in its own way.

A good place to get a Moissanite engagement ring is JC Penny. They almost always have some in stock. Many other local retailers also have a nice selection of Moissanite jewelry but if you still have trouble finding a place close enough to you, you can visit http://www.moissanite.com/. It has a feature that will actually pull up your location on a map, and show you what Moissanite retailers are in your area. Take a look, and discover the beauty of Moissanite.
