Moissanite is a rare gemstone naturally found in meteorites, discovered by Dr. Henri Moissan over 100 years ago. It looks very similar to diamond, except with more visible rainbow sparkle - which we adore. It's also strong enough to last forever, second only to diamond on the Mohs Scale of Hardness.
Moissanite is not a diamond substitute. It is a unique gemstone. This beautiful stone sparkles more than diamond does and it’s harder to scratch than ruby or sapphire.
Because it is so rare, commercial moissanite is grown in a lab with minimal environmental impact.
Unlike mined diamonds, moissanite is available freely on the market without artificial shortages and cartel pricing. This allows us to offer you luxurious choices, like rare antique cuts and generous stone sizes, at a fair price.
