About our gems
What is moissanite?
Moissanite was discovered by Henri Moissan from a meteor crater in 1893. (That’s right, you are wearing something out of this world!) It’s a naturally occurring silicon carbide mineral.
However, most moissanites sold today are lab-grown because it is extremely rare in nature. Being lab-grown, they can have very ideal characteristics, giving you the most brilliant gem for your engagement ring.
Moissanite vs diamonds: What is the difference?
It is extremely difficult to tell moissanite apart from diamonds because of its close resemblance. Virtually all areas of the 4Cs (Cut, Color, Clarity & Carat) of moissanite are identical to a diamond, making it an extremely popular alternative; costing only 1/10 of the price.
Even jewellery experts have a hard time telling them diamonds and moissanites apart using the naked eye. They will need to closely examine it using a loupe and find the double refraction of moissanite.
1. Fire and Brilliance (how much it sparkles)
Fire (coloured flashes) and brilliance (white flashes) occur in both diamonds and moissanites. These properties give the gems their sparkle when you look at them. Having a higher reflective index and fire dispersion, moissanite sparkles more than diamonds. This is especially pronounced during the day in sunlight where you can see the rainbow flashes emitted by moissanite.
Diamonds are the hardest gem known to men, having a Mohs scale of 10. Moissanites are the second hardest gem known to men, having a Mohs scale of 9.25-9.5. This gives both gems high durability that lasts a lifetime.
Are luna's gems certified?
Yes, all our gems above 0.5 carats are graded by GRA.
Difference in carat weight for moissanite and diamond
Moissanites are roughly 10% lighter than diamonds. This means that for a similar-sized 6.5mm 1 carat diamond, the equivalent 6.5mm moissanite will be approximately 0.90 carat. That said, this difference does not bear significance as it is indistinguishable by the naked eye.
luna uses the conventional diamond equivalent carat when describing our moissanite gems to give you the best approximation of the gem’s size.
