In 1893, Dr. Henri Moissan, a Nobel Prize winner, discovered a material in a meteor that rivaled the most beautiful diamonds the world had ever seen. Moissanite is incredibly rare in nature, but modern technology has brought this beautiful jewel to you. One of the ways a precious gems value is measured is by its hardness. The only jewel harder than Moissanite is a diamond, and Moissanite actually has a brilliance greater than diamonds; its fire, the ability to disperse light, is almost two and a half times times greater than that of a diamond. There are no two Moissanite jewels that are exactly alike. Many Moissanite jewels may have a faint saturation of color, which can range from teal to pearl to a pale yellow. Right now, all of our Moissanite jewelry is up to 50% off!
