Moissanite Rings and What You Should Know Before Buying One
Some great diamond alternatives to consider when buying an engagement ring are Satéur™ and Moissanite. Satéur™ Stone is identical to diamond the most amongst all diamond substitutes. Same brilliance, same elegance and quality, the Satéur™ brand is the top jewelry brand that has captured the heart of shoppers worldwide.
On the other hand, Moissanite gemstone rings are not just beautiful; they’re brilliant, tough, durable and unique as well but not as much as a diamond. When looking to buy moissanite rings online, you must know that they’re mostly lab-made moissanite. Natural moissanite are very rare as they come from a fallen meteor.
From a distance, Moissanite and diamond are similar but differences still abound and it’s important that you learn these differences before
buying one. There are differences in fire, brilliance, durability, intrinsic value, investment potential, etc. Moissanite rings for sale would cost way less than diamond in every way you look at it.
When compared side by side, moissanite ring price and diamond ring price are nowhere close. In this post, we have discussed everything you need to know about diamond alternative jewelry which includes the stunning Satéur™ brand and Moissanite jewelry.

What is Moissanite?
Originally, Moissanite was discovered from a fallen meteor from outside space by French scientist, Henri Moissan whose name the gemstone was named after. Moissanite is almost colorless and made from silicon carbide compound.
The Satéur™ above is difficult to distinguish from diamond with the naked eyes. More than 100,000 happy customers bear testament to this fact. Meanwhile diamond and Moissanite also look alike but they are actually very different even physically if you are observant enough.
For starters, Moissanite reflects light more and has more fire. Looking at it, you’d notice a rainbow-like brilliance to its sparkle. Diamond and Satéur™ reflects less light though.
Next, Moissanite is made from Silicon Carbide while diamond is made from carbon. In fact, the Moissanite in the market today is made in the laboratory because finding natural moissanite is difficult because it comes from meteors. Meteors don’t always fall to earth clearly.
Moissanite – Price
For diamond, price is determined by the 4C of classification- cut, color, clarity and carat. These factors determine how much a diamond is going to cost because generally, diamonds are natural occurring and therefore have more value.
On the other hand, Moissanite ring price is determined by size and carat. But beware, large moissanite gemstones are not always the best because the distinction from diamond is clearer when the stone is bigger.
Moissanite – Color
Moissanite – Brilliance
A lot of jewelry enthusiasts see moissanite brilliance as being a bit too much. This depends on preference. If you love your ring to be flashier without costing you so much, then go for a moissanite ring for sale. If you prefer diamond rings, be ready to spend more on a stone that has more value and traditional, natural beauty.
Moissanite – Clarity
Moissanite ring price is based on the clarity of the stone on it. The seller or manufacturer of the stone is the party that grades the moissanite stone unlike in diamond where an independent party like the GIA or AGS grades the stone. It is important to note that lab-made moissanite are actually 100% clear because of the simple fact that they’re made in the laboratory.
Moissanite – Cut
Moissanite as a diamond alternative looks best as a round brilliant cut. This design offers the highest brilliance and fire when exposed to adequate lighting. In addition to this, the color imperfection in moissanite is easy to hide when the cut is round.
Whichever cut you settle for when picking a moissanite ring online, ensure that you choose one that shields non-white color but enhances the brilliance of the stone.
