What is Moissanite, and Can Moissanite jewelry be worn on a daily basis?
Yes, Moissanite Jewelry can be worn daily as it is affordable, durable, and elegant. Moissanite name is given to a naturally occurring and laboratory-grown mineral made up of silicon carbide. It is one of the hardest gemstones on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, with a rating of 9.25 which makes it less scratchable. Moissanite is used as an alternative to diamonds. Moissanite jewelry reflects light in a way that is similar to natural diamonds. Chemically, mossanite is a silicon carbide (SiC), which is naturally unavailable on earth and found its way through meteors, that entered the earth’s atmosphere. Hence, it is a rare mineral. Moissanite is the perfect choice for those who want to wear beautiful jewelry without burning a hole in their pocket. Moissanite jewelry is a durable and hard gemstone that can withstand daily wear and tear. It makes you feel more confident. Moissanite has a lustrous sparkle and uses the same color grading scale as diamonds. Moissanite comes in an array of shapes and sizes that can be customized as per the customer's needs. Moissanite can elevate your attire and make a statement. However, to wear it daily, it is preferred not to expose jewelry to harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, or abrasives. It is extremely hard to differentiate a moissanite from a diamond with the naked eye. Even under a microscope, it would be hard for an untrained eye to differentiate between the two. Natural moissanite particles are extremely rare, but luckily, modern science allows them to be beautifully replicated in controlled laboratory environments. As a lab-grown stone, moissanite is an ethical and eco-friendly choice. Since moissanite does not require mining, you can rest assured that your stone’s source is easily traceable and was created without the use of unethical labor practices.
