A Dazzling 18K white gold plated 1.9CT round brilliant cut Moissanite engagement ring. On the market today, Moissanite is one of the best faux diamonds that exist. It is made of silicon carbide and is almost as hard as real diamond (moissanite's hardness is 9.5 on the Mohs scale, whereas diamond's is 10).
The latest in new technology allows us to recreate an earth mined diamond. Now these eternally sparkling gems are more affordable to all. Manually cut by hand to ensure a dazzling sparkle.
Most people cannot tell the difference between moissanite and diamonds. The GIA has even said that moissanite is “much closer to diamond in overall appearance and heft than any previous diamond imitation.”
One way to tell apart moissanite from diamond is to examine the stone’s brilliance and fire. Moissanite has more fire and brilliance than diamond – it isn’t as noticeable in smaller stones, but in stones over 5mm, it’s much more noticeable.
