Congratulations on finding the person you want to spend your whole life with! There are so many decisions that you have to make, like how will you propose, where will you propose, and most importantly what kind of ring you will get them. If you still haven’t decided on a ring, this is the place to be as we will tell you why you should be getting a moissanite ring.
Have you heard the old 3 month rule? It says that the engagement ring should cost at least 3 months worth of the guy’s salary. We say toss that rule in the bin, because now you have something that is prettier, shinier, and most importantly cheaper. Here are some of the reasons why you need to opt for moissanite rings:
The first and the biggest advantage of moissanite ring is that it is much cheaper than diamond but looks just like it. A diamond’s price is determined by its cut, clarity, carat, and color, but the price of moissanite is determined by its size and type that determines whether it is enhanced or not. A one carat diamond can cost around $5000, but a moissanite of one carat can cost as low as $600.
Moissanites are available in a number of different cuts like:
The best part about moissanite is that the solidity of the gem will create a band that will last for a very long time. The stone will not lose its shine and become gloomy. Even after years, it will shine as brightly as your love for your better half and you will be able to pass it down your family for years.
Moissanite is preferred by people because of their excellence, because they have a lighting that other stones don’t have. They shine mildly and can create rainbows just like a diamond. Most of the people can’t tell the difference between a diamond and a moissanite.
Moissanite are sturdy and durable, which means that they can resist abrasion and scratching. A diamond is harder than a moissanite, but both the stones have the same kind of durability. It also has a resistance against chipping and breaking.
Easy care and Maintenance
Some of the stones are not easy to take care of and eventually lose their shine, but that is not the case with moissanite. You can wear it all the time and it won’t change its appearance at all.
Avoid Problems with Diamonds
One great thing about moissanite is that it does not have the same social issues like diamonds do. They are created inside a lab with the help of the latest equipment and are not excavated in doubtful ways. Since a moissanite does not have the same social significance as an engagement band, it can be gifted to anyone without indicating any kind of commitment. Of course, it can also be gifted as an engagement ring; it is all up to you.
