Moissanite vs Diamond, Color:
Mined Diamonds come in a variety of colors ranging from icy-white clear to yellow or gray hues. Like snowflakes, no two mined Diamonds will be the same. A mined gemstone's range of color variation is due to environmental factors the gemstone was naturally growing in. The more clear or white a Diamond appears, the more valuable and desirable it is considered to consumers.
Moissanite on the other hand, originates from space meteorites and is not a gem you find naturally on Earth. Due to this fact, all Moissanite gems are lab created because sourcing its natural form is nearly impossible in nature. Since new Moissanites are grown in labs, the environment the gemstone grows in can be controlled and regulated for more the most consistent and best production results.
Moissanites available on the market today are colorless. Moissanites range from colors equivalent to D-I range, or the two highest tiers on the color scale. They are guaranteed to be DEF in color and VS2 clarity or better.
Moissanite vs Diamond, Hardness:
The harder a material, the more difficult it is to scratch or chip. While no gemstone is indestructible, some gemstones are slightly harder and more durable for daily wear. On the Mohs Scale of Hardness, Moissanite is rated as a 9.5 out of 10, which is higher than any gemstone used in jewelry besides Diamond itself. Diamonds are the hardest known mineral, scores a 10. For reference, rubies and sapphires have an Mohs score of 9, and emeralds have a score of 7.
Moissanite vs Diamond, Brilliance:
Brilliance, which refers to the gemstone's ability to reflect white light, is a good measure for how much ‘sparkle and fire’ a gem has. Brilliance relies on the gemstone's refraction. Moissanite disperses light very well and has higher light refraction than Diamond and will appear more brilliant. Additionally, Moissanite is less likely to attract grease or dirt over time than a Diamond due to its crystalline structure which should help keep the ‘sparkle’ longer in between cleanings.
