Reasons to choose moissanite over diamonds:

1. More affordable:

When buying a product, people pay special attention to its own value as well as its price. Moissanite rings are made from synthetic moissanite so it avoids the cost of mining and is only 10% of the price of a diamond of the same carat weight, which allows you to save on your budget or get a larger size stone for the same budget.

2. High Hardness:

Moissanite has a Mohs hardness value of 9.25 (out of 10), which is the second hardest gemstone in the world, almost comparable to the hardness of diamonds. The high hardness makes it highly practical as it can avoid scratches that may be brought about by scuffing in daily life.

Moissanite's refractive index and dispersion values are greater than diamonds, and its birefringence enhances its fire and brightness, and after a high level of cutting and polishing, it has a more sparkling sparkle.
