The passion and devotion that women have for their jewellery is like the passion your soul has for your body. Both are inseparable. And, if we look closely, we may be able to grasp the meaning that they attach to their jewellery. Jewellery is something that brings out femininity in a woman's attire. The jewellery that they tote is a classic symbol of their woman hood. It makes them cherish the ardor and adoration that they sense in being a woman. If you're a woman reading this, you'd definitely be able to connect with what I'm saying. If you're a man, try to visualize what I'm saying, you'd be able to sense the taste of eternal pleasure.
No raiments are complete without the perfect set of ornaments to go with it. But, how do you bring yourself to drain all your resources in acquiring jewellery for yourself. Looks like all your dreams shattering, huh?! Well, that is precisely why researchers try to look for more affordable alternatives to such expensive gems. After such an extensive research, a gem just like diamond was found.
And so, to make his mark in this field of research, a French chemist Henri Moissan discovered Moissanite in 1893. From the sky, once came a meteor. This meteor lead to the discovery of this spectacular gem, Moissanite. It was reckoned that the sparkly white and beautiful Meteor was made of diamonds. But then, when researchers researched, the discovered that the composition of this beautiful substance was not carbon, it was Silicone! Thus, they deduced that this is a separate form of gem and named it Moissanite after the French Chemist who discovered it.
Never heard of a Moissanite? Hear it now!
Now, considering the fact that Diamond cannot fit always. Sometimes, it might be heavy on our pocket and sometimes on our finger! Thus, alternatives to it are developed, with features so close, even your clone would worry a bit!
Moissanite does that same job. It is an actual simulation of diamond that is a composition of Silicon Carbide instead of carbon. To be specific, basically Moissanite has an appearance, similar to that of a Natural Diamond. However, it isn't a real natural diamond. Since it is next to impossible to tell the two of them apart, they are interchangeable. Which is why people are using it as an alternative to diamond.
As mentioned Before, Moissanite was originally a discovery from the meteor that was lobbed in 1893. As the name clearly suggests, it was a discovery accomplished by Henri Moissan, a French scientist. He mistook the white sparkling matter from the crater as a diamond. But, after several series of researches, he found out that its composition was Carbide of Silicon Carbide. Clearly, it is pretty evident from our knowledge so far that naturally occurring Moissanite is extremely rare. Although the Meteor didn't give us a huge abundance of the gem, it did give us an insight into another possible composition to get a diamond like gem. And so, using the same silicon Carbide composition, Moissanite was grown into labs. It requires a time span of 2 to 3 months in order to nurture them in labs.
To be clear, Moissanite is not a precious gem. Unlike diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and rubies, Moissanite is not considered as a precious gem. It is considered as a semiprecious gem. However, for the diamond lovers who also like their pant's pockets to be bereft of holes, Moissanite is the best option. Wear it, flaunt it, love it!
Where do we get Moissanite?
Owing to their rare nature and unavailability on Earth, per se, Moissanite is nurtured in Labs. This means that their production requires no mining atball. This also means that you acquire a gem just as good as diamond without wounding mother nature. Thus, you can easily identify the point of their origin. Now, considering that we're protecting our mother Earth from, well let's say Us, we prefer Moissanite. Due to its creation in Labs, it creates considerably low carbon footprints. So, if you choose Moissanite made jewellery, you're choosing your own life by choosing Earth's existence. Make a responsible decision, choose a gem that makes both you, and our mother smile with elation.
Moissanite, Which one do I go for?
Clearly, to assess the standard of a diamond, we bank upon the concept of evaluation through 4C's, ( Color, cut, carat, clarity). However, when it comes to Moissanite, the evaluation becomes a lot more simple. The only basis to grade them is their Color. We may say that the reason for striking off the rest of the 3 C's is their similarity in those respects, throughout irrespective of their quality. So, one thing is clear, you can easily assess the grading of your Moissanite with your naked eye. What you cannot do with your naked eye is tell them apart from a natural diamond.
Now, a most often faced dilemma while choosing a Moissanite is if it will go along with the diamond's pulse. But, you need not worry! It's merely a myth that since Moissanite does not occur naturally, or since it's a semiprecious stone, it's no comparison to a real diamond. Well, head's up people! Like it or not, it's as much a competition for a diamond as Fred Weasely and George Weasley. Moreover, you're saving your wallet some weight.
Hallmarks of Moissanite
Now that we're talking about Moissanite, it's not good manners to neglect its prominent features. So, here are all the features of Moissanite, enlisted below for a better understanding.

As we emphasised over it earlier, diamonds are evaluated on the basis of 4 C's; Cut, clarity, carat, color. Thus, the more refined the diamond's 4Cs are, the costlier it is. However, when it comes to a Moissanite, only the size and it's refinement are the deciding factors.
Let's say, the difference between the price of a diamond and a Moissanite is just as much as it is between Ginny Weasley and Ron Weasley; siblings of the same family yet poles apart.
Now when it comes to the shape, you can't just compromise on it because it will determine the entire look of the jewellery.
