Is the hunt for a new bridal set over already?
Long Lost Love
I am swiftly approaching a decade of marriage. While my love and relationship continue to flourish, there is one thing that died a long time ago; my relationship to my wedding ring. Sadly, she was lost after being removed to complete house chores. Yes, let all the tiny violins play.
Luckily, I’m a “move on quickly” kind of girl with a love of shopping. Recently, I decided to test out some rings to see what I might like before making a final purchase. I am so glad I did, as I found the mother of all discoveries: moissanite!
Moissanite Is My Soulmate
Moissanite is a gemstone, crafted out of a meteorite, that crash-landed into Earth centuries ago. Similar in durability and strength to diamonds, it is made of silicon carbide. Because it is so similar to diamonds, sellers often market it as a diamond simulant. I’m not a fan of that for several reasons:
- Fraud. I’m not a fan of faking anything. Just call a thing a thing.
- Moissanite is better than diamonds in many ways, barring industrial use. So why pretend it’s something else?
Let Me Explain…
My Top Reasons For Loving Moissanite
- 1. More fire and brilliance than diamonds!!!
- 2. More rare than diamonds!!!
Shine, Baby, Shine!
Moissanite is more sparkly than diamonds! Check out the section of this article called “Brilliance & Fire (Sparkle).” It details all the technical and scientific reasons in a very down to earth way. I have real diamonds, and the sparkle of this moissanite ring impressed even me. I can not stop looking at it. See for yourself!
None of the above photos or videos have been filtered. This is my genuine moissanite stone catching the light. It’s insane. Since bling is what I’m looking for in a ring, moissanite is a brilliant choice. Yeah, I said it, all the pun intended.
Did you know that diamonds aren’t actually rare? They’re quite plentiful, in fact. Genuine moissanite, however, comes from a meteorite, making them one of the rarest stones. Granted, most moissanite sold today is lab created. While man-made stones are a wonderful and more sustainable option, the allure of having a celestial object on my finger makes me ecstatic to own genuine moissanite stones.
I have no intention of passing my genuine, moissanite ring off as a diamond. Given the information above, I don’t know why anyone would. When my ring was being doted on at a recent Christmas party, I eagerly volunteered, “It’s moissanite”! I then began to explain all the reasons why I was in love. The bottom line is that moissanite is a gorgeous stone in its own right and should be celebrated as such.
In summation, I am so thrilled to own a genuine moissanite bridal set. These stones are gorgeous, more rare than diamonds, and truly out of this world; just like me.
