Have you ever noticed that Moissanite wedding rings are cheaper? There’s a good reason for that. Because Moissanite is grown in a lab, it doesn’t have the usual cost of digging, shipping, and finding a common mineral diamond. So, Moissanite rings and jewelry cost less per carat than a diamond engagement ring, but they are a bit better. It means a lot for your money. Super sequins, low price.
However, that doesn’t mean you should expect all models to be automatically cheap. You will need to consider the quality of the design whether you are working on a custom piece, a metal strip, and matching stones in your build.
How Moissanites Are Better
Brides-to-be often compare Moissanites to diamonds because of their similarity in appearance and style. With two bright, clear, natural gems, we’ll set the odds below.
Price: As seen above, when comparing gemstones alone, moissanites are much cheaper than diamonds, typically costing 85% less than mined diamonds. This means that if you have a fixed budget, you can afford a very big Moissanite, which makes statements.
Moral values: The moissanites did not cause any conflict. Growing up in a lab, gemstones lack the personal, natural concern of mined diamonds (and any other mineral, for that matter). You can also reduce your local impact by purchasing locally created and designed Moissanite in your country.
Beauty: We think both stones are equally beautiful (and consider ourselves wedding lovers). You won’t lose taste or style lifting with Moissanite versus Diamond. And if you want to be nerdy, Moissanites actually score higher than diamonds on the bend scale, giving them more sparkle and brilliance than diamonds.

Moissanite Treasures: Discovery of the Rocks
Moissanite was discovered 120 years ago by Nobel Prize-winning French chemist Dr. Henri Moissan. He wanted pure chemicals suitable for electrical work. During the research, Drs. Moissan discovered silicon carbide – a remarkable and rare mineral – in a meteorite bag in Arizona. It was then named “moissanite” in his honor.
Dr. Moissan spent the rest of his life trying to recreate what he found, but without success.
In the late 1990s, researchers at Research Triangle Park in North Carolina developed and approved the process for making pure silicon carbide (SiC). This has been used in the development of a variety of products including semiconductors, LED lamps and extremely durable drilling tools and abrasives.
Due to its durability, moissanite can be found in a variety of cuts, giving jewelry designers a wide range of ring options, including moissanite and other jewelry settings.
